Has anyone else seen this issue? I have a PX-708UF USB/Firewire external DVD+/-RW CD-R/RW drive (TLA #0206, firmware 1.06) that seems to work fine. However, when reading CDs, at about the 65 minute mark the reading speed drops off drastically.
Nero CDSpeed shows the sudden drop pretty easily:
Contrast this with the test results from http://www.benscustomcases.com/reviews/px708uf/ :
The drive has already been RMAd through Plextor, but the replacement does the same thing. I've tried different PCs, and different CDs (all stamped, no CD-R), but they all show the same thing. I have not tried the Firewire connection-- only high-speed USB 2.0.
Anyone else see the same thing? Anyone else with the same TLA have a USB-connected drive that tests fine?
