BenQ DW1625 stuck at 1x or 2x record speed

Back in July I purchased the BenQ DW1625 lightscribe burner. Everything went fine except that when I got a new computer last month, the drive started writing at the 1x and 2x record speeds on 8x certfied DVD-R or +R media. It burned CD’s just fine. Very frustrating as it would take over 1 hour to burn a full disk.

Contacted BenQ and they suggested that the drive jumper setting must be the Master and not the slave on the IDE channel. I did this and sure enough it worked. Just thought i’d pass this along.

What firmware are you using. The latest is the BBIA firmware which you can download from the Benq page.
