We have received several emails asking whether Plextor 4/12 supports overburning. Visitors of the CDRinfo website claim that the drive overburns but it soon reports a hardware error and stops at 99%..

I called Acer and they said their is a problem. So now i have to get my drive replaced cause they said you can't downgrade the firmware. Please post this so other people don't have to get their drive replaced like i have to.."
