Last night I was burning on totally crappy 4X media (Princo). This media is so bad, that my old Pioneer 105 would typically error out with a power calibration error before even trying to burn them. So, I thought I’d give them a try in the BenQ before I tossed them. The first one I burnt worked (in CD Speed, disc create) and the quality was what I’d expect from such a crappy brand, but the BenQ performed where others failed! Anyway, last night I was trying to burn another of these discs and the BenQ started recording and started blinking away (red light, meaning recording) but after it reached 15% the progress in Nero stopped and it never showed any progress again, yet the red light kept blinking away. After 17 minutes of this I decided to try to restart, turn-off, everything (red light still blinking). I even tried to eject the disc (no dice, red light still blinking). I finally HAD to hold the 'ol power button for 10 seconds and de-juice the whole box (ouch!, ahhh, the red light stopped).
Anyway, has anyone else had their BenQ go into la-la land???
