[QUOTE=mik3;2168072]My son has a Dell Philips DVD8801 I have been testing with Nero Drive Speed. I flashed the firmware from 2D06 to AD21. No help in performance. AD21 is to support WindowsVista.
How do you know for sure it’s a Benq 1655?[/QUOTE]
It’s not a DW1655. It’s a DW1650.
What do you mean when you say “performance”? You can’t use the Philips DVD8801 with it’s native firmware to do quality testing or other BenQ tricks. Those things only work when running BenQ firmware. You’d have to cross-flash the drive and turn it into a DW1650, and then those other things would work.
