I have just upgrade my two 716 drives to 1.09 firmware. I have recorded with both of them Ritek +R DL before the upgrade without problems (till one of the drives dead like recorder and now is only a reader drive). After the firmware upgrade both of them can’t read the Ritek +R DL burned with the 716. These DVDs are recorded with the 1.09 firmware too. Both started reading the DVD, but failed and ends blinking the led in a series of five blinks. The DVDs work perfectly in my standalone DVD player.
Plextor, are you there? If so, please, do not “fix” what works perfectly…
I think I will have to return to the 1.08 firm
