Postby chubby on Mon Dec 26, 2005 7:30 am

i just got a BenQ DW1640, do i need to update the firmware for this? os: winxp sp2.

has anyone tried burning HP 8xdvd +R on this drive, whats the result?

lastly, what version of Nero covers all functions from buring data cds to dvds, files, video,audio, etc etc. the bundled nero express with the package aint complete.

and i also tried buring .avi files using a generic dvd 4x and it didnt go well #-o

im new on this, any suggestions/help will be appreciated. tnx.
oh and i posted this here cuz theres no dvd drive section. is it ok here, modz?

Nero Express 6 does what you want. it includes NeroVision express which is used for burning Video. if you want to make a DVD from .avi files you need to use NeroVision Express.

umm im kinda new to it. you mean format the .avi files to video files for playing in the dvd player? or just burn in a lot of .avi in the dvd, how do you do this, write data? same as cds?

oh another thing, i tried playing a movie directly from the drive, in: media player 10 (with latest codecs) only the audio comes out, in divx(latest codecs) only the video comes out. toink! are there other codec packs that can support mp10 or that support everthing so i wont have to install divx or other things anymore.? like a all in one package type. suggestions.

tnx.

if you have .avi files and you want to burn a "video-DVD" that will play in a DVD player, you need to use NeroVision program to create the DVD.

i'm no expert, can't help you on the other stuff.

Update firmware to BSMB,I(and others) do not recommend BSNB because there are too many problems with it:
