Hmm, I was wondering about the release date… and found out that zebadee already post this news a while ago in this thread: Post new firmware ANNOUNCEMENTS here.

Anyway, thanks yangxi for the media tables and comparison. :slight_smile:

What’s up everyone? This is my first post as I just registered based upon reading the info. on this new player. I’m a “noob” to this DVD writing stuff, however I bought my very first writer which happens to be the DQ60. I went to http://ginstar.com looking to find an Aopen drive because of online ratings. Dude said he didn’t have any & that the DQ60 is better. At $45.00 including tax I decided I would give it a try. I did a quick search when I returned home & immediately saw all the negative reports starting w/ newegg user reviews. One thing I realized was that after the latest firmware upgrades most people seemed satisfied- the problem is knowing about the firmware updates & being able to find them. To make a long story short, I used to links on here to find the latest upgrade & applied before ever using the writer. I made 3 successful burns lastnight using MAXELL DVD- R, 8x,4.7GB. I was able to write about 1000 mp3s onto the disc which I was able to access in the Benq drive but not in my Sony home entertainment DVD player. I primarily bout this drive as an upgrade from the DVD-Rom I had before. My needs are basically to archive mp3s since DVD can store up to 7 times more than CD- R. So far, so good! The one complaint so far is that Benq should make the firmware issue more widely known & accessible. Other than that, so far it’s good to go! Hopefully I won’t have to come back here in the future with any bad news… :slight_smile:

How do you make DQ60 and RPC I and Region Code ALL???

So far, so good!

The new firmware is a definite PLUS. The quality at the outer edges needs improvement, but the scans of the first 85% of SL media has been impressive. Dual Layer is working well and it seems to have DVD-ROM as the Book Type on Dual Layer. Does anyone know if that is inserted by the firmware?

I still would like to make this drive RPC I, because my counter of 5 has already decremented to 4 after ripping a title for test purposes.

So far, there is no software that will change the RPC code in the drive.

Really enjoying my little $45.00 (tax included) investment so far! :bow: That firmware upgrade is a must! I finally burned my first DVD that reads in my Sony stand alone player! Used DVD Decrypter to rip then shrunk & burned with DVD Shrink!

Is it true - this drive does not do quality scan? or it is not yet supported by DVDSpeed

Maybe on time to ask these guys for help. :slight_smile:

I know someone who got one of these branded as an AOpen 16x drive (it’s not even listed on their website) and tried to help them crossflash it from generic GRDC to BenQ’s MREC, but couldn’t find any solutions. Is there a way anyone knows to do this?

Burned my 7th DVD today! Still going strong! :wink:

From my searching, there seems to be no way of crossflashing to the benq firmware at the moment but crossflashing to the plextor firmware does work: refer to this post:http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=167678
