I’ve had this BenQ 1640 Burner for some 3 or 4 months now and it’s been great buning Single Layer Media from Various Manufacturers. (I typically use DVD+Rs and it’s got BSOB frimware.) I really got the 1640 to suppliment my Plextor PX-708A, as it’s an 8X burner and I wanted something to do 16X and Dual Layer disks after a disaster with a now returned Plextor PX-716A.
Anyway, I finally got around to trying some Dual Layer Media and picked up 3 Fuji Disks (really RICHOJPN D00) and was backing up a friends King Kong disk. I used AnyDVD & CloneDVD (quite recent versions on my 2.8 GHz P3 with a Gig of RAM - so the box is adequate. QSuite is installed but left to Default settings.)
I first created an ISO and then burned it at maximum with CloneDVD.(The Plextor was the reader.) It seems to play okay in my PC (I haven’t watched all of it -only a few minutes as I’m really into testing the process now rather than watching the movie.) but Nero CD-DVD Speed 4.11 will not even complete a Quality Scan of the disk.
So I mounted the ISO (using Alcohol’s Virtual Drive as I gave back the disk.), and created the second DVD by making DVD Files with CloneDVD and later used “Write Existing Data” after updating to latest Clone & Any DVD versions. Nero CD-DVD Speed will now read the disk but the Quality is Zero . (Take a look below)
Do you have any Idea what’s up before I make coaster number 3? Thanks for the assist.
