I have a plextor 4824a. I bought verbatim 16-24 cd-rw but it wont'burn. Nero refuse to stard burning and clone cd gives me an error in calibration area.
I have the same problem using a 16-24 cd-rw produced by plextor!!
Firmware is 1.4
Any idea??

I also own one of those drives and I had the exact same problem but with memorex media. The problem was that the media is crap... I got the Sony Rw 10x and they work just fine... I mean, ther drive works just fine... When did You bought the drive? It could be it...

In that case, i quite don't know... I haven't use 24x-16x media yet... Haven't found any... The ones I found, just didn't work... I have a friend that has the previous model, 32x16x48x i guess, and the media that came with the drive, a plextor one, works like charm... I haven't tried it one mine, but i guess it should work cause i haven't had any kind of problems with my drive...
Have you tried all the settings that people hav sujested? Like setting the drive as master, dma,... Have you tried plextools? Look into the settings... You might find something...

Good Luck!!!
