The Hp 640i used to detect and burn these Tye 8x -R’s and 16x -R’s just fine. Now it doesn’t. I’m using the same spindle of Ty 8x-R’s and my other drive, a Benq 1620, usually has no problems with anything but once in a while it won’t detect these discs now either. When I eject and re-insert then the BenQ is fine but even this is newly developed problem
I cross-flashed the Hp to Benq firmware (B7 V9 first, then onto B7W9) but this made no difference. (The problem started while still using the HP firmware)
The problem just cropped up after an update to anyDVD was installed so I contacted them and they said it can’t be because of that. My tye’s are genuine so that’s also not the culprit.
The Hp 640i drive will still detect and burn inferior discs such as my verbatim DVD+Rw’s and Fuji Dual Layer +R’s that are really Ricoh discs, it has no problems with my Ty CD-r’s or Verbatim litecribe CD-r’s either. It just stopped being able to detect the 8x -r Tye’s for some reason.
I’ve never had a problem with the lightscribe capabilities of the drive and neither Nero 6.0, DVD Identifier, or Clone DVD & AnyDVD will detect these Taiyo discs in this drive anymore when they all used to do so.
I would appreciate any help suggestions with this.
Thanx in advance,
