LOL You are the fortunate owner of a particular Plex 24x that will cut 2.51.021. There are reports of this, but, in the main, Plexy owners are out of luck for the moment.

Hey Clint, here is that reply from the last email I sent Plextor. Remember, the one that I said, "Obviously, you don’t have the technical KNOW HOW to address this ISSUE! THIS ISSUE NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE “DRIVE DEVELOPER!” It took a couple of weeks though
We don’t plan to ‘address this issue’. We don’t do anything to make our drives read copy protected discs, and we don’t do anything to prevent them reading copy protected discs.
It just gets into a race between the drive mfgrs and the copy protection companies… they buy our drives and work out how to prevent discs from being copied on them. If we then develop some kind of ‘workaround’ to bypass their protection, then they just change their software again.
Usually a ‘workaround’ just ends up making more errors on discs, so we don’t do that at all. We just make sure we write quality discs.
If you don’t like copy protection, then the only way to get it resolved is to not buy copy protected software discs. If their income dries up, then those companies will either remove the copy protection, or go broke. This happend with floppy based games many years ago.
