I’ve really had enough of this drive, if anyone out there can help me I’d greatly appreciate it. I’ve read all the threads dealing with this drive and all the issues it has with Nero so please do not direct me to one of those, with that said, here’s my problem.
The drive has been working great for 2 weeks, all of a sudden it stops working in Nero (I’ve tried every damn version under the sun, all the versions that are supposed to work, all the ones that have been posted here, the newest 22.214.171.124 update, EVERYTHING). I’ve tried uninstalling Nero, using cleaning tools, uninstalling/reinstalling the drive, uninstalling all my other cd/dvd writing software and reinstalling that, no luck.
What happens now is, after a few minutes of writing I get disc failed to burn error and a rediculous log file that means nothing to me. As far as I can tell, it stopped working after I installed and started using Pinnacle Studio 8. Now I’ve read somewhere in this forum that installing other dvd software can cause a .dll conflict or something like that. Like I said, I went back to square one, cleaned everything out and reinstalled, no luck. I have also tried the firmware upgrades and have contacted Plextor numerous times, they are unable to solve my problem.
I’m pretty much just using Nero to backup my movies, if I cannot get this working, is there at least another app out there that someone could recommend?
One last thing that’s kind of weird with Nero, when erasing a +RW disc, the time and status bar are always different, sometimes it says 2 mins, sometimes it doesn’t say, sometimes it takes 5 seconds, hell, sometimes the bar goes right to the end then starts going back down, I don’t get it, I’m completely fed up with this nonsense, please, someone help me!
