I’ve been using my DW1655 for a while now and the only problems I’ve seen so far are the slow DVD+DL burns. (when is BenQ going to release another firmware update to fix this problem?)
Anyway I’ve written about 10 or 12 regular CD’s and had no problems at all, but today I stuck in a Memorex CD-RW 12x Rewitable and I ran into a bunch of problems. The first problem was the drive wouldn’t erase the contents on the disc using either Nero, ImageBurn or DVDinfo Pro 5.45. It would start to do it and then just error out. The second problem came when I put in a blank and went to write an image in Nero and the write speed came up as 12x 24x 32x and 48x. Well I’m sorry but you aren’t going to write a CD-RW at 48x. I did try at 12x and it failed as well.
Now I know the first thing you will say is it’s Nero. (god I know I would) BUT I took the CD-RW with the contents of it and put it in my Pionner 108 and I had no problems erasing it and when it came time to write the image it showed up as just a 12x rewritable and it wrote fine in the 108 so that can only leave me with the conclusion that there must be problems with REWRITABLE CDRW’S and the BenQ DW1655.
Has anyone else with the drive tried to erase or write to CD-RW’s? and how were your results?
