Check out this benq scan

#1

This one was read by a benq 1620 but written with a different drive. I burned it with my laptop. It actually plays on my standalone dvd player with no problems. How can this be?


#2

lol Got me man. What brand of burner and f/w was it recorded with?


#3

TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-L532A was what it was burned on. Dont remember the firmware off the top of my head. But its weird that it will play on the home dvd player with a scan like that. Ive had 5 dvds that looked like that or worse but still play.


#4

I’ve seen worse that play fine in my dvd players.


#5

actually its the pif that matters more then pie and the pif is well with in spec other then one high spike. Also the jitter is under 15% so its in good range too.


#6

Basically then nero cd/dvd speed isnt worth the time to scan if you can have disks this bad and they still play.


#7

Its more a tool to tell which disc you are getting better results with.


#8

Scanning the disc at 1x would provide much more useful info, since that’s the speed it’s getting read at.


#9

well its ritek…benQ drives hates ritek…


#10

Yeah, my liteon 1633 burns far better any ritek then my benq !!!


#11

BenQ hates Ritek? Since when? I can burn RicohJPNR01’s with very pretty results - one of the best medias I have found for the BenQ actually outside of the 4x DVD+R Taiyo Yuden’s.


#12

I didnt burn the riteks with the benq. I just read it.


#13

Benq hates Ritek G04 at least, as you can see in some scans that were posted in this forum. I´ve posted one or two and they were nearly the better ones. I would always recommend to keep far from this media :frowning:


#14

Not sure but arent PO Failures a really bad thing? Never had any of them at all.
Jitter average >10% appears quite high to me, too.

What drive did you write that DVD-R with?


#15

I didnt write this with the benq 1620. I wrote it with TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-L532A. It was only read on the benq.


#16

I have used ritek G04 alot of times with my benq and never had any problems. The cd/dvd score was always around 95%. This scan that I posted was only read with the benq not written with it.


#17

From my experiences (of 9 days!) with TS-H552B, I would just recommend you to write another of those DVD-Rs with the BenQ - or take one you burned with it - and scan again … and think of making copies of discs with that high POF rates with the BenQ.

I also have some DVD-R (Verbatim) I wrote with the H552B and my laptop had problems reading them - scans with the BenQ looked better than your scan, but bad anyway. I think the writing quality of those Toshiba/Samsung drives is “not really good” … at least.

Finding out about that and making better burns in the future surely was what you bought the BenQ for?


#18

I normally dont write with my laptop but did cause i was out of town and away from my lovely benq writer. The benq loves my ritek g04 and almost any other disk i throw at it. The laptop wrote some disks when i first got it and they scanned great. I think it was some software that might have conflicted with the burner. Do you know where I might be able to update the firmware for my drive? Ive searched and searched but cant find any anywhere. Thanks in advance.

Firmware in laptop drives is a complicated topic afaik - my lappy only has a DVD-ROM drive from Toshiba and Toshiba offers no updates to OEM (its an Asus laptop) drives. I finally found 1717 fw (drive had 1709 before) on http://firmware.fr.st/, flashed the drive and everything is ok.

I am pretty sure you will be able to find there what you need, if it exists. Be sure to read the instructions for that particular drive (example: for my laps 1709 fw I had to use another 17xx fw, but not a 19xx or so fw).
