[QUOTE=Womi;2228258]I wouldn’t worry too much about the total recording times.
My PX-760A has 2.0.35D - [B]52[/B].27.36D right now and is still working fine.[/quote]
I hope mine lasts as long as yours!
[QUOTE=Womi;2228258]What media did you try? My Plextors are not picky about media.[/QUOTE]
I take it back, there must be something substandard with some of the media I’ve tried since different discs of the same MID/ATIP work now. The flakey ones were an empty [U]Sony 97:24:16[/U] (which I think must’ve been stored too long/old media), an empty [U]Prodisc 97:32:19[/U] (which has a Black Substrate - the Plexie might not like that at all), a burned [U]CMC 97:26:66[/U] (TDK brand, burned with I can’t remember which drive), another empty [U]Prodisc 97:32:19[/U] (Maxell - dirty dirty dirty), and a few other ATIPs (that mostly worked - if they were pristine).
As for DVD MIDs, an MCC 03RG20 got the “2 amber blink” treatment, but I guess that was also damaged since it was the disc following the one which had a cracked-hub, the one I posted in the thread Another odd Verbatim disk. Everything else was detected, and I’m still kinda figuring out how to operate a Plex and understand its functions… and seeing if this thing can reach 16x, a feat that I’ve yet to achieve with any of my external drives.
PS. Having to use PlexTools Professional XL 3.16 after getting used to CD/DVD Speed is like learning another language. I’ve no idea if I should tweak any of the settings (which mostly I don’t understand) and the graphs/results are somewhat similar but confusing…
