i’m just thinking about exchanging my Plextor 716A by a Benq DW1640.
The problem with the Plextor drive is the compatibility when running Linux. I can’t set the correct write speed on k3b and cannot format DVD-RWs with it.
Anyone has some experience running the DW1640 on Linux? Is it possible to set the write speed in k3b and format RWs?
And is it possible to set the SolidBurn feature and bitset it to DVD-ROM even when I boot to linux or are the settings reset after a reboot?
Is there some software to measure the quality of the burn for this drive? I’ve seen screenshots with Nero, does it support checking quality scans with the 1640?
And is there some software support for scans on linux? That would surely be the greatest The only feature that lets me keep my Plex drive is the Plextools software on windows.
Ok, so much for now, maybe someone can help.
