Question about Plextor PX-760A DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

Burnt a few CD-rs but now no burning.

I have updated the firmware to 1.07 but even before that all of the sudden I cannot get my Plextor 760A to burn any music. Does anyone have a solution?

Firmware update

You didn't say if you updated the bios and if you did what were the results. It sounds like the update never occured.

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.

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.

Sony dru-840a firmware

Seems i "downgraded" from a Plextor 716A. My Sony DRU-840A refuses to burn in multi session mode. I bought the retail version of Nero 8. Now i am suggested to update the DRU-840 firmware. Either the firmware update doesn't exist, or its hidden really well on the Sony website.... Maybe i should just throw this Sony away and replace with another Plextor... AHA!!! I think I'll do that!!!!

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.
