I have been trying to solve this problem for days, and this place has kept coming up in my google search results, so I thought Id try it.
So, lets get down to business
I have a BenQ DW1620, with firmware B7T9, on Windows XP.
A few days ago, I needed to write a DVD. I first tried a TDK DVD RW. I tried writing (using Nero), and it all seemed to be going fine. But it just got stuck at 1% complete. I let it keep going overnight, and was dissapointed to see it was the same again in the morning. So, I closed Nero, and put in a Mitsubishi DVD RW, and tried. It did exactly the same thing, except this time when I went to cancel the write, it froze my computer.
So now, I have a DVD writer that does anything but write DVDs!
I have tried the following
-changing IDE cable
-changing IDE channel
-Installing XP Service Pack 2
Please help, I am at my wits end, and need to burn my assignment to DVD so I can hand it in on Wednesday.
