Hi all, just got my new replacement today due to last DW1650 unable to read anything after 4 month of use. However, the new one came with different problem, it only able to burn at 2.4 max with my CMC MAG-E01-00. The same media (same batch) burn at 8x without any problem using my previous one and works like charm with my brother’s liteon. The new one came with BCDC fw and just tried the new BCIC fw but still the same. DMA is fine, done with controller uninstall -> reboot, also DMA option is set to auto in BIOS. What’s the problem? Flash to different firmware doesn’t help and I thought BCDC is a good firmware for DW1650.?? FYI, my MB is Nvidia nForce3 250.
