PlexTools XL

Hi

When I save All-in one Sum1 PIF results to HTML it says PIE in the text below the image. Is this a know bug in plextools XL, or is it just me who have this minor problem?

It’s not just you. I hadn’t noticed it until you pointed it out, but it’s the same for me as well.

I am doing a jitter test with Plextools Pro and its taking forever, do all the tests take this long? Are there settings for the sppeed of the scan?

B/J is done at 2x speed and takes up to 30Min for SL and 60Min for DL. PI/PO is the same at “High Accuracy” but can be lowered by selecting a lower accuracy setting (middle = 15Min for SL).

I earlier versions of PTP you could speed up the scanning speed by switching away to the drive settings tab. This doesn’t seem to work anymore.

Thank you HWP, is there any ECC that can scan these discs with CD-DVD Speed? I am new to this drive and still learning, I do have the full Version of Plextools XL Professional also.

CD-DVD Speed does not support error-scanning with Plextor drives. IIRC http://www.dvdinfopro.com/ does. However, if you have PTPXL you’re pretty much set.

I tryed to test it with DVDInfo Pro and it doesn’t scan for PIPO, it won’t start. I just have the free version, but everytime I try a scan with V4.614 it freezes my drive, it won’t scan

Why do you think DVDInfoPro would work (unless you are using the de-sabotaged firmware and NickW knows how to use it…)

Who is NickW and where do I get this de-sabotaged firmware, or are you just messin with me.:o

NickW is the author of DVDInfoPro.

The de-sabotaged firmware, that alexnoe is hinting at, is unofficial modified firmware that removes the “protected” command authorization mechanism in Plextor PX-755 and PX-760 firmware. Without this “de-sabotaging”, it’s not possible to perform e.g. disc quality scans unless the application knows the secret challenge-response authorization mechanism in the firmware.

You can find unofficial firmware for Plextor drives and many other drives on The Firmware Page at rpc1.org.

Hi :slight_smile:
Using DVDInfoPro free version latest. Does not do PI/PO scans with Plextor 760. Even with “patched” f/w. At least that’s the case for me.

I get the same thing Zeb, but I am using the newest Plextor firmware 1.03, could you elaborate on this de-sabotaged firmware and what the upside of using it is. Also the downside would be nice to know.

The modified firmware is not “completely transparent”, the scanning app must still know that the mechanism was in the firmware. qpxtool and PxScan/PxView work with that firmware

I have researched this a little and came up with this webpagehttp://qpxtool.sourceforge.net/supported.html
Is this the scanning tool you are reffering to and will Plextools still work with this PlexLuther firmware?

Correct. It only works with 712/716: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=158648

Yes and Yes

Thankyou, since Plextools XL will work with this new modded firmware I will try it. I suppose I can always flash back, can’t I ?
