I got my Plextor last Friday and having problems with DVD+R
I tried till now HP 4x and Platinum but both have the same troubles with Nero (18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124)
they get normal identified as blank dvd. But when i start burning (hp with 2.4x,4x or 8x (CDVD says MCC 2.4x-4x), platinum (which are Ricohjpn 2.4x)) they get stuck at the end (?) of the lead in.
i tried the hp also with 4x speed but same result
only possibility to remove them is through hard reset. some disk have strange signs on the outside (bottom) - some dont. from the one which havent the signs i can read the lead in (on one 28mb had been written with directorylist …)
i have the following PC.
Tyan Thunder K7 (old AMD 760 MP chipset)
2x AMD 2400+ MPs
1 GB of RAM
Onboard 39160 adaptec SCSI and some disks
latest IDE Busmaster fix with Samsung 52xCDR/DVD Combo and Plextor 708 (firmware 1.02 - both on master on a own channel)
Win XP SP1 with all hotfixes (per yesterday - dont know how many were released today g)
software Nero 6 (…9 and …19)
i have no problems with other formats like these:
DVD-R (Pioneer 4x (PVCR001002 4x), Traxdata 4x (RITEKG04 4x))
DVD+RW (Platinum (RITEKW01 2x))
i found somewhere that some liteon ? DVD bruner had problems with nforce chipsets but nothing about the new plextor
any hint would be very helpful.
