I've been having a few problems with my Benq dvd writer in my Akasa external housing...
At first everything was fine...cd's and dvd's read and burnt properly...then a few days went by and dvd's would start to burn and then hang...then they would get half way and hang....
Now the drive will not read, rip or burn a dvd...it's ok when playing cd's, although in 'My Computer' the same drive and contents appears twice, even better with a dvd it appeared that I had 4 dvd drives with the same disc inserted???
What is happening, am I going crazy, is the drive faulty or is the housing giving up on me??? :a
I've ordered an external housing with the Prolific chipset but am wondering now if it was the drive all along and have I wasted even more money...it may have been cheaper to have binned the Benq first of all.
Wish I'd stuck with my Plextor now :sad:
