Thanks for the heads up masotime :). Off to check it out…

Thank you!
Something new to play with it :stuck_out_tongue:

This is what happens when I try to flash

Download link at BenQ Global not working right now. (07/05/2005 8:45 GMT)

Check out BenQ Europe (Germany) 1640 f/w page

Edit. Beaten by Quikee with a minute… :bigsmile:

My guess is they have pulled the firmware because it doesn’t work :wink:

Maybe the screwed up the flasher =)

I have the same problem too :o

My flash worked!
Went from BSHB to new one.
Have an “original” BenQ, no OEM.


Glad yours worked. Mines a retail version also, so it’s nothing to do with that :wink:

You could be right! :iagree:
Just for comparison:
Media YUDEN000T02
Both burned at 8x from the same batch, also i tested the media from this batch
before with the plex, LG and the 1620, no problems!
The 1st one burned with BSHB
2nd one with BSIB ( It looks not nice to me, i’d flash back )



And it still can’t overspeed…


how are the write strategies? quality?

(answered before i posted … should’ve typed faster ;))

Looks like the PI is a bit lower, jitter a bit better, but still, PIF seems to mountain :S How strange !

Here is the MID list. The +RW speeds are probably not displayed correctly. The next MSCE version will support BSIB.
