Nice burn but i think Jimmy wants to see CDRW’s

Come on rolling56 lighten-up, it was close. Just drop the “DV”, replace with “C”, remove the “+” and presto… You’ve got the scan. :wink: :wink:

Jimmy may have not noticed anyway. Lets edit our posts and leave the scan.

LOL - Regards

Here’s a scan of a CD-RW :eek:
OOPS it was to large to fit. It must have had more info on it than I thought. :wink:


#17

Very nice scan. What wonderful quality the BenQ DW1620 has when burning CD-RW media. I think I’ll buy 70 more DW1620 drives just for burning CD-RWs. LOL. :smiley:

I am using Verbatim DataLifePlus high speed CDRW’s that is made in Singapore. These CDRW’s burn fine in my old Plextor PX-W1210A and in my notebook’s Teac DW-224E and can be read just fine.

Now, my Benq DW1620 can erase and burn them just fine @ 10x. The thing is that only the Benq can read the CDRW. My Teac DW-224E and my brother’s LiteOn SOHC-5232K can’t read the CDRW burned by the Benq, they just see the CDRW as a blank. I erased the same disc in the Benq and burned the same data in the Teac. The same disc burned on the Teac can be read on all drives.

What is the reason for a CDRW burned with the Benq can only be read by the Benq? DVD-R’s and CDR’s burned with the Benq can be read on the LiteOn, Teac, and Benq.

Should I bring my Plextor out of retirement and use it to burn CDRW’s?

Several small issues with the CDRW.
Must erase/format a CDRW before writing it with the BenQ, otherwise. . .?

A non-BenQ issue is that one must use a compatible file system with CDRW.
It is possible to write any cdr file system onto a CDRW, but one must use a Rewritable-intended file system if the CDRW is to be recognized in other drives (as a CDRW). This can be a slight headache, but it is a recording software issue and does not relate to a specific optical drive. Closing the track/disc can also help ease compatibility issues.

I did a full erase with the Benq using Nero 6.6.0.6 and used Nero to burn an UBCD v3.2 ISO. I’ve erased and burned the same ISO on the same CDRW with the same results.

I always use CDRW’s for boot CD’s so I don’t have to waste CDR’s when a new version of the boot CD comes out.
