Firmware 1.08 allows bit setting to DVD-ROM type on DVD+R discs. I used Nero CDVDSpeed (3.61 I think) to set the drive up to bitset to DVD-ROM and it works fine.

UPDATE TO PREVIOUS COMMENTS:

As I suspected, I got a refurb model from Plextor as a replacement to my defective 708A. The unit they sent me was manufactured 6 months before the unit it replaced! I think thats pretty terrible customer service.

I've received upgraded models from previous manufacturers when an original piece of hardware failed. An intel motherboard I was using quite working and Intel sent me an upgraded replacement model. A creative CD-ROM went bad and they sent me a 48X to replace my 36X. An ATI Radeon 9600 went bad and they sent me a 9600pro.

Just all around crap service from Plextor and I wont be buying another drive from them again.

I bought this drive in May 2004. I've never put it through heavy use but it was a great drive and burned everything for about 9 months. Like some other users here, it just quit working. Wouldnt read any media, DVD or CD and sure wouldnt write.

I didnt bother emailing and went straight to a tech support call like their web site says. After being on hold for a while it didnt take tech support 5 minutes to admit the drive was bad (5 green blinks) and issued me a tech support number. I filled out the RAM request forum with the tech support number and within 48 hours I received an RMA number and shipping instructions via email. Im currently waiting for my replacement drive.

I am very dissapointed this drive didnt have anymore shelf life. I guess Im destined for a refurb model with little or no warranty remaining. Unless this replacement performs exceptionally well, I wont be buying Plextor again. For years they put out great drive after great drive but there are far too many reports of problems for me to go back to them in the future.

I really don't know how to rate the 708a. It has been awesome for the 11 months I have had it until today. It no longer will play or burn DVDs. I ran the diagnostic as outlined on the website and got the dreaded 1 blink error. I will have to call for an RMA in the morning. I loved this drive while it worked, but I expect something I paid over $200 for to last more than 11 months.

I'm sorry but you are wrong.

Like one person said before:
"Can do bit setting!!! Just install new firmware (1.08) and PlexTools Professional v2.17, and in drive Settings, go to andvanced and you see "Change booktype for DVD+R"
Burn with your favorite progie, like nero "

So you will have to use Plextools (2.17 and above /firmware 1.08) to change the booktype setting.

ACHTUNG:

Booktype is NOT avabile for the PX-708a with Firmware 1.08 and Nero 6.6.1.3 ( 2004.12.14 )

The info of this Page is wrong !!! (very sorry about that..)

I hate to do this since the drive has been working for me for a long time. I bought it in January 2004 and it's been great, until it stopped working. While it was new, I burned everything! Good media, cheap media, anything, it would burn no questions asked! No errors, not a single coaster. Got the firmware update, done everything I could, but I guess even the greatest things break down eventually. It started with reading certain DVDs. It just wouldn't read them. Brand new, fresh out of the box, not a single scratch and still, it wouldn't read them. Then the cd-recording went halo, I got cd's with messed up tracks, songs cutting in and out, and finally the dvd recording started messing up. You could actually see it on the media. The burned dvd's had weird "shapes" on the dye. None of my standalone dvd players would go through more than 10 mins of the movie. And so my adventure with the precious plextor ended. :( Now I need a new recorder, and if I knew for sure that the newer 12x model wouldn't do the same, I would go for it, but for now, I guess I'll have to go with the Pioneer. Sorry :(

I have this drive for few months and always used memorex DVD+R rated at 4X. The Plextor always burn at 8X for me, which is real sweet. I just bought an LG GSA-4120B yesterday and tried same blanks knowing that LG is 12X DVD+R but it maxed my blanks at 4X. I guess that what makes plextor stand out, gets out that most with what it has.

Can't do bit setting! Big problem for me as my stand alone (Mintek 1600) requires it. Otherwise a flawless drive. Burned nearly everything I threw at it w/o error. Burned generic cheap media at 4x, and good media at 8x. No errors.

My biggest issue is the bit setting. I need it, and the Plextor CANNOT do it, nor does it appear that Plextor will fix this. They are a member of the DVD+R specification commitee and will adhere stritcly to the guidlines according to their website.

Well, I don't quite know how to rate this. I purchased the drive in November of 2003. All along I was wondering why on earth people were having trouble with certain (usually cheap) media. My drive burned everything I put in it, even incredibly cheap Admeco brand stuff I bought here in Japan. Then, one day in early July (in middle of a CD-RW burn), it just quit. I ran the plextor diagnostic like you are supposed to. I determined my unit would not read (or write obviously) to CDs. Any CDs. DVDs were Ok. After some quick research on CDfreaks.com, this turned out to be a rather common problem. However, my experience with tech support was not a good one. First I got a canned email telling me to use canned air to blow into it. Did it and wasted $5. Next response was since it could read and write to DVDs, it must be my media. Now, I know they have their "recommended" stuff but I'm no idiot. The same Fuji CDRs (on their compatibilty list by the way) I used for months would not read or write. A few days later, I made a WMV file of me actually putting a blank (compatible) CDR in the drive and it not working. Another few days passed and I inquired if they saw the email and they said no file of that type would get through their firewall. I finally got my RMA and returned it and just got it back today. It should have never taken that long to get an RMA. It's kind of like driving a new automobile down the road and having the door fall off. Don't you think after more people claimed their door fell off you, as a manufacturer, would start to believe them instead of doubting? I certainly would have hated to be the first guy to complain about the drive not reading CDs. My advice: It's a great drive when it works. And if it breaks CALL THEM on the phone, don't waste your time with email. I basically paid top dollar for a drive that didn't burn anywhere near 100 (probably not even 50) DVDs and got a refurb 9 months later. If I wanted a refurb or cheap a$$ drive, I would have bought a Lite-on or checked out the clearance bin at tigerdirect....

Great with DVD. Poor with low quality CD-R. Poor with low speed CD-RW.
Powerec works great. Buffer underrun protection works.
No DVD coasters, only two CD coasters.

Works perfectly on everything I have thrown at it. Around 50 DVD's burnt so far and not one coaster yet.

This drive has burned every single DVD blank i have put in it. The only problems i have had where the 2 discs that where dirty with prints or fuzz. It burns some 4X +Rs at 8X with no problems. I do on the fly copys from my other drive with no problems. I don't even have to worry about making coasters if i am multitasking because i have totally emptied the drives buffer before and the discs come out fine.

I use DVD Decrypter to rip, DVD Shrink to re-author and Nero 6.3 to burn. It will burn a 4X DVD in 13 minutes 8X is about 8-9 minutes.

I have upgraded the firmware to 1.06 but never had a problem with 1.04. I don't know why people are saying they have problems with this drive i havent had 1.

I agree with mark when he said plextor sucks!!!! I returned this drive why should I have to use old software so I can get this drive to work and why is it so picky with media. Lets not forget plextor said no to 8x with - media, what's up with that??? Let me also tell you about how this drive makes coasters. So I bought a Opotrite DD0401 and with the money I saved a 100 pack of G04's. Lets not forget I didn't have to stand on my head to get it to burn. Worked right out of the box. So if your looking for a drive pass on this one. But take a look at this one: http://store.yahoo.com/livewarehouse/opdd8xdvdrbe.html
In case you didn't know Optorite said by the end of april new firmware to burn - media @ 8x. : )

Absolutely fabulous drive. Burns DVD-R at rated speed of 4x and DVD+ at 8x. Had it about a month and burned 20 Memorex DVD-R's with not a problem. This is my first DVD burner and it installed in 10 minutes and was up and running in another 10. Have used CloneDVD 1.3 & 2, Nero 6.0, DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink, and Roxio Easy CD and DVD Creator 6-all with no problem. To be honest I've only burned the one DVD+ disk that came with the drive but no problem with that one.
