Which is the best (more reliable, with less bugs) version of nero and InCD? I want to use it with Plextor Premium and Plextor PX-708A. Thanks!
Nero551054 Probably …
There’s a problem with some versions of Nero when writing to DVD+R media. You’ll get an error when writing the lead-out. The conventional wisdom around here is to use 188.8.131.52 and to avoid 184.108.40.206 like the plague. I haven’t seen anyone with a PX-708a post as to whether 220.127.116.11 is also safe or not.
If it’s version 6 you want, 18.104.22.168 is the one to avoid and my understanding is 22.214.171.124 is safe.
I’ve stuck with 126.96.36.199 because I know that one works. I may upgrade to 6 but from what I’ve read here, that may be more trouble than it is worth at this time.
My experience : 5.5 versions are much much more reliable than 6.0 versions at the moment & my 551054 version(latest 5.5 build ) seems flawless at the moment , I hope of course !

My recent experience is that the only version of Nero which works reliably with the Plextor 708a is 188.8.131.52 which came on the CD with the drive.
This is also supported by plextor.be support, who warn not to upgrade the version which came on the CD.
I have tried several versions of the Nero 6 series on the Plestor 708a, and none of them work for me, including 184.108.40.206. But I must admit that I neglected to clean out the registry with the Nero Cleaner when changing to the various versions of the 6 series. I did however use the Nero Cleaner before installing the recommended version of 220.127.116.11. Perhaps using the Nero Cleaner before installing version 18.104.22.168 may have made a difference - but now I will never know for sure.
I made an error in my post above when I referred to version 22.214.171.124 which doesn’t exist. I mean to say 126.96.36.199 which is the version I’m using. If you’ve got a PX708a you just might be wasting some +R media in the future if you burn with anything newer, as Nosmo King says.
As for me, I’m happy to wait patiently until I hear from Plextor and others who’ve tried it out!
