BenQ DW1655 prob w/ dual layer


I am trying to burn with dual layer disks for the first time. When I insert the disk(s) the drive is seeing them as standard CD’s instead of dual layer DVD’s. I am using Nero, which allows me to select DVD 9, which I assume is DL. I get an error when it tries to burn and I am assuming the error is due to the drive not seeing the media as DL.

The media is Ridata DVD-R DL 8.5GB 4X

Also, I upgraded to the latest official firmware but it made no difference.

Thanks for any help you can provide.


What is the make and model of your DVD Burner?

Verbatim is the prefered DVD+R DL media…


BenQ DW1655.

I will get the Verbatim media next time, thanks for the tip. Do you have any suggestions to make the Ridata media work?

The error is most likely due to low quality media. Verbatim is a good choice.

If you want to use the rest of your Ritek DVD-R DL 4x, I would suggest to update your DW1655 firmware as later firmwares have some fixs for DL media. What is your current firmware? Can you post Nero log to show the burn errors.
