    I need a little help with this one. I built my own system and have 2 sata HD's (no raid) and a sata Plextor DVD-RW.
    Windows detects everything OK, but the DVD burner seems to hang a lot of the applications and I have a lot of failed discs when I try to use it.
    After trying to troubleshoot this, I noticed in disk management that the drive is listed as a Plextor px716a, not px716sa.
    I went to plextors site and I don't see any drivers for this drive. If I read it right, it says that windows provides the driver.
    Any ideas on where to go from here?

    Thanks for the reply. I've already been through Plextor support. We tested the drive with a burn test to make sure the drive operated properly, which it did. They then said maybe it's a problem with my SATA controller. I don't think thats it since the HD's are using SATA just fine. I checked the drivers and and they are up to date (using Intel 925xe board). They don't seem real willing to help unless there is something wrong with the physical drive itself.
