I use a PLEXTOR DVD-R PX-716A, and it worked fien for me up through December. I suddenly cannot burn CDs, It has problems reading CDs, and the drive is registered as always in use when it has a CD in it. Also, when it has a CD in it, it flashes the amber lights twice. The official FAQ thing said flashing amber lights twice meant the “Auto Adjustment Failed”, also stating it “Cannot read a stamped disc or initialize a CD-R/RW disc because the drive cannot properly configure the focus and track adjustment settings.”
Well, from what I can tell, this really sucks. The solution to this, as listed in the FAQ: http://www.plextor.com/english/support/plexhelper/blink/solution4.html
I want to try to get help from tech support before i try and take the drive apart and run the self diagnostic test, as that probably wont help me since i alrdy know the problem, and i want to see if i can get help here before i try to get help from tech support.
Any help I could get would be greatly appreciated. I really dont know much about any of this, i just ran into a problem and am trying to fix it.
