Can I use Plextor708A which I bought in Japan in Europe?

I have possibilities to by in Japan Plextor 708A. It supports Japanese Windows xp. Can I use it in Europe? Do I need any firmware upgrades?

Are you joking? It’s exactly the same machine all over the world!

Yes indeed. As an additional note: you can install firmware from Plextor America, Europe or Japan in your drive. The firmware versions are also exactly the same.

I got my old PX-W4012A drive from Singapore,used it in the middle east and i always updated its firmware from Plextor Europe.

and now im also getting PX-708A firmwares from Plextor Europe and using them with the drive…so as mentioned above,its the same drive all over the world so it doesnt matter at all.
