I own a PX-708A which worked fine for the past three years. Currently it is giving me headaches.
- [li]It cannot read DVDs it wrote in the past (these discs can still be read in other drives)
[/li][li]It can read retail DVD-video discs
[/li][li]Writing fails most of the time on DVD+R (Traxdata RICOHJPN R01-002, Imation CMC MAG E01, Philips +RW). When it succeeds, it cannot read the media anymore so a verify fails (in this case the discs can be read successfully and without errors in a different drive).
Now with a number of coasters I suspect this to be a hardware issue. Questions:
[li] Anyone who can support this or has a different opinion?
[/li][li] If so, I presume this drive is too old to have it repaired; suggestions for a new one? I don’t need higher speeds, just a quality drive that is not very selective to the media it writes to.
