Several months ago I made this post here.... http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/399716 I was making alot of coasters back and I got alot of help from some very nice people who said that the problem seemed to be the fact that my DMA was all turned off. So I recently got around to fixing my DMA and now it's all on for both my HD's and my burner. I exptected this to fix my problem. And I think for non DL media it did. At least I've burned two DVD-R discs since I got my DMA turned on and they seemed fine. But I'm still not able to even read DVD+R DL. Actually there was one brand of DVD+R DL that my burner read and was able to burn stuff onto occassionally and that was Office Depot. So right now I have here with me a stack of Verbatim DVD+R DL and a stack of RiDATA DVD+R DL and my BenQ 1655 won't read either of them. When I put them in the drive the light blinks for about 20-30 seconds and then nothing. When I bring up Qsuite or NeroInfoTool they both tell me that "no disc is in the drive". After I turned my DMA on and still couldn't read DL dics, I went and upgraded my BenQ 1655's firmware to BCID, and still no change, so then because I hadn't done it in a while and probably had a few viruses and some spyware on my HD I also did a complete format of my HD and reinstalled Windows XP. And still it's the exact same result; won't read either of the types of DVD+R DL that I have. And I got both the Verbatim DVD+R DL and the RiData DVD+R DL from SuperMediaStore; the Verbatim having been recommended by the nice people here as being one of the best brands and the RiData supposedly being the brand that Office Depot uses. Anyway, any help is much appreciated!
