Hey all…big-time noob here. I picked up a PX-716A, used, because I needed a drive that was compatible with plextools (c1/c2 error checking etc)…music production stuff.
After searching the internet for hours, I’m starting to think that this unit was in a duplicating tower. Someone (probably the makers of the tower) flashed the firmware to version 1.69 as a px-708R. The tla# is 0309 so that kinda makes sense, and the label clearly indicates it is a 716A.
My attempts at flashing the firmware (using Plextor’s 716A and 708 .exe’s) nets the same result…“No Drive Found” Is this hopeless or is there a way to reset the firmware and start over. All help is appreciated as I’m under the gun!
