Benq DW1620 w/ Ritek Ridata G04

vbimport

#1

The G04’s are not working at all for me, and I bought 2 50-packs of 'em. The drive simply doesn’t recognize the Ritek 4x DVD-R’s - at all…

It’s quite a dilemma.

RiCKY2004 seems to have also had this issue, though I’m not sure if he’s found a way to resolve it.

I’m using the Benq DW1620 with the B7T9 flashware, but I’ve also tried burning with all the previous versions of the flashware, to no avail. I’m also using the latest version of Nero (OEM).

I’m calling out to all you experts out there. I need your help!

Thank you.

I use the ritek G04 with my benq 1620 without any problems. Sometimes after burning though, it does not recognize that there is a disk in the drive.


#3

Those are definitely bad experiences with BenQ. I’ve also had similar issues with -R discs. It’s bad to hear such things happening.
I don’t know about the G04, but the R03 (+R) works great.


#4

Hmm.

I forgot to mention that my drive is the OEM version, and I crossflashed it to the BenQ B7T9 firmware.

The only reason I did this was because I thought (hoped) it would allow my drive to recognize these G04 discs, but it unfortunately didn’t work.

I just found this thread, in which another forumgoer, using the same OEM DW1620 drive as me, got the G04’s to work by changing his firmware.

This hasn’t worked for me, though, but at least now I know it’s possible to use the G04 with the DW1620.

Well, I’m at a loss.

Your help is appreciated,

What does this mean? What in the previous post display bad experiences with the Benq? I personally would dump the Ritek Ridata G04 purchase some quality media…

Try these, TY02’s. They burn at 12X just fine with the 1620! There will always be an argument, or at least a discussion on the value/price of media. Frankly, it only takes a few bad burns going to the trashcan that equalize the price difference between budget and quality media…

It means that I’ve read the 2 posts above mine.
One says:
“Sometimes after burning though, it does not recognize that there is a disk in the drive.”
The other says:
“The G04’s are not working at all for me, and I bought 2 50-packs of 'em. The drive simply doesn’t recognize the Ritek 4x DVD-R’s - at all…”


#7

I can still return one of the G04 50-packs.

However, the pack I just opened cannot be returned, and being that I purchased them, I would like to try and troubleshoot this problem so that I may get my money’s worth out of them. I don’t have 50 cups in my cupboard, unfortunately :wink:

Your help is appreciated.

You can test different firmware versions, or maybe even modify write strategies. But in the end, only you can decide how much effort and time you want to invest to save $20.00 or $30.00……… There are plenty of people here that are willing to help and offer suggestions if you want to go down the road………. Good Luck! :slight_smile:


#10

Strange ! RitekG04 working perfect for me, No problem what so ever. Must have burned about 100 of them :slight_smile: take a look at :

While on the whole G04 do write pretty well on the Benq the drive does seem to have minor issues with the lower quality stuff. QC isnt as good as it was at Ritek and a lot of C grade (and below) G04 seem to have slipped into retail, this the Benq doesnt like, the better (for that read older stocks) of G04 the Benq has 0 problems with. I have examples seemingly from all the dubious quality levels and end up burning the crap(er) stuff in my Pioneer 108 (which likes it) and the good stuff in the Benq.


#12

Never had any problems with the 1620 and my Ridisc G04 (yes, older stock) : actually I think the burn quality on average is quite better than you would think for -R discs from the cheaper (than TY,mcc) range.
As far your problem, the drive not recognizing them, I don’t know: it’s not the firmware though, as I had no problems with either B7P9 or B7T9.
So Prototype is probably right about lower grade (newer?) batches.



#13

Thanks for your help, guys.

Having tried them out on another PC with a different model/brand of DVD burner, and having experienced the same results, I think it’s safe to conclude that the discs themselves are, indeed, faulty.

The only thing I can think of that could be the issue is Service Pack 2. Both PC’s that I tested it on are running SP2. The thing is, I need SP2 for the PC to recognize one of my hard drives.

Before writing this off as faulty discs, should I try uninstalling SP2, testing the discs, and then using system restore to revert back to SP2?

Actually, now that I think of it, there is one more PC I might be able to test these discs out on: My mother’s laptop. I don’t think she has SP2 installed (she’s not computer savvy ^_^) She’ll be arriving here later today, so I’ll give it a go and report back here.

Once again, thank you for your help.

Ok, here’s an update.

I just tried a G04 out on the Toshiba Satellite laptop PC and it recognized the DVD-R disc! So the discs are not faulty.

The laptop is, indeed, running SP2, so that’s not the issue.

The drive is a Pioneer DVR-SK12D (ID: Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K12D), and it’s running the 1.05 firmware.

I feel this discovery is a step in the right direction. We know, now, that the discs are not faulty.

We know that the discs are not recognized on two out of three PC’s in my house.

We know one of those two PC’s is factory-built (a Dell), so it is unlikely that we are dealing with a hardware installation error.

We know that others have gotten the G04 to work on their DW1620’s, so, once again, it is not a hardware issue.

So, most likely we’re dealing with some sort of software issue, here. Windows XP Pro settings, I suppose. I guess I need to determine what’s different about the way the laptop is set up as opposed to the two desktop computers.

Thank you for your help so far, and further suggestions are always appreciated :slight_smile:

UPDATE

I can confirm that my DW1620 is capable of reading G04’s that have already been burnt with data. It is only the blank G04’s that it fails to read.

Thus, I am in the same exact boat as RiCKY2004, whom I referenced to earlier.

RiCKY2004: I sent you a PM. I’m looking forward to a response from you. Maybe we can figure out just what’s going on here…

To all cdfreaks patrons: Any help or advice from you is greatly appreciated. You’ve helped me a lot so far, and for that I am grateful.

Thank you,

-Auriel-

Get a newer version of Nero. I think you have 3.0 try getting the latest version.


#18

@Orazal: No, I have Nero 6.6.0.8.

UPDATE

I found THIS on the Microsoft Support site.

It describes my problem to the tee, assuming that by DVD-RW they mean DVD-R/RW.

However, the article is outdated (June 19, 2003), and my Udfs.sys file is version 5.1.2600.2180, so I guess we’ve hit another dead end… :confused:

My head hurts.

I correct this problem in my drive…

I read in many posts that some old firmware clean the eeprom (something like the learnt reset eeprom in the liteon’s… it sound strange, coz even benq engenieers don’t know nothing about this)… I flash my 1620 with that firmware (I think it was the B7L9, but i’m not sure… please confirm), and then flash back to the latest firmware… Strange but this solves my problem… and now with ala’s speedpatch… wow this drive rocks!
