I bought this PX-716A a year ago and never had any problems. I bought maxwell media 4x DVD+R media when I first purchase the burner, had no problems. Then I ran out of blank dvds, then I bought more maxwell 4x DVD+R, then I couldnt get any of them to work. So I went out and bought a 100 pack of Fuji 8X DVD+R, never had a single problem with that batch. Ok last week I finally ran out of those, so I went to Best Buy to buy more blank dvds. So I purchase 5 pack of 25 Fuji 8x DVR+8. I had nothing but coasters one after another with that batch of Fuji. So I went out and bought 2 packs of 50 Sony 8x DVD+R. I had no luck with them either. It will go thru the process of reading and burning to disc, but once i try and play it in my home dvd player, it always says "No Disc Error". I just now went out and bought 25 pack of Verbatim 16x DVD+R and still says " No Disc Error" after ripping it to the disc with no problems. I thought it might have been my home dvd player, so I tried it in my other 2 dvd players and they all said "Please insert Disc". Even tried playing it on my computer and it says "please insert disc" also. I even have the latest firmware, which is 1.08. Something needs to be done, getting very expensive for me because Best Buy wont let me return the blank dvd because they were open. Scared to death to buy more blank dvds, fear of not working either and thowing my money away. Does my Plextor len needs cleaning ?
Hate to throw it away since I paid $130 last year for it.
