If it won't read any CDs at all, Music, Data, etc. then the CD Laser has died. These have a dual laser system, one for CD and one for DVD. You will need to get a new drive if you want CD functionality.

Sorry for the bad news!

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

http://www.majorgeeks.com/BurnAware_Free_d5839.html

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

I gotta plextor 712a dvd drive; it does read other media except dvd. blink rate is 2 while color is amber. what should i do as a fix?


Does it read _any_ DVD drive, especially commercially-produced ones?
If not, then it's time to spend $40 to purchase a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

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

My PLEXTOR DVDR PX-708A DOESN'T RECOGNIZE CD.


Go to Plextor.com 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.

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.

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
