So I have a Plextor Premium (TLA#0000, May 2003, firmware 1.00), installed it on my secondary IDE on my Asus A7N8X Deluxe 2.0 motherboard (nForce 2 chipset). After installing the PlexTools v2.02 that came with the drive, the secondary IDE channel wasn't detected by PlexTools. So I updated to v2.11. Now it found the PlexWriter Premium.
After some fiddling around, I inserted the CD that came along the drive, 52x 80m Plextor media. But it doesn't identify it ! So I updated the firmware to v1.05. I inserted other 80m media (Plextors I had and Maxells), the same problem. Also a 8cm CD isn't detected in PlexTools. But Nero 6 DOES identify the discs !
Problem is, GigaRec doesn't correctly display the disc sizes. It even goes negative... Is there any solution for this problem ?
I'm running WindowsXP SP1, latest nForce 2 drivers, latest Nero, latest everything. My NEC 1300A doesn't have problems with anything, along with my BTC DVDROM.
