PX 760 problems

Hey people…

I have a Plextor 760 SATA drive and whenever I try to burn something in Nero or Imgburn, the Plex just gets stuck at the leadin without burning anything. Does anyone have any idea what this is from? I tried different media, to no avail. I don’t know what to do anymore to get this drive to function properly.

Best Regards

Hi Mia762 and welcome to CDFreaks. S ATA optical drives are very picky about S ATA controllers and drivers. Can you give us more info on the Motherboard and or what chipset you have the drive connected to? Also see this thread on Motherboard compatibility. There is also a thread hereabout S ATA lead in problems more towards the end of the thread. Hope this helps.:slight_smile:

I am having exactly the same problem… althogh i did get it to burn once with Plextools… although now its refusing also and again it gets stuck on the lead-in …

Hey there, thanks for the welcome.

My mobo is a ASUS M2N32-SLIDeluxe on n590 chipset…

Are you runninig the Plextor off of the Northbridge or Southbridge controller.

NVIDIA nForce® 590 SLI MCP
Northbridge: NVIDIA® C51XE
Southbridge: NVIDIA® MCP55PXE

I would suggesst rolling back your nVidia IDE/S ATA drivers as this is the easiest thing to check first. Here’s how.
