Hi everyone, nice forum you have here. I have been a reader for a couple weeks now, and after much positive comments about the benq 822 burner i decided to get one.
So after i installed the drive, hooked up the drive as the lone master drive on the secondary ide with the IDE cable that was included, i flash the firmware to B3IC, and started burning.
The first burn was a backup copy of Splinter cell for ps2 from an image. worked perfectly using ridata 4x dvd-r
however, i have now burned about 10 consecutive coasters, some finished the burn but the burn speed sometimes dropped down to 1 (supposed to be 4x), and some failed the burn procedure (buffer under-run error)
I have tried using other dvd-r media such as prodisc, smartbuy, ultran and princo but still nothing worked.
I currently am using NERO 6.3.17, padus discjuggler and alcohol 120 (1.9.2).
Is there anything i am missing? please advice… I used the drive to burn cd-rs and the quality and speed was excellent, so i am hoping its not the burner that needs to be replaced.
sorry for the long post, hope someone can help me out. thanks
