Configuration and Aspi tabs are also informative.
So far nothing wrong afaik. Did YOU flash the RPC1 firmware ?

Then burn and post the scans here.


#6

Checking drives ability with 4x (max.) burn speed media won’t tell you much. :wink:

What was the initially promblem for RMA.


#7

The initial problems were my burns. I was getting 0/100 for my burns. I called up BenQ and brought my drive down for a check. They gave me a new one. I flashed to RPC 1 alreadi.

pinto2 : what if i had alreadi used MCSE ? ( anyway i havent )

A lot depends on your media. I know my BenQ does not like RICOHJPNW11 at all so I don’t use it on this drive even though it is very good on other drives.

What media is giving you trouble? Post a scan of this media so we can see where you are getting into trouble. Does the disc play?

Looks like a very good burn to me especially for a DVDRW.

Remember PI errors can have a maximum of 280

And PI Failures can have maximum 8 to be within standard, It doesnt matter if PI failures hit higher than 8 in single spikes.

You dont want any PO failures for a good disc.

That is much better than I get with W11. Keep what you have, it is working like a charm. Also, for future referrence, scan with the BenQ at 8X. It is more reliable and considered the standard here.

Here’s my scan with RICOHJPNW11. Yours is better, keep it.

PS1: You can attach multiple images in one post.

PS2: Yes as Quakester2000 said, there’s one more parameter that needs to be consider as a good burn: POF=0, in addition to PIE max=280, Jitter max = 12%, and PIF max = 16 (8ECC).


#16

Quakester2000 : I do not understand this point. Are you referring to the average value under PI Errors ?


#17

Hey zevia what im using with your is the same ! Firmware, W11 … all the same. Thanks a lot for the help … im really grateful. Anyway tt RW cost me $4 today … went down to get it to test my writer …

Issit the same price over at US ?


#18

Hey guys this is my burn before i RMA-ed my writer … check it out man …


#19

Can i learn how to read the CD-DVD scan ? What values muz i look out for ?


#20

Another question … when im able to choose the booktyping … muz i choose Automatic or DVD-ROM for it to be read on a DVD player ? I just placed the RW in my DVD player but it is not able to read. Why ? Supposing i would like to burn all to watchable format on the player should i booktype to DVD-ROM ?
