BenQ DW1655 firmware suggestions?

Postby stix on Mon Feb 23, 2015 9:19 pm

I picked up a nice used BenQ DW1655 awhile back, to tinker with - never had one before. I have crossflashed it to BenQ BCDB because it didn't have BenQ firmware on it. Anybody able to recommend a preferred firmware for it? I have access to BCDB, BCHB, and BCIB. Thanks.

Oh wow.. you're making me use brain cells I haven't used in years.

It really depends on what media you're going to use with it.

I'm happy to have a healthy effect on your brain.

I use primarily (for important stuff) some newer JVC CD-R: Taiyo Yuden(97m24s01f), Verbatim DVD+R: MCC 004, Verbatim DVD+R DL: MKM 001. For less important stuff, some older stock of FujiFilm brand CD-R: TY (97m24s01f), and some other odds and ends.

Don't know exactly what I'll end up using the DW1655 for, but wanted to flash it while I still have it in a system with native IDE interface.
May end up just using it for general purpose, or put it in an external USB enclosure.

If you're sticking with quality media, I'd just flash it with that latest version. That way you're getting the most up to date writing strategies.

Thanks for your help, Ian. I went with BCIB for now. That appears to be the latest available, at least at the Benq EU site.
