thank u very much.please help cause i am desperate. is there a problem with the drive?


#2

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the drive. What brand of media are you using?

Try using DVDSHRINK to compress and reauthor your dvds. I’ve heard using NERO encoders aren’t that great. DVDSHRINK is a free program. The latest version has NERO burn built into it.

http://www.dvdshrink.info/


#3

thank u very much for your help. i’ve used cration,nexus, samsung and ricoh media but no good. i’ve downgraded to firmware 1.03 but no help either so i upgraded again to 1.04.installing and unininstalling nero verion 6.019, 6.023, 6.030 and 6.032 didn’t help. i am desperate.the thing is that it worked before upgrading nero from 6.19 to .6.30.if anything else crosses your mind please fell free to suggest anything!!!thank u very much again


#4

Take a look at Plextor’s media compatibility website:http://www.plextor.com/english/support/support_compatability.html

Try using DVDSHRINK to compress and reauthor your dvd movies. Then use Nero burn or you can use IMG TOOL BURN to burn also. Here’s the link for that download:

http://www.coujo.de/ib/index.php?act=html_include&incl_name=download

There are lots of variables in burning dvds such as the brand of dvd media and the software that you use. IMG TOOL BURN is easy to use. I would suggest you upgrade to latest firmware that Plextor has. Turn off any programs such as antivirus software while you are burning. Good Luck!:slight_smile:


#5

As mentioned above it may be the media that you’re using (such as Princo according to your log) that’s causing your errors but since you’ve used other brands I don’t think that’s the cause.
Do you get the same error if you record a DVD in Nero itself or just in Recode 2? If not then there’s some kind of incompatibility between Recode 2 and PX-708A.
DVD Shrink is good if you want to do it “quick 'n dirty” otherwise there are great guides at doom9.org on converting DVD-9 (re-encoding) to DVD-5.

#6

well, i am sure it’s not the media because i wrote with dvd shrink a perfect backup on princo. thank god it doesn’t seem to be the driver because it writes with other software. the thing is that i used to write with recode and suddenly i can’t. maybe there is a bug but it’s a pitty for nero and ahead. i would also like to say that i use dvd shrink and burn with nero burning rom. So the problem must be recode 2. read other forums and it seems others too have the same problem. maybe ahead ought to do something about this.thank you very much for the help guys.if anyone has any other idea please contribute.thanks again!!!


#7

The brand of DVD Media can make a difference. Princo is known to be crappy media but hey it works on the Plextor 708A. Tryout the IMG TOOL BURN link I gave you. It’s a easy program to use just for burning. :slight_smile:
