  1. I INSTALLED THE DVD-R PLEXTOR PX-716A,THE BIOS AND THE CONTROL PANEL OF THE WINDOWS RECOGNIZE IT BUT WHEN I PUT A CD IN THE DVD
    THE SCREEN TURNS BLUE AND A MESSAGE APPEARS:

    MACHINE CHECK EXCEPTION
    CHECK YOUR HARDWARE ...etc
    CHECK THE CABLE CONNECTIONS...etc
    STOP:0X0000009C(0X00000004,0X80545FF0,0XB2000000,OX00070F0F)

    I TRIED TO UPGRADE THE FIRMWARE FROM PLEXTOR BUT THE RESULT WAS THE SAME
    H E L P !!!

    AMD 64 3800
    MSI K8N SLI PLATINUM
    GEIL 2GB
    MSI 6800 ULTRA SLI(X2)
    WINDOWS XP SP2

    That was a small BSOD. Did you check the cable? Tried a different one?

    716A cable

    Did you use the 80-pin cable that came with the drive? If not ue this cable as it ensures reliable data xfers. Secondly pull the cable and ensure that there are o bent pins etc and that the cable was inserted correctly. FIonally is this the first or second drive on the chain (master or slave)? How do you have the jumper configured? Does it match? What about Device Manager, is it showing the drive correctly?

    Finally the manual describes a way to conduct an internal selftest and test burn. It does not require the 80-pin cable to be connected, merely power. Check this to see if you have a defective unit. My first unit was bad but the replacement drive works like a charm.
