Does anyone have the BenQ version of this IO Magic drive? I do and for some reason the discs I burn won’t play. I keep getting a “Check Region Code” error message on my Aiwa DVD player. I got mine at the Staples BF sale. Sometimes it won’t even recognize its own burned disc.
I also have an Emprex 8x and an IO Magic 8x with 7 in 1 card reader (both BTC/Top G drives) and at least some of the discs burned will play (depending on which media I use). However, both those Top G drives don’t burn reliably at 8x like the BenQ.
From the drive sticker it says it was made in Malaysia in August of 2004. Model number is 1620.OC1 or something like that.
