Thanks! Works Great!!!


#4

please let us know if Plex has fixed the PIF spikes


#5

Does that mean it now works with the Nvidia Nforce SATA drivers? Already any experiences on this topic?


#6

works for me, but never knew there was a problem.


#7

ANY change?


#8

Sorry if this is newbie question but why Plextor Europe site still dont have that v1.06 available?

And if i download and install that from US site does it change region code to 1 or something like that?


#9

The firmware won’t change your region code. It doesn’t matter which of the Plextor official sites you download firmware from.


#10

Ok, thank you very much.


#11

Does this firmware shows any improvements over version 105 ?


#12

Like I Said before they changed noting other than adding additonal support for SATA controllers and USB.

What I would hope to see before Plex stops supporting the 760 is a fix to the OPC spikes when burning.


#13

Hmmm, no sign of RPC1 firmware 1.06 for PX-760A or RPC1 1.07 for PX-755A on TDB website…


#14

If i remember correctly the “free your Plextor” guys implemented RPC1 in their firmware mod since 1.06/1.07. See: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=199281&highlight=free+plextor

How about DVD-R support? My own 760SA won’t burn a full DVD-R disk, and just today, one of our customers has bought a 760A - which has the exact same problem: when burning a full DVD-R disk, the burn stops when it’s 2/3 in the burn process…

Has anyone else also experienced this with DVD-R disks, differént brands (DVD+R work fine)


#16

I haven’t had problems burning a full DVD-R disc with my 760SA. What brands are you using?


#17

I’m using TDK 16x DVD-R, my customer is using HP DVD-R (unknown speed)


#18

Both HP and TDK aren’t the most compatible disc types. :frowning:
Try with some Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden.


#19

Same here; no problem with 755A ( the “little bro” of 760A) and Verbatim (with TY dye) 8x DVD-R

i put a ide to sata converter on my 760a 1.06 .

but when i access the drive it freezes the computer/lock…
if you then unplug the sata cable from it- the computer comes good again.
works as ide ok.

with nero or plextools etc…

the converter (jbmicro 330) works on a nec 7170 +pioneer 112d/111d /110a/sony 820a

iv got 5 diff sata controllers but no go…
