I'm thinking of buying the IO Magic rebadge of the Benq 1620a. Can you tell me whether I can run burn quality tests using Nero CD-DVD Speed with the "native" IO Magic firmware? Thanks much.
I don't think you can use it, most IO Magic drives have an old firmware. Benq1620 could use the cd\dvd tool after flashing the (G) or B7M9 firmware I believe. Or you have to crossflash the drive with the Benq firmware.
My IO Magic came with G7C9 and I can confirm that it will NOT report Quality. However, I flashed to B7P9 and it is great...even now reports as a Real Live BenQ 1620.
It will work with G7P9 also.
