Ok, I have a 1620 PRO OEM (Generic)
I go to the benQ.com driver/firmware page, and there is "NO Firmware" listed for the PRO. Am I screwed?
I have no idea what the difference is between the standard 1620, and the pro, and I think the only difference between the BenQ 1620 Pro, and the Generic 1620 Pro that I have, is that there is no label on the front of the drive stating "BenQ".
So I went to the standard 1620 firmware/driver page at the Benq site: (non-Pro)
and they show .exe files for the firmware, B7K9 for the 1620, and a different firmware shown for generic drives similar to mine. G7K9
and now for my questions:
1.)A) Is there any tool or utility I can use to save a copy of the current firmware on the drive? (OEM), windows based tool would be nice.
B) I found this link, http://dvdpro.club.st/firmware/BENQ_FW.htm
will Qscan do this? good source for firmware?
2.) Can I use the BXXX series firmware on my generic drive?
3.) I use DVD -R for backing up movies, and making them readable for my home player, so assuming it would work for this drive, would the B7T9 be the best firmware for my usage?
4.) Any good utilities for this drive you would recommend, and would be beneficial.
I have downloaded book type management, and "BenQ QVideo 2.0 Software Utility" from BenQ, but I doubt I really need either of them. Any good?
Thanks in advance for any insight, I appreciate it!
Edit:: Well I just dld'd winDWflash.exe, and it shows the drive and B7S9 as the firmware which seems readily downloadable.
So I guess that answers almost all my questions.
Thanks for any insight on the others!
