my cousin bought a plextor PX 504A dvd+r yesterday (4x/2.4x) that was used and i have some questions that require immediate attention.So please forgive my posting this topic on 2-3 different places but i need to gather some info fast.
Be not bothered to post again if u post here.Thank u dearly.
So,we installed the dvd+r in his machine and we got a hp 2,4+RW disk to see what we can do.
After some sorting we found out that his nero 5.5.something could write dvd's as well,so we began.
1)First,we wrote a cd of 300 mb that went cool..but there was some time before the beggining of the operation(5-8seconds) that nothing did nothing..it was like loading.Is that ok???
2)Morover the drive makes much noise when it ejects/rejects(the tray),is that normal as well?
Then we did the dvd+rw copy,and we copied 520 mb to see how it goes.Same delay of 5secs(?),then it took 35 secs formatting the disk (does it do that all the time?),then 3.30mins totally(with prev time) for the writing,then nero began counting again,and after 45 secs it was done.3)IS THE ABOVE KIND OF OPERATION NORMAL? mind u,we were burning on 2,4.
Then we tried the +rw disk we got (520mb,without finalization) on the plextor drive,it was ok,but his dvd drive didnt read it,and his even older dvd drive it didnt read it as well.
4)Should we have finalized it?
5)What could be wrong?
If you could give me some answers i'd be delighted and very thankful.
Please forgive the length of the post and try to help any way u can.Thanx in advance for your time.
