I am a new owner of a BenQ EW1621 (who just recently mailed in for his rebate - so now I can't return it - argh) and I am getting bad verifies after burning some DVDs. The only media I have tried is BenQ DVD+R with the code DAXON-AZ2 (95% sure about this, I will need to verify when I am at home).
I haven't yet burned enough discs to identify a consistent pattern. However, I've run into problems with the last two discs that I have burned, and both were at 2.4x - the minimum speed for this disc. Is there any way that the slow burning speed could be causing the problem? This sounds counterintuitive, no? Is my machine faulty, or is this just bad media?
I am noticing the bad sectors from bad verifies with DVD Decrypter, and confirmed by using Nero CD/DVD Speed's ScanDisc utility.
I upgraded the firmware upon purchase.
Any advice is appreciated.
