Hi:
I have a new Benq EW822U External DVD burner attached to a pretty new computer with XP. When I used the Sonic software to burn data to a R+ disk it just ejects it and asks for a disk. (I did quick format the disk before using it)
The complete info on the box it came in says Benq ew822u deluxe 8x +-Dual external usb2.0 dvd+/-rw. Is it possible this burner only burns rw media? ....although that seems like a really stupid thought.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
John

Don't know how you got it configured but had a similar problem. I hook mine as a slave to cd drive and it would not write and sometimes not read a disk. I rehooked it as master and cd as slave and no problem since. You may want to try switching the drives if you have 2 drives on same cable. Also I would suggest to use the master and slave setttings on the drives. Sometimes the cable select can cause a problem.
