Hello all. I just come across a Plextor 716A for a buddy and wanted to make sure it works.
I hooked it up to my backup pc and swapped it with my current PX-716A-setting it identical. Dvdidentifier said the fw version is 1.10,just like my working plexy. This backup pc is not hooked to the net.
The yellow/green light kicks on,but when time for the writing,blinks green and says insert disc. I’ve tried all the blank discs in my collection. I even tried playing an original on it and the yellow light blinks. I also tried uninstalling drivers and reboot and same result.
I had 0 issues with my regular 716a,using plextools that came with it.
- Would there be a conflict with plextools with the 2nd plexy?
I’m thinking this is a refurbished drive,I noticed the seal was broken and the official plextor sticker label removed.
- I’m guessing the firmware is lost, needs reflashed–couldn’t hurt any?
If I reflash, It’ll be on my main pc which has only had HP and Benq drives. I’ll swap out my 1650 from it-being identical to my backup pc,running secondary slave.
Benq’s,No problem. Plextors,I’m a newb! I saw a few plextor threads and the links gave a lot of different utilities.
I have downloaded Plextools Professional V3.11- the free version.
Anything else I need to d/l?
