I’ve been using my BenQ 1640 drive for a while now and loving it. After trying BSMB firmware, I decided to go back to the BEFB firmware as I found it much better to deal with other programs running on the computer while a record was in progress.
I just burned a Verbatim DL disc at 4x with the drive and then ran some scans on it. They were shockingly bad. (see the first attached image)
I then tried the scan the disc on my other DVD writer, a Lite-On SOHW-832S. It was so completely different. (see the second attached image)
I’ve seen where scans are different between burners, but they seem really off. Has anyone seen that before?
Could something have happened to the drive?
