My NEC 2500A just about had it from ripping/burning. The drive was still covered under warranty from Dell so they sent a replacement out to me. When I tool a look, it was a PHILLIPS DVD+/-RW DVD8801 drive with the words BenQ written on the one of the stickers. I did a little research and found that you can crossflash this drive into a BenQ DW1650! Ah, I thought I would never get another BenQ after they got bought out and my DW140 bit the big one...I can use QSuite once again...Can't wait to do some burning with this piece! I don't know if this is normal but the current transfer mode for this drive is rated at Ultra DMA Mode 2. The other BenQ drive I had (DW1640) had the transfer mode at Ultra DMA Mode 4. Any thoughts?
