Hope someone can help me out thanks.

Did you try another brand of discs and/or another write speed??

Hey thanks for your reply,i did a bit of reading on this forum,and someone was saying how some windows up afected there plex 40x12x40,so i uninstalled every windows update i had,there was about 20 hotfixes in the addremove section then i reinstalled the aspis again,restarted my computer and the burner works like new again,now i have to figue out which windows update done it.
Funny thing is,i thought it was stuffed for shore so i ordered a lite-on 48x12x48 yesterday,it should turn up tommorow,i was too bull at the gate,should have waited a bit longer before i ordered it,too late now,anyway ill have two burners now,this new lite-on is supposed to be better than my plex for doing safedisc 2.51,so i gained there i suppose.

Could be your ASPI layer. Even though the newest is 4.71, I found a lot of people surprisingly have more problems with it than 4.60. So I suggest you try to use ForceASPI 1.7 to “force” it back to 4.60, it makes a copy of your exisiting layer before doing so you’ve got nothing to risk. I sorta had a problem with my Plextor, it was with it not reading any CD-RWs until I turned it to 4.60.

Hope this helps,

I have a same problem with my Plextor Premium. When i bought him I flashed a newer firmware 1.05. When i trying erase Ultra speed RW (including in plextor package) amber LED is flashing about 15-20 sec and switch to green LED. Disk was not erased. When i trying burn disk Plextor is lock on 90 percent. I`ve tried several disk and result is randomize lock and write error. Software: Nero 6.0.0.19, Plextool 2.08, Alcohol b1005. Plextor attached as a master secondary. Defect drive?
