I have had the plextor px716a for one month now and tried a number of media
infinity =cmc mag e01,tdk,ricoh,ritek and sony.
i burned dvds with nero or plextools at 8 speed and they took about 8 minutes depending the amount of data to be written.
But since a week plextor started slowing down it started with the sony (d11) disks.The first one had a lead-in of some 4 minutes and then took 20 minutes to produce a coaster .From then on writing with nero will take between 13-20 minutes and in plextools 20-40minutes always with bp occurences.
Installed microsoft verified ide sw drivers.
When i am burning dvds the only other activity thats going on is leeching on 119.I have a number of virtual dvd-roms active.
