Dw1640 problem

#1

Hi,

Just got my 1640 from newegg, the firmware is bshb. I just burned a dvd, but my problem now is both my dvd/cdr combo and 1640 can’t read the disc. I am in the process of identifying the problems.
Just a quick question, the dvd/cdr combo I have can only read dvd-r single layer, if I set a dvd+r’s booktype to dvd-rom, can the disc be read in the combo drive?

btw the disc I used is ty02, just got them from bestbuy today. They have them for $10 for 25 pack

Thanks

Are they really TY media? Under what brand were they bought? also what is the serial number on the disc?


#3

they are legit. it is fuji film 8x, mij. disc label starts with tg00


#4

never mind, it seems the 1st disc is defected.

another question: when you do a quality scan in nero cd-dvd speed, how long will it generally take? b/c mine doesn’t seem to do anything (I waited for 20min+ using 8x).
btw dw1640 is inside an enclosure using prolific 3507 chipset. Is it even possible to do a quality scan for burners enclosed in an enclosure?
