Postby squirreld on Thu Jan 12, 2006 9:10 pm

I just got the new DW1655 BENQ and the wirte speed is grayed out and I see 4x behidn it.
these are 4x TY DVD-R's.
Why cant I select a slower speed like 2x?
I throw in TDK and sony 4X dvd and they gives me 2x option.

maybe it's a firmware issue.

IIRC, Benqs can't write to DVD-R discs at speeds <4X, except 2.4X in some cases.

Avaialbe write speeds is controlled by the Recorder and it's firmware, based on the media it detects in the drive.
