It's known that according to drive specs 716a does support DVD-RW media upto 4x. But in changelog to firmware 1.05 was written:
# Support for newer 4X and 6X DVD-RW media
I updated firmware to 1.08 and bought Verbatim DVD-RW 6x to make some tests. But the drive still recognises it as 4x.
So the questions are: what does Plextor mean under "support" ? Is it just fact, that drive can recognise this media and write it at 4x ? Seems so, but it's hard to call real support.
Why doesn't Plex 716a fully support it, when re-badged Benq 1640 called "Plextor 740a" does ? Is there any chance, that they will add it's support to top Plextor model (at least they call it so) in firmware 1.09 or so ?
Thanx for reading this
