  1. Hey all!
    I need some help with my DVD burner.. BenQ DW1620.. i hav had it for bout 3 years and i havnt noticed this problem before..
    Certain DVDs that i insert into my DVD burner read as being BLANK DVDs whereas i know they are not blank... other DVDs do seem to work..
    I did a test and got my friend 2 burn a couple dvds for me.. from the same DVD burner.. 1 of them worked.. whereas 1 didnt.. so im really confused at whats wrong with my DVD burner?
    thanx 4 ne help!

    Replace the burner... 3 years is old for a burner. My NEC burner is approaching this age

    Try this first,
    Update the Firmware.
    It fixed my read problem.
    But mine was brand new.
    So you might need a new one.
    I had one only 2 1/2 years.
