Both of mine were not answered. The second one I can understand (it was just informative), but in the first one I was having bad scan results and wasn't sure (in those days) if it was the drive or the media. My request for further information on interpretation or what to do next went unanswered.
3rd PxScan just does not work for me at all, not even the new version, new motherboard same problem's and yes i've followed the readme to the letter, it just doesn't work. I have 3 Plextor's the Premium, 712SA and 716SA all of them are seen in the bios all of them are seen by windows, plextools, Roxio, Nero, CloneDVD, CloneCD, i'm sure you get the picture, PXScan just won't stay open period.
I saw this in another thread and I remember it because the same thing happened to me. I solved it by putting the DOS "pause" command in the batch file:
pxscan pie pif speed=2 destfile=output.pxd
Because the PAUSE kept the window open, I was able to see why it was closing so fast: An error message saying "no media inserted".
Please try that and let us know.
@Alex: Maybe you should add PAUSE to the end of your example batch files; an error message isn't much use if you never see it!
