after being a long time reader of he benq forum, i decided to actually take the plunge and go for one.
I ordered it last week from Ebuyer and it arrived today.
firmware it came with was B7T9.
eager to use it, i installed it to my pc, everything went ok, tray opens closes etc, but no damn media is recognised with it!
have tried different brands of DVD-R, DVD+R, CDR and non of them get recognised, the green light flashes for a few secs then goes out.
now im using a nforce2 motherboard and when i went to the benq website i saw:
B7U9.zip 940 KB Version: B7U9 28-02-2005
- Improved the compatibility with nForce chipset.
- Fixed "no data found" issue of a CD-R disc which burnt by Nero and Simulation mode is selected media.
- Added support for MJC 16x DVD+R, Giga 16x DVD-R & Ritek 16x DVD-R F1 media.
great i thought! installed B7V9 thinking this has to work, but it didnt, same problem.
what you think my next course of action should be?
i did a search and read it maybe my PSU, but ive had pioneer 105, 107, 108, 109, NEC 3500 running with this same PSU and they have worked fine. so do you think it could be the PSU at fault?
i have nero 18.104.22.168 installed aswell but that doesnt recognize any disks either.
any help most appeciated!
