Plextools 2.x Setup question

vbimport

#1

Hello

I lost my Plextools 2.x setup CD, so I can not install the Plextools 2.36. I read in the past somewhere here a thread with a “registry hack” to install the update without a prevoius setup of the CD version.

Unfortunately I can not find this anymore :sad:


#2

Is there any reason for not installing Plextools LE? You can install it without a previous version of Plextools present.

Cheers

James.

Based on your signature you have a lot of Plextor drives. Each drive comes with a copy of Plextools installation CD: did you lost all these CDs? :wink:


#4

The newer drives has Plextools LE/XL on the additional disk, and I only had Plextools 2.x with my Premium drive. Finally I found an old disk yesterday in the later evening.

For this reason my problem is solved I found my disk :slight_smile:


#5

I looked around TM but could not find anything for you. Glad you found your disc.

You might want to make a backup copy.


#6

I have more PlexTools CDs than I know what to do with, and would be glad to get rid of them!


#7

I purchased a Plextor 760A on E-bay, came with no disk,to purchase one, the cost is about $60, which I don’t I think is worth it. The free version, LE, is very limited. Are there any other tools to use with Plextor to do scans and other tests?


#8

Pxscan, but you have to flash the 760A with patched firmware in order to use it.

Thanks, where would I get the patched firmware from?

TM,

I have this original CD in case you might need it in the future. :cool:

I’m intrigued to know what features you need that aren’t in LE.

Cheers

James.

For example: MP3-tags in conjunction with freedb are broken in XL/LE.


#14

But 2.x doesn’t work on Vista, right?


#15

Right.

The good ole’ plexreghack could come in handy, for someone who lost his Disc.
