My first px716a was giving me i/o erros after 4month of using... then i used the plextor service support and i got a new drive after some days.. but this drive sucks like hell Oo
First some system information :
windows xp sp2 , px716 is jumpered to master and alone on the seconadry ide controller ( controller and cable(80conductors) checked they work fine)
on the primary ide bus works a maxtor 200gb hdd the mainboard is from MSI a 845e Max2..
oh and the dma mode is checked and applicable... "ultra dma mode4"
i have really no idea whats going on with this drive... it reads only after 10-15 tries a burned dvd and cd's and original dvd's never .. i was able to burn 5dvds but reading doesn't work....
although i patched it to a newer firmware 1.09 nothing changed...
what should i do? contact plextor? and tell about this crap which they send me? or is my system crashed wtf is going on:( i got two windows installed my second is windows 2003 and there i get the same erros so i think it's not a windows error.
thx for any ideas and help
