you can wait for a new firmware to come out!
sometimes plextor greatly improves reading performance with new firmware
or you can try different software you never know if its the software or the hardware
you know that lots of people talk about protected discs and backing them up like they are pros and the only thing they know is to put the cd inside the drive and press a few butons in clonecd, they don't even think about trying other software before posting the most stupid posts i have ever seen.
i understand you you got a new drive and it doesn't perform as you expected and you think that its broken.(i would think the same) but calm down and eliminate one by one all the failure possibilities before you start going crazy.
and never beleive too much in the posts you read just because someone has a problem similar to yours it doesn't mean that it's the same prob
(lots of different pc configs and software)
and btw i have followed the link you posted and i have read the posts, thats why i wrote this.
you know that those cds may be copy protected and its natural that they beave like that !
