Firmware and driver question about dw 1640

vbimport

#1

I have a BenQ DW 1640. After going to the BenQ support page I have found that they do not have support for this product no longer.

I’m looking to see what is the latest and/or most reccomended firmware and driver. Also, where to get it?

I’m running Vista Home Premium and will be using Nero to burn.

Look at this thread. http://club.cdfreaks.com/f92/benq-dvd-writer-vanishing-192997/index119.html or here for firmware. http://benq-eu.com/support/downloads/downloads.cfm?product=750&page=downloads&dtype=B Enjoy.

The best firmware for the DW1640 is BSLB and it can be found here:

Other firmwares, up to the last version, which was BSRB, can be found here:

Download the QSuite program to check your firmware version and modify other settings for the drive:
