I am with you and a very proud owner of my first Plextor. Burns GREAT with DVDDcrypter. I am using Verbatim 16x +R media w/ v1.04 F.W. Pretty much burns up to 15.5 x (when the image is large enough).
I have not yet installed any of the software that came bundled w/ unit (full retail package).
By golly gee folks, I can’t figure out how to enable/set bit setting. According to the linked review in this forum, this drive is supposed to be capable of bit setting w/ +R media. I’ve searched forum for about 15 min. can’t find a definative link. Can someone please help.
