I’ve had this drive for 6 months or so. Seemed to be working fine… newest firmware available was installed when I purchased, there’s no newer one out yet.
I bought this huge spindle of 100 DVD+Rs (BenQ brand conincidentally).
Now that I’m halfway through, the weirdest thing happens: if I put a blank in the drive, all of a sudden Windows explorer will report the drive as a “CD-ROM Drive” when moments ago it was a “DVD-RW Drive”.
If I try to burn one of these disks with nero, it reports as fine and then is unreadable by any DVD Drive, itself included.
I tried to burn a DVD rewritable disk and it works fine, but any of the BenQ DVD+R disks do the same thing.
I’ve even tried re-flashing the newest firmware, but no dice.
Does anyone have the faintest idea what is happening?
Thanks for your time & expertise!
