Hello to everyone. I’m new here.
I got my Plex 708 about 4 months ago (type 0001). Since then I have gradually upgraded the firmware up to 1.4.
I was burning some DVD material from the very beginning quite succesfully using Studio8 (video editing program). Recently I have managed to burn even a couple of backups of the movies.
However, I have had problems with audio CDs since the beginning (with Nero 4.54). Initially the burn process failed every time during the simulation with all different media I happened to have available. At the same time my LG CD burner worked without a hitch. When I upgraded the firmware to 1.2 (or 1.3) the CD burning started to work OK. However, with my Sony CD media, although the simulation went OK, the burn process failed wright in the beginning. In fact it hadn’t burnt anything at all, and I was able to burn the project with LG to the same disc.
When I upgraded to 1.4, I managed to burn a project on the same Sony media. However, after the speed check Nero tells me that it can only burn with the speed of 16x (instead of 40x) because “the origin of the data is slow” (this is a translation to english). Regardless of this the end result is pefect.
Would anyone be able to diagnose this problem?
