I just built a new rig with a 2600K and an ASRock Fatal1ty One board, the only upside to this board was that it came with a PATA controller onboard, the rest of the board sucks big time. So I installed one of brand new Retail DW1640s that were in my closet since 2006 and this is the result.

Did you use the SIIG IDE controller Card for 4 devices. I sed that in my 980X build and it works great.

No, oh is that nice.I should order one. Never had a chance to install the drivers on mine. I RMA’d the Mobo last week new one Tuesday. It would start to boot up shut down and then boot up all the way,from the day I first started the system. First I thought my GPU was too OC’d but that was not it.

Had some old 4x MIJ DVD-R around and it seemed the 1640 is still able to burn them nicely.

I found several old discs I had in some cd sleeves this one being one of them. It’s been a while but did I miss something with these external BenQ units and quality scan tests?

The Lite-On had no issue scanning the disc, DVDInfoPro took several re-tries before it scanned the entire disc using the BenQ, but CD-Speed kept giving me the error bellow no matter what I did.’

Note: I did eject the disc several times, rebooted the machine etc.

Not a bad burn for a Ritek, also forgot to mention there were some scuffs on the disc from storage. Would explain the spike.
