The BenQ, however, has always been a reliable writer of these types of marginal discs and has been quite a good reader as well in handling such xvd media. The added firmware modification support is a big bonus as well. I was intrigued by it, hence my posting about it. However, many of them were not particularly reliable, partly owing to their mostly CAV characteristics, which show increased error rates towards the outside edge not due to recording issues but possibly mechanical ones.

The disc quality is not too dv according to the DW — a bit poor on the inside ring, but otherwise quite decent. I decided to write a 99 minute 00 second 00 frame disc, as in my experience, getting too close to the simulated value will cause issues. Which looks like your drive will support also.

I currently have a 32 bit.

On a simulated overburn, the BenQ DW was able to register a maximum capacity of 99 minutes 56 seconds and 41 frames. The drive reports PIFs as sum8 values rather than the standard sum1.
But when it comes to writing, all bets are off, as the actual result may not even work as drives struggle to finalize the disc or fail to maintain tracking towards the outer area.

It does go without saying that in this case, being able to overburn this much also means handling overburning of regular 80 minute CD-Rs quite well.

Owing to the presence of error correction data within the recorded data, a simple read-back verify would succeed as long as sufficient data remained readable to recover the original data post-error-correction. While CD-R overburning was easily achieved using contemporary burning software of the time Nero and generally just worked, DVD overburning was completely different. These are from my friend who built my PC. I suppose this write-up is my way of thanking the drive for years of trouble-free service.
