I just got a NU Technology (Rebadged 1620) from NewEgg and flashed it to B7P9
firmware. I’ve also got a NEC 3500A drive as well. I’m somewhat disappointed in the lack of overspeeded media compared to the NEC. Example Ricoh 2.4X can only be written at rated speed as well as Prodisc S03 4x. In my NEC using stock firmware, I can write the Ricoh 2.4x at 4x and the Prodisc S03’s at 8x. Some media (I have a big variety) can’t be written at all by the BenQ.
Also have one question concerning the record LED. Does it flash red while recording normally, or do I have a problem? It’s set as Master onit’s own IDE channel and it’s in DMA mode in the device manager.
