Question about Computers & Internet

My Plextor PX-230A CD RW Drive just stopped working. When I put a CD in the drive, the green run light just stays lit as if it trying to read the disk and eventually stops without anything happening. Nothing was recently added to / deleted from the computer. Is the drive just shot?

At first my Plextor PX-760A can read CD, DVD5, and DVD9. But after couple of years, it reads CD and DVD9 not DVD5 anymore


this is called aging effect. different-2 wave lengths are required to read and write different type of disc. these different wavelength rays are emitted by a lense iside every dvd player or drive so as the time passes lense weakens its ability and can not emit the required wavelength to read that type of disc.
so no need to panic either u repair ur dvd drive lense or get it replaced with a new one. hope it willl be helpfull.

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

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

The plextor dvdr px 708a stopped working


Hi,

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,

Plextor PX-716UF


Go to the manufacturer's website and download and install the latest firmware.

Is the drive appearing in My computer with a drive letter?

If it isn't:
1. click Start, point to Run, type diskmgmt.msc, and then click OK
2. If you see your drive listed without a letter, right click on it and assign it a new drive letter
