Bought this puppy 4 days ago, just installed it and upgraded it to FW BCDB.
Installed QSuite 2.1 and the only thing that I have done is test some of my Qpro 16X +R disks with QScan, they didn’t show any problems.
I was going to test my DVD+RW 4X disks (sold as BenQ by Norwaydisc.no. They are Daxon I guess, ID: Philips 041). All these are recorded previously without any problem by my BenQ DW1620 (that I don’t own anymore). I was very surprised when I inserted the first +RW, the drive did not even try to read it but spit it out immediately. This was repeated with the next 3 +RW that I tried, all were ejected immediately after insertion.
I have already quick erased one with the Toshiba burner in my laptop and the drive still refuses to accept them.
The 1655 is reading OK my Rocoh 4X DVD+RWs.
What is happening here? How can I make it work with my BenQ +RW disks? It is ironic, being the drive BenQ you expect it to work ok with BenQ disk no?
Thanks a lot.
EDIT: Full erasing the disks in the laptop (Toshiba drive) makes them usable on the DW-1655, but each disk takes 30 MINS to erase in the laptop’s drive! Is there not another solution? Thanks.
