So, I’ve been using NEC 3540A to make copies of my DVD’s, mostly for kids use. I’ve used NEC for about 2 years now and befor that I had TDK unit. Pretty much ever since I started using NEC I started having some small issues, like a movie would skip few seconds here and there, or just freeze for a little bit. It used to be manageable, but lately any copy I make has an issue, and they seemed to have increased to the way of being just too annoying. I only tried using different DVD medias to see if there is any difference, but have not gotten any improvements using either TDK, or Philips, or Sony media. started looking on this forum for a replacement burner recommendations. As it stands, my kids PC had a Benq DD DW1650, and since people seem to highly recommend this drive, I put it into my system and gave it a shot. I updated firmware to BCIC. At the same time I started using Nero CDSpeed tool as that seems to be used around here. Unfortunately, I seem to still have some issues. The media I tried with Benq so far are some Sony. I still seem to be getting freezes here and there.
Are there any specific media recommendations for the Benq 1650 ? I use DVD Decrypter for writing, and RipIt4Me for ripping. Occasionally using Nero.
Thanks for any help.
