I'm having a problem with my Benq burner and I hope i can hear some good suggestions here how to solve it.
Whenever I try to burn a DVD, and I always do the burning at 8X, it lasts 13-16 mins. This rarely happened before, it was capable of burning a DVD at 8X for app. 8 mins, but now, it takes much longer. Same thing happens when I try to burn the disc at 12X or 16X.
I have also tried flashing the drive with another fw, but it doesn't help. Also tried installing another version of Nero, same thing.
The BenQ configuration is: WOPC on, SB off/on, OS off (I have tried with SB on/on, OS on, but with no result).
The DVDs I've been burning were Verbatim MCC004 MBI made. I had no problem with these DVDs ever until now. The quality of the burns was actually excellent (see the attached image), but the burning speed...awful. You can see on the attached image that the speed drops and remains at 4X during the whole scan. I haven't yet tried burning other discs than this Verbatim, but I just can't believe that the problem is with every single disc. Btw, they are all from the same batch. I will buy some other dvd's tomorrow and try with them.
If it matters, my computer configuration is:
ASUS P5LD2 SE
Intel Pentium D 805 Dual Core 2.67MHz
WDC Caviar 150GB SATA-II
512MB DDR2 667 RAM
ASUS GeForce 7300GT 256MB
BenQ DW-1650 BCIC
