As it happens, I just swapped the BenQ 1640 to slave and liteon 52327s to master, same problem
Seems like BenQ have made a drive that’s incompatible with arguably the greatest cdrw drive.
Not a wise move to leave this unfixed BenQ! (if they read these forums at all).
EDIT: Also, are there any people that own both the BenQ DW1640 and the Lite-ON LTR52327s on the same ide channel that are running problem free?
I should probably mention my system specs just in case anything else affects this:
A64 winchester 3200+
1gig samsung pc3200 (2x512mb)
MSI K8n neo2 (nforce3 based)
Audiotrak prodigy 7.1 sound card
Compro DVB-T300 (freeview + analogue tv card)
Primary ide onboard channel:
- Samsung P80 160gig PATA
- Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 8 40gig PATA
Secondary ide onboard channel:
- BenQ DW1640 DVDRW drive
- Liteon LTR52327s CDRW drive
