Plextor PX716a errors when writing or verifing dvd

I have a plextor px716a dvd burner. It used to work fine. Now when I burn a dvd I usually get an error either burning or verifing the dvd. Also the verifing is usually done at a very low transfer rate. I have cleaned the burner with a kodak lens cleaner but that didn't help. I opened the unit (I used to
be an electronic technician) and didn't see anything obviously wrong. Plextor does not repair these units. I really like the drive because it reports C0 and C1 errors. I have been using nero rom burning 6 all along. Any ideas?

I have a Plextor PX-820SA DVD-CD internal burner. The drive reads and writes to CD's, but will not read or write to DVD's (I have tried several different types/brands of DVD media). Please...

this might be because you have not selected the option to burn an audio or data dvd or your burning software does not support dvd burning
there are plenty of free burning software programs on the internet

BurnAware Free is one of the most popular free CD, DVD, Blu-ray Disc burning software available for Windows.
Using this program you can easily create and burn Audio and MP3 CD, Data and DVD-Video disc, ISO and Cue Image,
erase or format rewritable disc, copy your CD or DVD to ISO image.
hope this helps

How much does it cost for the 1 to 3 duplicator

Probably a *LOT* more than just using your correct CD-writing software to tell it to burn '3' copies, serially, rather than using a Plextor Dupsonic to burn '3' simultaneous copies.

Probably, a *LOT* more than "outsourcing" your disk-copying needs,
e.g., (Western Imperal Magnetics has good rates for many-at-a-time duplication).
