I'm new to dvd burning. I recently bought a plextor 708a. I also recently bought a load of blank 2x speed dvd disks. The dvd disks are made by Infiniti. They are the whitetop variety. I was informed they are a quality disk. I want error free burning and i see on forums like this one that the slower you burn, the less errors you get. Maybe i'm wrong? Anyway, basically when i put one of these disks into my burner, it can't be accessed. It just keeps spinning up and slowing down and so on. What could be wrong? A setting on my drive? A firmware upgrade needed? A batch of faulty disks? These disks work perfectly in a friends drive. I've downloaded a firmware update off the plextor site and will try that 2nite. Please help, it sucks big time cos all i effectively have is a load of mini frisbees!!
