I got my 716A yesterday (FW 1.03). I am totally disappointed by this drive. Once warmed up, it will not accept some of my DVD movies (pressed original ones). Either it takes 30-40 secs to recognize a disk OR the yellow led blinks. DVD Decrypter says "Tracking Servo Failure". It sucks!
Also i could not get the (latest) DVD decrypter to work higher than an average of ~2x. W98SE, latest ASPI installed, latest motherboard drivers, UDMA enabled, EIDE cable, etc. Totally clueless/disappointed! Any help would be appreciated.
