Some people including myself have seen a Plextor PX-708A drive cause scuffs or scratches on the bottom of discs. In an effort to gather all information about this in one place, can you please copy and paste the following form and fill it in, so that we might find any trends in what’s happening? Thank you in advance!
The advantage of this thread is that it can help you determine whether or not you have the same problems as other people, and whether or not their solutions will help you. Posting your own information will help the next person and maybe will help Plextor develop a solution if they don’t have one already.
Does Your PX-708A Create Marks On Your Discs? (if the answer is ‘no’ then you don’t have to fill this out!)
Drive TLA: (find this on the retail box, on the drive itself, or through plextools)
Type of Discs Marked: (does it only scuff DVDs, or only CD-R, or everything except pressed CDs?)
Does The Drive Have Problems Identifying Any Types of Media? (i.e. does it detect CD-R very slowly or not at all?)
Does The Drive Have Problems Reading Any Types of Media? (i.e. does it read a certain type of disc very slowly or not at all?)
Does The Drive Have Problems Writing Any Types of Media? (i.e. does writing a certain type of disc fail or work in a strange way?)
What was the solution, if any? (i.e. Did you fix this through a driver update? Was an RMA necessary?)
Replacement Drive TLA Number: (ignore this if you did not get a replacement drive)
Does The Replacement Drive Work? (ignore this if you did not get a replacement drive)
