Since a few years I use a Plextor PX712A CD/ DVD burner, so far wihtout any problems. During the last months I found more and more cd-r media being incompatible with my drive. I had a bunch of Verbatim pastel disks, which are now gone. So I bought new discs but from another manufacturer (Sony). When I put in the empty cd-r the drive starts blinking and won’t stop. Before, it was blinking, too but after a short time the yellow led turned into green and I could start burning.
I had these issues with 90 minutes media first and thought it would be the problem but now I also have the problem with newer Verbatim media (not Tayo Yuden).
The drive has the latest firmware update (long ago from 2006 V 1.09). So I wonder if there is any chance for an upgrade some time.
Does anyone have an idea where the problem is? So far I had no problems burning DVD meida at all. It’s only the CD media which causes problems. Is the drive defective or could a firmware solve the problem. Is the drive just too old? Is there any way to get these media working?
Every help is welcome!
