I’m looking to replace my BTC 1016IM, just because I am having problems bitsetting with it, and I need to be able to count on my burner to put DVD-ROM as the Book Type on my DVD+R DL’s.
So, I’m looking at either the BenQ DW1650 or 1655. Would either one of these be a good choice? I’m leaning towards the 1655, because the Lightscribe feature has always intrigued me, and I’ve never had one. I probably wouldn’t use it much, but I think I’d end up being sorry if I didn’t get it.
My main concern is the bitsetting, or “Book Type”, whatever you want to call it. Are these the kind of drives that you can set the default book type, and never have to do it again? And is it easy to do, like could I just use that option in DVDDecrypter for BenQ in the Book Type option area?
Thanks for any responses…I want to get this sorted out so I can order the drive and get it on the way…I have a huge project of transfering old vhs home movies to DVD, and I want to get started right away.
