Re: 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

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

Go to and download the firmware update. If you have the 708A-UF model, make sure you install the firmware update using a USB cable. Using a firewire cable to do the update can cause a data corruption problem with the firmware update.

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

I want to record a dvd - how can i do it?

You have three options.
1: Use the built-in burning tool of your drive. Put in a blank DVD, and start dragging files onto it. Right click on the DVD and press "finalize" when done.

2: Download the program "Nero Burning Rom" and follow its instructions. The upside of this, is that it offers burning modes that will let you play some video files on a regular DVD player.
Note: The program costs money, but the free trial lasts long enough to see if you like it.

3: Use CD Burner XP (if works with DVDs too). It is free and has a TON of options, but is a little hard to use for beginners. I'd recommend reading the help file.

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,
