[QUOTE=Adamkingkong;2094664]But the odd thing is that it shows the firmware version to be 1.59 released/installed 12/15/05. But when I checked on the Plextor website. It says the latest is 1.11. Could I have some hacked version of firmware or something else?[/QUOTE]
Something else is correct!
I guess your drive comes from an disc duplicator or disc copy station.
If you search this forum you’ll find different posts describing a V 1.5x firmware on CD and / or DVD burners.
It sould be possible to flash the 1.11 on your drive, I guess. I never made this because all my Plextors are normal retail or bulk versions…
