This is weird, I’ve burned quite a few Audio CDs (with Text) on Prodisc CD-Rs with a TLA #0304 FW 1.08 drive and they all work fine in my car’s CD changer and on other devices…but they don’t work on the Plextor, the same drive that burned them. I tried using Nero, Roxio, and PlexTools Pro to burn them; lowered the write speeds…basically had the same results. When I put the CD-Rs in, after a while the amber LED blinks twice…“auto adjustment failed.” I’ve tried using a Verbatim/MCC CD-R and that worked, then I tried some cheap ass GQ/Lead Datas and 3 out of 5 CD-Rs worked…the two bad CD-Rs had the same “auto adjustment failed” fault.
I ran the self-diognostic test twice; once with a Verbatim (good) and once with a Prodisc (bad).
So my question is…because it failed the self-diagnostic test with the Prodisc CD-R, should I exchange it for another unit even though it passed with the Verbatim? Plextor’s website doesn’t seem to have a list of compatible CD-Rs to test this drive. Could the problem be a bad batch of Prodisc CD-Rs? Anyone else have problems reading Prodisc CD-Rs?
