Plextools is not on my cd that came with my drive.
Anyone know where to get it? Plextor only has upgrades.

???:confused:

I have the 40/12/40A

I sometime may seem harsh and blunt when it comes to the search function, but when I do point it out, you can almost bet your life on it the answer can indeed be found that way :wink:

But is it OK to use, and will it work with USA writers (401240A specifically)?
Thank you

Yes, i guess it’s (much)better than the US util, but Plextools may have
not as much options to perform, but Plextools is still growing…
And is easy to handle.

is plextools compatible with EZCD v5.1 running on win2k, sp2?

reading the forms it is compatible with CD Clone, so that is good. here in the US plextor distributes plexmgr which is crap and not well maintained. when 2K was new it fbar’d many a windows installation…:frowning:

big question is it worth installing???

thanks,
eric

You should ask this question the otherway-around, :wink:
and it depends what you expect of it, it doesn’t (yet) create
data backup, it does do in a execelent job in cd-copy
data and audio protection schemes, as well it does DAE also,
if this is all you want, forget the rest cloncd, etc…
you must take the name Plextools very serious: Plex Tools
Plex as in that it’s tuned to deal with the Plextor hardware,
in a good tuned way, Tools as in that is not yet a complete
application, so you need for creating data backup, something
like Nero, if Plextools can’t run with EZCD EZCD maybe at fault…
but i believe no-one reported a problem in this direction…

If you have Plextor hardware, you should have run Plextools,
to have full control…:cool:

I understand this, but not all people have the same (expert) skills, and i guess when they find a “Plextor” forum, they expect there’s somebody who can give a short, simple answer, and they don’t expect an unfriendly answer, or LIKE that, i guess you can in, that case, point them to Google…:confused:

What’s in Plextools?

What’s PlexTools do that the USA software (Plextor Manager 2000) doesn’t?

Is there any point to get Plextools if you use Nero/InCD?


#12

Does Plex Manager have options for ‘Hide CD-R Media’ and ‘Only Read First Session’ :wink: No I’m not mistaken PlexTools with CloneCD but these options can be found in the latest version 1.14. PlexTools also has a build-in audio player which can play CD-text, etc. http://www.plextor.be/English/technical/plextools.html

Well, i’ve downloaded Plextools but unfortunately, it doesn’t work.

Says my wnaspi32.dll is out-of-date so I downloaded the new 4.7 ASPI layer from Adaptec (as well as downloading trying the one from Nero: Burning ROM) but the only thing that resulted in was having Plextools crash everytime I try to run it with a GPF in mcilau.dll (some Netscape media player file, though oddly enough I don’t have Netscape but I can’t delete the file).

Also caused a nice Windows error-type thing with it saying a program I ran recently replaced a system file with an older version. File being winaspi.dll, tried restoring the thing off the Windows cd with SFC but still get that message.

Argh! :confused:

When it says that your wnASPI32.dll is out of date,
there’s something very basic wrong with your setup !
… ASPI is always needed !
except in WindowsXP i guess… so install ASPI…for starters…:slight_smile:
when you have a SCSI adapter in your system, installing
shouldn’t be a problem… when not… search for older versions
of ASPI …

mcilau.dll is a audio cd player lib file Netscape/Windows should install this for you (correctly) otherwise, check your “soundmapping”
if this is connected to the correct “device” for your situation…

btw… when you’re using Nero, don’t worry about ASPI,
because Nero installs it’s own version… but only Nero has access
to it.

When you’re using Plextor drives, use Plextools
for CD Copy, DAE or cd copy to image files functions,
for all other functions use Nero.
Plextools does a lot of settings for you, you don’t have to
think about, which you have to do with CloneCD, CdrWin, etc…

install Plextools that came with your drive,
and upgrade with the above link (it really works)
(if you’re using Windows98/SE you need ASPI from the Adaptec site too, if you have no SCSI adapter, you can only install older versions of ASPI)

Success,

Difference between Plextools and Plextor Manager.
In my opinion, Manager is better for dae because you can settle the quality from o to 100 %. There is just a secure mode in Plextools.
I already had dae problems with plextools (scratched cd), never with manager. But manager isn’t good with audio protections.
EAC is good for both jobs but it can be very slow. When it is too slow, i use plextools with a 4x limit.


#20

Sorry for that, i will look for an alternative (Plextools setup version)
