Here’s a new firmware from BenQ for DW1640 which enable 4X DVD-R DL Capability…
I knew they would introduce DVD-DL!
Looks like Plextor could really be OEMing the BenQ DW 1640.
I wonder if they will release a version for the 1625?
BSHB drops support for several +R media. These are gone now:
CMC MAG F01-000 8x,4x MAXELL 001-000 8x,4x MCC 002-000 8x,4x RICOHJPN R01-002 8x,4x RITEK M02-001 8x,4x RITEK R02-001 8x,4x SONY D01-000 8x,4x TDK 001-000 8x,4x YUDEN000 T01-001 12x,8x,4x
hmm… this discs are still available… not a very wise decision to remove the support.
- Fully support QSuite v1.0.
- Improve the compatibility with CD-R media.
- Support DVD-R DL media recording.
I think the Official release is (oddly) quite different. ala42 you might want to check it again.
They are identical.
Yeah… I realised I made a mistake… sorry about that
are they going to add -DL for the old 1620 writer too?
Dun think so the drive is almost dead i guess.Now more on 1640.
Benq really seem to have the consumer first and foremost, if someone is looking for a company who offers amazing product life through regular updates then this is the one …
Take Other comapnies they make a new drive for each minor improvement in speed and formats…they need to look at the way in which Benq treats its consumers…
