PX-708UF ext. problems after upgrading to v1.06

Good day!

Anyway, i upgraded my firmware 1.04 to 1.06 for my px-708UF external drive a
while ago… everything went fine… but my problem is after rebooting and
restarting winxp the drive can’t be detected properly… take note that the
external drive is still turned on while booting… there’s a yellow
exclamation point with the plextor external drive according to my device
manager… what i did was turned the device off then turned it on again. the
drive was properly detected after i did it… once again i reboot windows and
the drive is still left on. and again the problem is that the drive cant be
detected again…
after that i repeated the whole process and still the problem persist…
after rebooting i went back to 1.04 and the problem was gone… verified it
again by rebooting atleast 3 times and no problems encountered. anyone here
experienced this problem with their PX-708UF drive? btw i’m using a firewire
port with my plextor. the problem only shows when using 1.06.

although the problem is not that critical but my only concern is when i’ll
be rebooting i have to turn off the drive and turn it on again after booting
process is complete for it to be detected properly…

:confused:

With the drive turned on and connected, and the bang on the driver, remove the device from the device manager. Reboot and let it detect the device again. This should make it permanent. If it still acts up, contact tech support to report the bug.
