Anyone tried using CDRWs with this drive, with any success? Notice that one user, Tester I believe said he changed the bit setting but didn’t mention the program he used. I will look at nero speed if it is in nero express suite, and report back my tp read speeds. I deinstalled it and let W2K find it and reinstall on PC reload. Maybe it isn’t since yours seems to do a similar task in 5 to 6 minutes. IDE cable, audio cable. The DWA offers 4x write and 4x re-write speeds, handily surpassing the DVD burner products of its global competitors.

Besides the reading sensitivity issue, and it simply breaking, I am happy with its performance. The second rating between the is a normal average rating. Cyber Monday Newegg: I highly recommend using the bit setting option. And thanks for putting up test results on the “Ultra 4x4x12” on your page. I’m wondering why others doesn’t have these problems my firmware b1hy without update. Seems to work as advertised. Others with less demanding read requirements may have no issues. Do I understand you correctly that your drive is reading at 12x?

Storage by Rick Broida Sep 26, My drive tops out slightly above 8x. New firmware at BenQ Global. It has worked flawlessly since.

There may be other factors to consider as well that might balance that out in the Sony and Teac’s favor. Have had this writer for a few days.

dw40a The BenQ DWa scares me with its reputed cheaper quality and too sensitive reading. I thing it is a bad drive. I have informed BenQ tech support of the bug, not sure when it will be addressed, but even with the bug in it the program will function provide you don’t choose the BenQ drive. Have this writer a couple of weeks.

I will look at nero speed if it is in nero express suite, and report back my tp read speeds. Too bad no one has tested this drive here. Apparently part of the factory refurb was to d400a the 8x firmware. If the replacement burns and reads fine, I will praise it as a good dw4000a.


Good luck, and let us know if you can. Return to DVD Writers. It may help to solve compatiblity issue.

BenQ DW400A DVD Writer

Have burned memorex 4x and tdk 4x which are ricoch. I recall their being some kind of conservative “safety buffer” when trying to burn full capacity DVD with Pinacle software, like they cannot accurately tell exactly how much disc space they need to burn????
