I tried burning a slipstreamed XP boot CD and also an audio CD and both stopped during the burn process at 25% with a "Burn Failure".
I'm using Nero 188.8.131.52 and have had no problems burning DVDs with the 1650.
I've also used a Pioneer 106 to burn hundreds of DVDs and CDs using the exact same Nero with no problems whatsoever.
CDs used are Fuji TY. Anyone with a BenQ 1650 have or had this particular problem? Do I have a faulty 1650?
