Firmware for PX-800A 4 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 0
I have a Plextor PX-800A but I can't seem to find any updated firmware for it. I bought some Philips DL discs and they don't work with the drive as I get an "invalid media" error when trying to write to them. I hoped to update the firmware and make the drive compatible with the media.

ANy help would be appreciated.

I don't think that there was ever any firmware for th PX-800A, unless you want to somehow force the Optiarc firmware. But even then, I don't think there will be much of a difference. The recommended dual layered media for this particular model is Mitsubishi/Verbatim. I wouldn't suggest trying to make the Phillips media work. Just go to Microscenter and get some Verbatims instead.

Aloha Karma,I have the 800A and was told that it is really a NEC product and that's why Plextor has nothing on their wedsite about it. I think that is not right to sell a product and not support it. Aloha, Wildog

This is the same what i am thinking about this support.
It's my 2th burner of Plextor and it piss me on, when I see this politic.
I have 3 LG burner with no problems all about that and if You by
one You pay only 30% of the price of plextor.
Their products work fine.

Guys, this is an OEM model. I'm sorry you're having such luck with it. Just use media that is on the recommended disc list and you should be fine.
