I’ve been browsing the forum plus other sites as well for the past week and decided to hunt down the BenQ 1650. After an insane drive around So Cal I found me one and used the BQflasher to flash the Norwood Micro to a BenQ 1650. My problem is that I’ve a big batch of CMC MAG dvd+r (imation brand) and Sony D21 dvd+r (GQ) and can’t figure out which firmware to use. I’ve tried the BCIC firmware but kept getting 95% Quality scans and lower for the Sony D21 and BCIC just won’t burn the CMC MAGs. I then reverted back to BCDC and was getting 95-97 Quality scans for abit, but now it seemed to have leveled off at 96%. Also, BCDC won’t burn the CMC MAGs as well. I’ve been jumping back and forth between the BCDC and BCIC firmwares because they seem to be the most popular, however, I’m just not satisfied with the 95-97% quality scans after seeing people get 98+ quality scans (envious).
Can anyone please help me out with some “experienced” suggestions? My PIE averages around 12 for BCIC and 6 for BCDC, PIF averages 1, max 10 for BCIC and average .05, max 8 for BCDC. Jitters are around 12 on the BCDC and under 10 for the BCIC. I have SB on, WOPC On, and overspeed off. So far all my CMC MAGs have been coasters, but the GQs are running strong.
I know it really depends on the media, however, I got over 200+ sony d21s and 300+ CMC MAGs and really don’t want to dish out mula on new media until these are gone. Also, I’m a bit afraid of crossflashing it to a 1655, but if the BCIB firmware is really hotstuff, then I will do for the sake of the perfect burn.
Thanks for the help.
