so much for compatible media.....plex drives have been going down in terms of compatibility. I've had 1210 plex for long now, and 708A quite recently, both drives worked well initially, with 1210 being more robust even now, 708A is so choosy, that it is simply refusing to read the same disks it was for last 8-9 months, wht with the firmware numbers increasing, the compat. is decreasing day by day!!!!.
My Asus drive used to be so robust, it would read any cd i provided, but since plex 708a, I've been miserable, and to tlk of tech supp, its not worth mentioning.
I still have plex supplied verbatim cdrw which 708a refuses to oblige. wht to do with tht. (1210 still reads verbatim, thank god!!)
