[qanda]This thread is about the BenQ EW164B. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I am now a proud owner of a BenQ/Nexperia drive… Crossflashed a Sony DRX-810UL external drive to a BenQ DVD DD EW164B, with the added bonus of having a firewire port (which the EW164B doesn’t have).
The question now is… what are the forum’s standard settings for scanning with BenQ/Nexperia drives? Through exploration I’ve found a myriad of features, and nothing makes sense - although I’ve had experience using MediaTek scanners…
So for the Disc Quality section (and Advanced tab), what is accepted/standard in the following options?
[li] Scanning speed (4x or 8x? Does high-speed scanning provide reliable results?)[/li][li] Scanning method (CAV/P-CAV/CLV?) - Does just the “8x” option correspond to CAV?[/li][li] ECC (8/1ECC - which provides a sufficient scan? Any impact on scanning speed?)[/li][/ul]
And when does Adv. Disc Quality scanning come into play? Should I prioritize this over regular DQ scanning? Advantages/disadvantages?
I know most of this has been asked already, but since scanning is more of an “art” than a “science” due to the variances in results, and I’ve only had this drive for about 12 hours (), I’m ecstatic about knowing the intricacies and possibilities of an external DW1640 as a scanning drive.
Links or personal views are appreciated… Thanks!
