Extremely slow disc recognition on 716A



I’m not sure if this is standard or not, but it seems like my PX-716A has extremely slow recognition times. It takes roughly 20-30 seconds to recognize a full DVD+R disc. I have tested this on burns with Verbatim 8X DVD+Rs and all the discs take a long time to initialize. I also tested some retail DVD discs I had and those took around 10-20 seconds. Is this normal?

The drive is set to UDMA4 and I am using an 80-conductor IDE cable.


I think it’s normal, my drives does the same, like yours.
Pressed dvds are a little bit faster, i would worry about, when the
drive doesn’t recognize the dvds or cds! :wink:


Plexes unfortunately always had slow DVD recognition times.


Yeah, PX-716A is a bit slow at that department. My old PX-708A is even faster.


mine detects right after you insert it (its an option in its hardware which is switchable)


Err, how do it turn it on? The instant recognition, that is.


dragger seems to do some elaborate work. Just see his thread there: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=138262 :wink:
