Hi. I'm a newbie here
After google around, i have finally arrived on this website. After read a lot of threads, it seems that many people having a problem with their PX-716SA drive, i.e. 2 out of 4 716sa is a bad drive. So, i'm wondering...
1) how would i check if my 716sa drive is a good (quality) drive or bad drive that need to be replaced?
2) i have read some of threads say that there is a compatible problem w/ nvidia nForce 4 ide controller & 716sa (i.e. it recognize 716sa as 716a), however, PlexTool 2.23 (lastest) see it as 716sa so is this means ide controller does not run 716sa at its max performance
3) Is there a problem w/ 1.07 firmware? I have 1.05 but i plan to upgrade to 1.07 but it seems that some people have a problem w/ 1.07. If encounter a problem w/ 1.07 after upgraded, can i flash 1.05 to replace it (sorry i don't know much about these stuffs). Also, if i flash my drive to region-free and then upgrade to 1.07, would it still be a region protected?
Finally, can I use PlexTool to do all the cd/dvd recording/burning instead of Nero or Roxio? I have Nero & Roxio (plextor's sample software) but I want to use the software that optimize 716sa drive.
Thanks in advance
