1.04U UPDATE The mobo compatibility isn't all that changed!
I just did a quick survey of Plextor's websites.
Europe labels it as PX716A104U.exe
U.S. labels it as PX-716_104II.exe
Japan labels it as just PX716_104.exe--they simply replaced the old file with the new version so the older version isn't even there!
I diff'd the files and the binaries are all identical.
The European site talks only about motherboard issues.
The Japan site lists the following additions:
- Improvement to peculiar problem to part specific mother board.
- The interchangeability of media made with part DVD recorder is improved.
The U.S. site goes on to list even more details (PAYDIRT!):
