Ive read most of the posts relating to peoples Plextor PX-712A problems but my problem seems to be a littlle different.
My Plex doesnt lock up but just fails burning the disc mainly when doing the ‘lead out’ (cannot complete lead out on disc at once) but it can also happen at various stages of burning. Ive only just got the thing and ordered 100 Datawrite Red (V3) discs with it, ive tried writing games and movies, mainly from iso’s using both Nero and CloneDVD and my success rate is about 50/50 Ive no other media to test it with but after reading the threads on here Im starting to think its probably the Plex’s fault.
The final straw came today when I tried to burn an audio CD from MP3’s and it ‘coastered’ 3 out of 3 CD-R’s !!! I starting to regret buying the PX-712A, espcially when it was a good Â£35 more expensive than the Lite-On I was going to get.
Ive tried upgrading the fiemware to 1.03 and using different versions of Nero and CloneDVD (not plex tools yet) with no improvement at all.
Any advice/help would be very much appreciated before it goes back to the shop were it came from.
