as soon as the temperature in my PC reaches some critical point, my DW1620 stops working. When the BenQ stops working and even looks strange in BIOS/Device Manager temperatures are 48Â°C CPU and 28Â°C Chipset. If I open the case and temp fall to 43/24 it works again. It appears to produce errors on the IDE as the name changes from ATAPI___2x16x4x16 or so to ATAPI and VG7P9 becomes VG|P| (with | = a strange block I do not know how to produce).
As I read some people have 40Â° mobo in the pcs and their BenQ work fine, I suppose it gotta be some problem with the BenQ? FYI an LG burner 3 5.25" slots below the BenQ works fine all the time.
I will double check by trying another IDE cable, but I guess it is a problem with the drive electronics… The upper part of my PC is not very hot btw, there is an own fan sucking the warm air out and again, the LG works fine all the time.
Maybe someone could compare to his values? Have to send the DW1620 back ASAP I guess
TIA and greetz!
