[qanda]This thread is about the BenQ DW1655. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello All,
I haven't been in the forum for a couple of years now mainly because of the error free operation of my BenQ DW1655.
However, a couple of months ago every time I put a blank DVD +RW into the drive it would eject it. It would continue to do this a few times before finally accepting the media. I thought the drive was just being picky, although it would erase and burn these discs without a problem. This was using firmware BCIB.
Today the drive will not erase any of my DVD +RW media. I've tried in a few burning programs and they all report "this disc is not rewritable etc...".
I tried downgrading the firmware to BCGB and clearing the EEPROM using Qsuite but the problem persists. I've also tried brand new DVD +RW discs.
Can you think of anything else to try or does it look like the drive is on its way out, which would be a shame because this is one of my favourite drives and its not quite two years old yet.
