I purchased a BenQ 8x4x12 and slapped it into my Windows 2000 machine. I was able to burn a DVD-R perfectly fine with WinDVD Creator.
Although when I attempted to burn a plain CD-R, Nero wouldn’t recognize the drive. I tried Discjuggler also with no detection.
The drive is running Firmware version B3BC. When I bought the drive, it had no box. I believe it’s the DW800a model. I tried to do some firmware upgrades to no avail. Anyone have any suggestions?
