Nonexistent "PYXETOH NOD6RCL2" CdRom device (Plextor PX-712SA)

[qanda]This thread is about the Plextor PX-712SA. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]My Plextor PX-712A is not working – reads but doesn’t write, and hangs when a blank CD or DVD is inserted. When I look at the drive with device manager, I see the plextor and a second, non-existent drive called “PYXETOH NOD6RCL2 CdRom device.” I think this is some software that created a virtual CD drive and may be interfering with the real DVD drive, but I can’t seem to uninstall it.

Try replacing the ide cable.
