I have seen that plextor 716A supports only booktype Dvd+r and Dvd+rdl.How i can do it to support booktype Dvd+rw?


Same situation for all Plextor DVD units. Plextor must enable this via firmware, and it is encouraged to perhaps also improve +RW compatibility in some cases.

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 chipsets

. . . have a ASUS motherboard with Intel chipsets



Does that mean, as long as you have an INTEL Chipset m.board you are ok with PX-716A using UDMA 4???

Also another question, since I don't know much about the matter....

Will everything work as it should if you have PX-716A as primary Master using UDMA 4 and on the same IDE Cable
have a DVD-Rom (reader) Primary Slave using UDMA 2???

thanks in advance!

enzo78, you are asking things that I unfortunaly do notknow...

Maybe you will find an answer if you ask the question at the links I put above
and there are also very competent people on this thread who are going to read you very soon ...

I just noticed that people answred in these links tell that everything is working on their ASUS motherboard with Intel chipsets.
See for example linls like this:
http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=806223&postcount=6
http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=806480&postcount=9

At these links there are also discussions about connecting the PX-712SA ou 716SA (serial ATA) on a motherboard (south bridge)

It is an interesting matter that I just discover

I've been looking at the links that you posted... Thanks by the way for them! ;)
Reading the threads there I got the impression that this is a problem for people with mother boards that aren't Intel
Chipsets, so being sure of it I decided to ask...

hopefully someone in this forum knows something about it...
Otherwise I will probably ask it on the other site... :)

@ enzo78, you are free to ask to any forum you like too, unfortunaly we mostly test the drives with Intel based motherboards, so we didn't had any problem with the PX-716A...

im looking into getting this drive, but the lowest price ive seen it for is about $119 on eBay. i was wondering, is the 8MB buffer really that helpful, and enough of a reason to get this? thanks

edit: burning 900MB to a CD-R is pretty cool too

No, a 2mb buffer is fine. I do have a Plextor now, but got it for the booktype feature. Don't get me wrong, I love the drive... it is pricey. Probably would have been happy with the BenQ too, but I am kinda glad I opted for the Plextor. Always loved their drives... Used 'em way back when I was Mr. SCSI. If you can afford it, you won't be disappointed... If not get the cheaper BenQ DW1620A...

Either way you should be happy.

Well the 8MB buffer won't do much good if the overall system is slow...
