I am hoping i can get some help from you experienced Plextor users
Now i have installed it on my Nforce 4 Motherboard and it will not write ATALL
Thanks in advance
Searching something on Page 10 of this thread I came accross your post dated from january the 15th where you said that your PX-716A is reading bt not writing at all
So it reminded me about 2 threads I saw recently about motherboard compatibilty with recent Plextor and Pioneer drives
So have a look at these links:
1°) Plextor /Motherboard Compatibility List Contributions http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=120684
2°) PX-716A problem on A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=122074
3°) and maybe search around in the whole "Plextor forum" here: http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=43
I had already 3 people on my forum in France who solved their problem with these links ...
I am not very experienced with these hardware problems, but I undestood that people solved the problem simply by forcing UDMA 2 instead of 3 or 4 through a setting in Windows
So it not really a problem with the Plextor PX-716A itself: it is just because the drive forces UDMA 4 at installation and the motherboard cannot adapt or something like that ...
Maybe your problem is already solved. If not I wish you good luck.
I cannot help you much more because I have a ASUS motherboard with Intel
