the problem is not only in cd writing byt in allready written cds also... and i mean the drive cant read any cds at all blank or written or even pressed cds that i got from varius hardware ... mobos , vga , pci cards etc...
Aftrer inserting the cd and 10-20sec of waiting the drive to be ready (yellow light)...the drive starts blinking every 2-3 sec in orange light...and when i try to open the drive from win... explorer i get an IO eror.
Theese things do not happen with dvds of any kind but only with cds!!!
It is not my first drive ... I've been arround a litle ... also got lg 4081 , nec 2500@dl ,nec3500 , pioneer 108 ,and recently LOL!!! plextor 716a .
Allready RMAed the first which couldn't read or write at all cds or dvds and got back a replacement unit from plextor.be....this one (px-716a tla #304 , jan 2005 )...i 'm fedup with plextor.... doupt that i could trust them any more...making my day this way
