Yup. You can now turn your 1600 into a 1620. This is official from BenQ, and not a hack. Read all about it, and get the firmware upgrade through club.cdfreaks.com, or through benq.com.

Again though. These drive prefer +R media. Spend your money on those for now. Stay away from no name junk.

Have fun. :)

*I also have a 822a and both work identically well, so I'm posting pretty much the same info on this one too. I also have 1620 on the way.*

Love this burner! Did a LOT of research at clubcdfreaks on this and others. This drive is known to prefer + disks. It also has auto bit setting to DVD-ROM. I burn Arita/Ridata (RICOH JPNRO1) 4x disks and Prodisc R03 (overburn Prodiscs @ 12x) and get perfect burns as per KProbe scan. Using firmware B5G9. PI average under 8 and PO (PIF) under 3-4. 10000/500 or so for both respectively. About 6 min and 30 sec. for full disk burn.

Do your research. All drives do not burn all media the same, and some are very fussy! Don't use crap/cheap media. Do your research!
