Question about Rimage Network Publisher 4000 Burner

1 Answer

RImage Desk Top 4000

Hi I would like to know if I can change the burners in this product from the 4 Plextor 12/4/32 CDRW drives to 4 DVDW drives. Does the system support this and if so would there need to be any firmware updates? Also would I have to use Plextor drive or could I use a different brand? I tried to contact Rimage but to no avail. Thanks Victor

    Thanks but I wasn't asking about physicality I wanted to know more about the firmware aspect of this unit. Also the hard drive is irrelevant as the unit uses a reader. What would be involved software/firmware wise with this upgrade?

As far as compatability goes, if they are all fitted the same as a conventional pc via an ide cable, then any drive will fit, but for the purpose of burning DVD's ensure you have enough hard drive space for caching the images that they burn from and make sure your memory is large enough to cope.

The Plextor PX810SA arrived today - no instructions, no manual - there is a strange 3 foot red cable with small plugins on both ends... 2 'sort-of' labels: "ROHS" & "CROSS OVER" -...

Yes thats SATA, sata supports hard drives and cd/Dvd drives also, you will need to connect it to a sata port or buy another sata controller for pci.

The device is CD - RW Drive Plextor Plexwriter Premium TLA # 0107 1- is there a way to change the lens? 2- is there a way to know if the problem is electrical or mechanical?

1 - no, the lens is fitted permanently on the reading head.
2 - check in the Device Manager - if the burner is correctly recognized and reported as functional then it's a mechanical problem, not electrical.

Plextor px-708a will not recognize disks. Just removed a second DVD drive from the system and jumpered px-708a as MASTER. The system recognizes the drive; it just will not read.

as you've changed the configuration of the drive from slave to master you need to go into the bois and change the settings for the drive so that it reads the px as master cd drive

My HP computer does not recognize the Plextor PX-880U DVD Drive

Try getting new firmware from Plextor and see if that doesn't help the problem.

New burner is taking 6 hours to burn dvd

Check the DMA settings on your DVD device, usually found under Device Manager->Properties. It sounds as though DMA is OFF, causing this extremely long burn time. You could also check your BIOS settings for the Hard drive(s) and DVD devices you have installed. Make sure that DMA is enabled for all of them. You'll see increased performance when enabled and set to ON.
Good luck!

The plextor dvdr px 708a stopped working


Thanks for coming to FixYa, The problem you have is either a well documented software problem, corrupted plextor software or a failing drive.

Click the below link, then scroll down and click the "Fix It" button. Follow the onscreen instructions, restart when it's done and see if your drive re-appears. If it does, you're done, if it doesn't work then try re-installing the plextor software. Again if that doesn't work then your drive is most likely failed and you should replace it.

Hope this helps FixYa,
