General DVD-RW Questions -- Problems

Postby crea78 on Sun Dec 26, 2004 12:27 am

I just got a BenQ DW-1620 (stock firmware for now - B7C9) for Xmas and its installed in an ext. enclosure. I used a TDK 4x RICOHJPN-RO1 for Nero to "Create A Data Disc". The process went very well, and everything seemed to be going fine until I did the Nero "Disc Quality Scan." For some strange reason when I do the Disc Quality scan, I get a straight line instead of a curve. The speed NEVER goes above 1x and it seems there are ALOT of spikes which aren't typically normal.

This is my very first DVD-RW drive so I'm not too familiar with the technical side of things. My drive is set to Master and all the connections are hooked up correctly. Windows detects the drive without any problems, but the problem is only minor. However, I would like to see how well the discs perform in terms of quality. What are the causes for a straight line graph compared to a curved graph which is normal. Should I change some settings in Nero or even Windows to be able to fix this problem?

Any insights would be helpful.:)

I'm currently using 3.55, so could it be the old BenQ firmware which I will upgrade verily soon. I want to test the drive out before upgrading in case I may have to RMA it.
