i've just bought a plextor px-712A dvd writer. bought this one for two reasons, , because of the pc advisor review and , because of the bundled software and specifically pinnacle studio 9 which i believe is brilliant. guess what? everything loads fine except the studio 9 which keeps asking for a serial number which does not appear anywhere. not on the dvd writer box , not on any packaging and not on the enclosed cd sleeve which is where it is supposed to be. what awaste of money! anyone out there got any ideas or had the same problem. i don't feel like having to spend out more money to buy this software separately.
thanks guys. picklesy, there is a serial number on the disc: it's two letters and three numbers only and as there are 4 boxes required for the serial number it wont recognise this serial number and wont let me install. i suppose i'll have to ring pinnacle next week. unless of course your serial number on the disc is also similar to mine.
