Just wondering if BenQ 162I ext burner has a problem burning to a R+ disc if the source is R-??? using the Nero 6 version that comes with the burner.
I have an edited family wedding that is on a dvd R- media and am trying to burn it to R+ which the tech support at BenQ in Irvine Ca. recommend. I have tried Maxell, Sony, TDK, Imation and Verbatim, BenQ R+.
All of which BenQ tech’s say have been tested and are the best to use for this burner.
My notebook is new and is a toshiba M50 - MX 5, there are no other burning softwares on this notebook and so I decided to install the Nero without the InCD, simply the burning CD, DVD software. There are no packets on the notebook.
I have had the burner since December and had no burner issues. In fact, this same R- edited family wedding disc I have burned backups on the same burner( 8 R+ discs ) ONLY with my older Toshiba Satellite 2410 with 1 Click DVD, 4 were Maxell and 4 Sony R+ discs. Gave them out to family members and they all work fine on their various models and vintages of dvd standalone players. ( I also use Slysofts Clone DVD and DVD Shrink with the R+ media and have no burner issues and that is with Any DVD with backups requiring that program and R+ source family dvd’s transferred from my mini dv camcorder.) I don’t understand why the R- source disc can’t be burned to any of my R+ media and neither does the Edit shop that I use with this Nero program and my new Toshiba notebook that I am trying out for the first time. Of course there is no help from toshiba as it is a software matter.
I wanted to have only the Nero software on this new notebook, however this problem in the process once I get to do a burn and insert the suggested R+ disc and click to start to have the burn start and the door of the burner flies open and an error message on the screen indicating that an R- disc is needed is really becoming frustrating.
I want Nero on the new notebook so that i can do data backups and i don’t want to have to keep
i phoned BenQ Tech support and they advised against using R- media as apparently it did not test well in their trials, however the tech had no solution to my problem.
Has anyone any ideas as to what the problem is
