My good old 8x BenQ 800@822 drive kicked the bucket.
Everything seems like it is functioning, but I stick a disk in and it doesn’t think there is anything in there. When burning from Nero I put a blank DVD+R in and it keeps saying to insert a disk. Tried it in another computer with the same results.
So I’m shopping for a new drive. I got the 8x BenQ because at the time it was a very reliable drive and gave very nice burns.
I though I read a while back that as a result of the Lite-On take over of BenQ’s optical drives that quality may have dropped.
Is that still the case?
If you were to buy a new drive would it still be a BenQ? If so what model?
