Have you tried the latest firmware upgrade, 1.j04 firmware and enabling also autostrategy might improve results

is it not dangerous? i
how do you upgrade a firmware outside of windows, because the last time I did it it completely disabled dma and it couldn't get enabled at all.
maybe it's safe until plextor europa has it online?

First post...great site!

I'm very interested in the PX-716A but I would like to be able to burn and read DVD-RAM media. Is there any chance that this might be added with firmware or is it imposible?

Thanks!

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.
