Maybe another dead BenQ :(

#1

went to burn a disc today and 1st it took like 30 seconds to see that the disc was inside and then the disc started to burn then stopped and gave me write error :sad:

now the drive won’t even read dvds or cds :Z

when i enter a blank disc it won’t even read it now.
i have tried 3 kinds of discs, verbatim, fujifilm, tdk

it will flicker the green light several times and then stop :confused:

i have burned atleast 200 dvds with this drive and have had great results :bow:
so it’s not like i have been having problems with it.

anyway think it’s dead :confused:


#2

Maybe it’s dead


#3

hhhhmmmmm maybe


#4

any ideas before i call and have it returned?

it’s only 2 months old.


#5

well i went ahead and sent it back to newegg :confused:

hopefully i’ll have better luck next time.


#6

Same way mine acted when it went dead.


#7

how long did you have yourse?

is your replacement doing ok?

Unfortunately this seems to happen a lot to new BenQs. It looks like this is part of the risk you take to own a BenQ. I factored the 10% chance I would have to pay shipping into the cost of the drive.

yeah it’s also a chance i will take again.

as i said i burned atleast 200 dvds all great scans :slight_smile:

maybe i’ll break the next one in slower.

My 1st one lasted 6 mths. http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=944122&postcount=49 I just got my 2nd one and haven’t burned 1 disc yet. New one was made in Malaysia Oct 2004. My 1st one was made in China Oct 2004. Will put it to the test soon :wink:

the one i am sending back is also a Malaysia Oct 2004

Well looks like it doesn’t matter where they are made. I still ordered me another. I got good use out of mine. Good luck on your replacement.
