This is my first post here.
I've got a Plextor 708X, purchased in October 2004, running firmware version 1.07. I've been successfully backing up DVDs using DVD Shrink/DVD Decrypter, and Sony labeled 4X DVD+R media, ID RICHOJPN-R01-02.
I began using Sony labeled 8X DVD+R media, ID YUDEN000-T02-00, and am now getting lots of glitches on playback. I tried burning at 4X instead of 8X, but the glitches persist.
I wonder if a firmware upgrade would fix this. The Plextor 708A firmware is up to 1.10, so my version 1.07 is three updates behind, but I don't know if any of the updates adds YUDEN000-T02-00 as additional media, or if YUDEN has always been included, and I simply have other problems.
Does anyone know which firmware added YUDEN000-T02-00, if any?
I do remember drpino had some comments about this in this thread (about 1/2 way down):
