BenQ DW1680/DW1800/DW1810/DW2000/DW2010 FastBurn Firmware
Here’s my first patch for the BenQ DW1680/DW1800/DW1810/DW2000 drive. FastBurn uses the higher burn RPM for 8x and 12x burning with both +R and -R media. Now the DW series can burn faster than the older model BenQ drives with 12x burning typically sub 6:30.
Please make sure you use the EEPROM Utility to make a backup of your EEPROM just in case.
What is FBL?
FBL is a less aggressive version of the FB firmware that burns a disc at 12x in about 6:40. This has proved to be a very good speed for 12x burning due to it’s improved quality and jitter.
What is ESB?
Enhanced Solid Burn uses a more sensitive Solid Burn, which increases in sensitivity towards the end of the burn, to ensure even better burn quality, while fast burning, overclocking or burning media at rated speeds.
Feel free to post scans here or in the drive’s normal scans and discussion thread. Please state that it was using FB/FBL firmware if you choose to use the normal scan thread.
