I tried almost everything within my power to make the PX- 716 work :
connected to a different systeem (P4 based), connect to onboard IDE
controllers and tested in external case (firewire /usb2.0), but no avail.
The drive was almost DOA as it doesn't read any CD or DVD anymore : when I
insert a CD/DVD (blank, pressed, written), the drive is unable to read anything
and the LED turns amber and blinks in sequences of 2 blinks.
Plextor does put a lot of bad drives on the market : their QA is just worthless ! Do they even have a QA dept. ???
This my 4th Plextor DVD-writer : have 708A, 2x 712A and now 716.
From every purchase, I had to RMA the first drive, the replacement I got each
time was always a lot better. This means buying 4 dvd-rw from Plextor is 4
times RMA !!! Unbelievable !! :Z :Z :Z :a
