Thanks for responding LiteOnGuy
[qoute] what symptoms did you see when your drive went dead after the flash to K.UC? [/quote]
When I started the upgrade(K.SC -> K.UC) The message came up saying it was matching the ckeck sum(or somthing to that effect). The light on my drive lit up red.Then a message came up saying waiting for drive to respond. At that point the red light went out. Moments later the complete message popped up. It was after this point that my drive would not respond. I couldn't eject(either through using the button or by a comand through a program). Funny thing, info tool said I had the right firmware installed and had the MT.Rainier box checked. Couldn't use the drive at all
do you hear a slight "grinding" sound when your drive searches for a disc, such as when you close the tray without a disc in it?
I can hear a slight noise(not sure if it's a grinding noise)but i don't think it's any different then before. Besides, from the bad reviews i have read about BenQ, as far as quality goes, i'm surprised it's not sqreeching and smoking
I just got a couple questions about Mt.Rainier.
1. Is there supposed to be some kind of message or graph telling you how far along the format process is going? ie. when it finishes?
2. I'm assuming that you can start writing to the disk soon after the formatting starts. Is it normal for transfers of files to go real slow during this process? i.e 10meg file taking almost 10mins to transfer over.
3. Is there a way to ajust the burning speed while using packet writing software like incd? or does it just pick a speed automaticly? The reason I ask that is bacause even after the formatting is done my transfers are still really slow. 400megs of files took 45mins to complete using verbatim 12x cdrw. I had faster speeds before without Mt.Rainier formatting(even including the 20min format time).
Thanks for your time.
