Question about Plextor PX-708A DVD±RW Burner

3 Answers

The Plextor PX810SA arrived today - no instructions, no manual - there is a strange 3 foot red cable with small plugins on both ends... 2 'sort-of' labels: "ROHS" & "CROSS OVER" - not a clue as to any of this. I suppose the "SA" stands for SATA - my hard drives are SATA's - so?

Greetings,

The cable that came with the product is a SATA Cable and you have to connect the Plextor to a SATA connection just like your Hard Drives.

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

Yes thats SATA, sata supports hard drives and cd/Dvd drives also, you will need to connect it to a sata port or buy another sata controller for pci.

    my burner also goes to sata, the installation is pretty simple,



    insert the dvd drive into the pc case, screw it in. and connect the cables.

    if your out of sata ports you can get a pci card like this

    sata power on the left sata data on the right.



    if you don't have the power connector you need a converter.

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., http://www.wimmedia.com/duplication-replication.php (Western Imperal Magnetics has good rates for many-at-a-time duplication).

I would like to make this a slave so that my 500 GB PATA HardDrive will be the master as that has my operating system and the Plextor PX-716A drive will be the slave?


You need to configure the jumper at the back of the drive as shown in the following picture

Configure the CD/DVD drive as slave, configure the hard drive as Master.

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.

How can i make the audio out work on the Plextor px-708uf?


Hi,
dependant on your Sound Card.
do you have the cable connected From The DVD Drive ( spdif digital ) Or analogue audio Cable ? this is a thin cable usually grey/white cable coloured red/black/ground or earth.
This connects from The DVD to the motherboard ( CD ) Or to your Sound Card ( CD Or IN ) If you don,t have this Cable connected you won,t get Sound from DVD To Sound card or on-board Sound from The motherboard. Also check your sound-cards drivers Are Installed correctly. Finally open the sound manager In My Computer, And check that a device is selected, Or Isn,t Muted.

This should Solve Your 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,
