I’ve owned this BenQ DW1640 for a few days now, but have come across a problem that I haven’t been able to solve.
When burning a dvd or doing a transfer rate test, the curve is not smooth after ~15x. I originally thought this was an ide cable or an Anydvd problem. After fixing it by disabling anydvd, it has returned.
The problem has since returned, and after trying many different ide cables, I haven’t been able to fix it. I have ensured anydvd is switched off, udma mode 2 is on. The BenQ is master to a liteon 52327s cdrw
I’ve tried 2 rounded ata133 80wire cables (from ebuyer), an 80wire flat ide cable, a 40wire flat ide cable, and an MSI rounded ata133 80wire cable (was using on my hds) I got with my motherboard.
Tried different discs, and known discs that have burnt with good quality.
All produce the samish results:
