Plextor 712sa is tempremental with cds



Got a asus A8N sli delux with a Plextor 712sa drive. The drive seems to be fine reading DVDs, installed Battlefield 2 fine, but then it sometimes hangs when installing cd bases programs. Doom III always fails on the third disk while World of Warcraft only gets to terrian files on first disk and then doesn’t seem to do anything else. Drive stops spinning and I just have to cancel download.

Other games, Rome Total War, have installed find so I’m at a bit of a loss at to what’s up. I’ve updated the firmware to 1.07 and the plextor drive is the only one connected by SATA.
