After 2 RMAs I finally received a good working burner. TLA 308 June 2005.
Only burned one CDR with it though. I’m just happy it can read both cdrs and dvds now. Haven’t done a DVD burn with it yet but I’m sure it will work fine. I think Plextor has finally got around building a PX-716a burner that works. Well at least for me. My faith in them is somewhat restored. I’ll give this new burner a full weekend of DVD burning and hopefully it will remain fully operational afterwards. I’ve only run acouple tests with Plextools on a cdr. I’m still not exactly sure what these tests actually tell me. I’ll try and do a few tests and provide the results here and maybe someone can tell me if they are good. I have plenty of TY disks (both cdr and dvd-r) to burn with.
