This was posted by doorqyu over at CDFreaks.com forum. On BenQ Korea's website, you can d/l the latest offical firmware from BenQ (B7S9). Like the B7P9, it will support 4X DL & will improve the writing strategy for [AN31] DVD-R media. Included in the zip file is an up-to-date media list for both DVD-R/DVD+R/DVD+R DL. So far, the new firmware seems to be doing better than B7S9.
I am still waiting on the tool to disable wopc.
the firmware was said to be geared for the chineese market and low quality media. personaly I would like to see the b7n9 firmware that was mentioned over at cdfreaks. unffortunately there is yet no way to extract the cvt file from the benq drives.
this firmware is from and out of the box benq 1620 pro.

yea me too but it was said to be targeted to the hong kong area because they sell alot of lower quality media, and b7s9 is suppose to improve the burning on lower quality media not much else was said about other improvements.
some have said they like b7p9 better but with the media i use i have not seen any difference.
