Need help with my Plextor 8/4/32



!Hi friends of CD Freaks!
I decided to make an upgrade to my Mitsumi 4X CDR and yesterday buy a Plextor 8/4/32 IDE and until the moment I have damaged 7 disks and I have not been able to burn none successfully. I have tried to make a Backup of a directory and I have not been able because the system hangout. I have tried to burn a copy of Encarta 98 making an image to the hard disk first and using the plextor like reader and burner and the system stills Hangout. I am using Nero 4.9.1 and CloneCD.
My system is a Pentium II 400 / 256MB Ram / 18GB IBM / Plextor 8/4/32 as master and the mitsumi 4X as slave. My Plextor was Manufactured in February /2000 and have the latest firware. I install Easy CD but then I removes it. Please somebody help me.
Thanks, Invader.


I have an identical drive and seem to have no problems.
I use WinOnCD and NTI CD Maker
i use the plextor as both reader (12x & 20x) and writer (4x & 8x)
The WinOnCD should have been supplied with the new drive and NTI is available from
Good Luck


I also have a Plextor 8/4/32 CD-burner.
I use Easy CD Creator 4 Deluxe as my cdr-software. Still I haven’t got any problems so I think there’s something wrong with your Settings. Do you have buffer underrun as error message… Than you have to burn your cd’s on lower speed.
