I recently upgraded my Plextor 708A to the latest firmware, 1.10, and upgraded Nero from 5.5 to 6.6.
I've also picked-up a box of Sony DVD+R blanks, with a specified record speed of 1-8x. However, I'm encountering many bad burns, and discovering that even after successful burns my Plextor often has issues reading the same DVD it just burned. In at least one case, it couldn't read the disc at all, although the disc played fine in my Sony CD/DVD player! I've tried lowering my burn speed to 4x, but I see no improvements in consistency.
For comparison, I've got some Maxell blanks heading my way, but in the meantime, I'm still trying to determine if the ONLY problem are the Sony discs - or if they are even the problem to begin with.
Prior to this, I don't think my Plextor had burned a single bad DVD or CD in the prior 13 months.
My question is: Has anyone had compatibility problems with Sony DVD+Rs and the PX 708A in similar circumstances?
