Hi!

This is a Verbatim 2.4x DL printable in Jewelcase. I bought 2 of these. These two had both small spots on the outer edge which made a bad quality just before and after the layer break. I sent them to Verbatim and got replacements. These are fine now:

1st Pic: Quality Scan
2nd Pic: Transfer @MAX
3nd Pic: Quality Scan printed and scanned 3 hrs later

Burn speed should have been 8x, but the first Layer was written at 4x, the second faster but I don´t know if it was 6x or 8x.

My latest Burn- Getting better.
2.4x speed burn



#127

This is the very first burn of any kind using BSOB

OS // off
SB // on/on
WOPC // off
ImgBurn
Speed // 2.4


#128

Was at 99 until right after the layer break. Held at 97 until close to the end. All in all a pretty good burn.


#129

Thats a nice burn for dual layer. Just waiting for the price of the media to fall before I burn any, my DW1620 burnt 1 before I sold it & the DW1640 has not cut its teeth yet (& wont now as I have a 1655).


#130

I received my 1655 today. Putting it in a new rig I’m building.


#131

what settings did you use? SB and WPOC ON?


#132

SB On/On WOPC On, Overspeed off


#133

new 10pk of MKM001 in my 1640 w/BSOB…scanned in one of my 716As…


#134

Ok Freaks!

Here it is my first burn on BENQ: VERBATIM -R 4X

WOPC: ON
OS: OFF
AS ON

The Nero 6.0.6.1.8. refuzes to burn it, so i had to use Clone DVD ( almost 6G taken from internet… :rolleyes: )


So, what do you think?

For reference, my first and only Burn on Plextor:

Maybe i should use a more recent FW for this operation…but i think, its ok, and my DVD Player Philips 737, wont complain :flower:

#137

Latest burn now using BSOB. I think BSMB was better at DL burning.
Why can’t benq get around to adding verbatim +DL 6x to the firmware?
Does anybody know?
Anyhow here’s my latest burn. Please give your opinions.



#138

this is my first DL burn. 1640 with BSOB with OS-off, WOPC-on, Solid Burn on/on, booktpye set to -r
I am using Verbatim MKM-001-00. I burned using Imgeburn and it went at about 6-8x on a 2.4x rated disk. The whoile disk burned in about 15 minutes. The quality scan looked funky, but yielded a decent % score. However, the movie starts poppin’ and lockin’ on my pioneer stand aloine at about 3/4 the way through the disk.

Any thoughts?

I am going to set it for 4x bruning and try again.



#139

is this any better. same specs as above, but burned at 4x. going to try 2.4x now not too pleased yet as I think this will also stall on my home player.
