CD DVD Speed and Benq 1640 Problem?

Postby dilly on Tue Dec 20, 2005 11:02 pm

Anyone have a jagged read speed line when using CD DVD Speed to test disc quality?

Note: Discs are Verbatim DVD+R 4x (MCC 002) burnt at 8x with WOPC on, Overspeed Activated and SolidBurn Activated for Unknown Media. This is the first burn with the new BSNB firmware.

Everything seems fine but I've always had a straight read speed line.

I've had them before.... but I don't know what causes them, or why they only happen every RARE occasion for me.

Its a firmware bug and its bad for the drive but it only shows up durning a quality scan, discussed on cdfreaks fourm. I'm using BSMB, some prefer BSLB. The only bug that BSMB has is with the Qscan feature in Qsuite, personally I think Qscan is useless.

Appears to happen only with the BSNB and BEGB firmwares, from what I have read.

It is one of the reasons that most people still seem to be sticking with the BSLB and BEFB firmwares.

I had the SAME exact scan of a DVD+R DL last night after I decided to upgrade to BSOB. It did not affect a DVD+R I burned last night though. Oh well, here's hoping that BenQ is on that. What a odd bug...
