I’ve got serious problems with my 716A. It started maybe a month ago, when I got Power calibration errors continuously, (FW 1.08) when writng a cd. After that I tried to erase CD-RWs but it crashed, and made the discs, (4 in a row, hooray!) unerasable. After that i got power calibration errors with dvd+r (Verba, MCC-004; Sony; Fuji, Ritek) too. I decided to take it to service, but I didn’t had time to do that, so I didn’t used it until today. After installing FW 1.09 I tried to write a Fuji +R (Ritek) at 4x. For my suprise it finished without a glitch, but It can’t be read not just by the 716A itself, but by my laptop’s drive too! what could be the problem? Thanks for any help!
My config: Asus A7V333, Athlon XP 1800+, 256MB@266 Mhz, GeForce2 GTS, Matrox Diamonmax Plus8 40Gb, Windows XP Prof. SP2
I’m using my drive as a master, on a 40-conductor IDE-cable, with DMA enabled. All recordings were done with the most recent Plextools.
Sorry for my mayhap inappropriate english.
