I have just bought the plextor 24x and I am quite happy about it .
But , I have a little problem
Whenever I insert a blank cd , when the lens of the burner is moving before stopping : it can take few second or more , sometimes it will fail and therefore the led will flicker (green led).
What I found strange is that the burner lens can have different behaviour with a same blank cd ! (For example , I have inserted a blank mitsui cd : 1st time it gave me an error (disc not recognised) , 2nd time : disc was well recognised after few second)
In all cases , I have verified that there were absolutely no dust on the blank media I have inserted.
I guess that most of this is due to the Optical Power Calibration (feature of PoweRec II) , but I really find it very slow and not effective since it can fail/succeed analysing a same blank cd.
So , I would be pleased if all owner of the Plextor 2410TA can tell me if they had same result when inserting blank cd .
Also , please tell me which cd brands (74mn and 80mn) you are totally satisfy with .
Last thing , my plextor 2410A is from July 2001 and TLA is #100
