Hi All (My first post )!
About 2 weeks ago i buy a Plextor 716 ( TLA#0202 ), install, turn on computer, recognized by OS XP, Nero Tools, CloneCd etc, but it was Dead!
Nothing works. Simply couldn`t read, or record…
Back to RMA. Receive a new one. Install it, power On and i hear a strange noise inside, something breacking…bad Start i thought…
But it Works! Fast rippings, fast burns…but…
The unit makes a lot of noise and vibrations!, especialy at 8x DVD record or CD`s 32x…the first minutes, all my case ( Antec 1000 AMG + Watercooling inside ) vibrates likes a damm V…
Sometimes the noise/vibrations are less, sometimes higher! Burning 3 MCC 004 ( Verbatim 16x ) at Max speed, is less noising that at 8x!!
Anywhay, i use CloneDVD and Nero to burn. Plextools DMA on, PR ON, AS on, Silent Mode On…no conflits anywhere…
My best burn was on a Memorex at 4x ( MBIPG101R03 Moeser Baer India Limited ), with a PI only 16 with Q-Check Pi PO test…
Q-Check TA test : Very Good-Very Good -Very Good
I have also a Plextor 48x, but recording the same media at 32x, has no comparation in noise and vibration!
I dont think the unit works bad in making records DVD, but isn`t normal…all this vibrations…you are the specialists…should a stay with this unit? :o
Just more informations: The Verbatim DL 2.4 record at 4x give me on Q-Check Pi PO test a litle “coast?” at midle of 24…the rest under 20!
Please sorry my bad english or stupid question/afirmation!
