After having finally figured out Autostrategy, here is the list of media supported by the PX-716A. Autostrategy only works on SOME known media. (The reason for this is that Plextor believes some media vary in quality due to manufacturing). How can you tell which Known media may use Autostrategy? The list below, which I obtained from the Plextor website, shows media that is written into the firmware. Some of this media, denoted by “supported by autostrategy” (see below) can utilize Autostrategy to achieve a better burn. Most media, denoted by “Recommended” or “Compatible” does NOT use Autostrategy.
