Atapi CD R/RW Driver updates

By harnold ·
Have older CDR/RW Atapi CRW6206A, firmware 1.2A, driver Microsoft 5-11-98. Won't work with 700MB (80 minute) CD's, only the 640MB version. Is there a driver update to solve this problem?

There's drivers for firmware 1.2a and 1.3a for this driver at:

http://www.benq.com.au/products/cdr/service/
drivers2.htm##cdrw

"16a.exe" ; but I do not know if it would do what you need it to do. What you probably should look for is whether or not you could flash the cd-rw controller BIOS with an update and how to do that if it will upgrade you from 640 to 700.

3 factors need to support large capacity disks for you to be able to burn 700MB CDs at full capacity:

The CD-RW drive hardware;

The CD-RW drive firmware;

The actual CD burning software.

If any of the 3 do not support 700MB CDs, you will be limited to 650MB burns.

Roxio / Adaptec version 3 does not support 700MB disks.
Version 4 and later do.

With Benq it is likely once yopu update the firmware it will not write 700s because of the design of the hardware.
Good Luck.
