I'm a noob in this forum..anyways I have a 800W and a 1620. My 800 started acting up so yesterday I went to buy a 1620, its was OEM but I've flashed it to be recognized as a BenQ. Anyways, I've been trying all the discs I got at home yesterday and here are the results:
I can burn ISO okay on both DVD+ and - but whenever I try to burn a data disc, the drive doesn't recognize whatever I've burnt or it fails in leading out everytime..I can burn data onto a CDR but not on a DVD. What's the problem?
I use CloneDVD to backup my movies and it's fine..I can read it in the drive and also in the dvd-player but when I use Nero to burn Data dvds, it cannot be read anywhere...actually all drives recognize it as being blank or non-existent...
I've also noticed several threads mentioning that 1620 is not good for DVD-R media, is that why it's refusing my vakoss 8x DVD-? (when it successfully recognizes it, it burns at 2.4x only)...or should I just stick to the BenQ 8x DVD+R media, which burnt in CloneDVD at 12x?
btw..can someone teach me how to check disc quality and also the drivers and stuff? I have the nero program but everytime I try to make that 'image' of drive speeds, my winxp dies on me
thanks in advance!
