Trouble with Plextor 708A DVD RW

  Stonechatz 20:32 18 Mar 2004

It wrote me 2 x DVDs for jpegs backup which worked - now I am attempting to backup mp3s, and all manner of probs - including NO SEEK and 'verification-of-data' failures. I got the firmware upgrade at - which emntioned possible workaround of the NO SEEK error - but with DVD-R media costing extortionate prices - its now getting prohibitively expensive hoping that "the next one will do it!" :)) Anyone else been down this path ... ?

Using PCWorld own-brand 25 DVD Spindle 1x -R discs ... Win XP - all USB upgrades in place, 3.5Gb spare on HDD, and 512Mb memory. DVD RW is via 5.25" external USB 2.0 caddy.
