BenQ DW1640 -- for DVD+-R *DL* (dual/double layer)

ricobico, you must be using a really old version of cd speed! current is 4.11 :slight_smile:

My latest Burn,
ImageBrn was used at x2.4


yet another one, same specs as above.


I can olny find 4.10 not 4.11. where do I get it?

Here is 1640 burning Sony DVD+R (4X) after installation of Nero 6.6.1.4;



Hi :slight_smile:
You can dl CD\DVDSpeed from my sig. If you also dl ala42s’ enable sb, copy it to Nero Tools folder & double click to enter into reg. You’ll then be able to enable/disable SB/OS via CD\DVDSpeed.

thanks - trying it out now.

imageBurn at x2.4


This is my first DL burn with my new Sony 810a flashed to DW1640 BSOB.

MUCH better than my dw1655!

Could still be improved. I have all the settings at default (SB off/on, WOPC enabled, Overspeed disabled) I burned at 2.4x don’t really care about speed; just interested in quality. Please give me suggestions. Also, what is “ala42’s enable SB”?

It is a registry patch that reenables CDspeed’s Solid Burn support for Benq drives which was enabled in 4.07 and is disabled in all newer versions.

I can enable solid burn in qsuite 2.1. Does this mean that if I have solid burn enabled in qsuite I must enable in CDSpeed to get accurate scans? Don’t understand. What is the point? :confused:

I see the download link inn zebadee’s sig, but how do you find out more information about this patch? Author’s website? :rolleyes:

All default settings/
Burned at 8x
A very typical burn for me.

I didn’t see any 1640 DL scans so I thought I’d post one. Except for those 2 spikes, not too bad.

I think it`s a good burn for cheap Media.
