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.
