Plextor px-716 - Firmware 104

Postby dellboy on Mon Jan 24, 2005 11:21 am

HI,
i have downloaded and installed the latest firmware for the plextor.
i think this allows the plextor to read & write dvd-r d/l discs,
correct me if i am wrong,
in plextools which i am using the latest version, under feature
it does not show dvd-r support, also mount rainer is showing absent.
firmware 103 showed it used the mount rainer facility.

Try InfoTool. It said that the drive didn't support Mt. Rainier with the 1.03 or 1.04 firmware. I haven't checked to see what PlexTools says about DVD-R DL. It might need a new version.

Yeah Ian, it says nothing about DVD-R DL so we will have to wait for the next PlexTools update.

PlexTools don't get any data from the drive, and its capability page is one of the most useless i've ever seen....

cdrecord lists a profile 0x0015, which is DVD-R DL sequential recording, as you can see on page 239 of the current MtFuji6 Proposal
