    Umm...with the older Plextor drives they were known to read scratched discs but not anymore. Plextor no longer manufactures their own drives.Their drives are rebadged Pioneers or Liteon's or even Samsung. Best place to ask is at the old cdfreaks.com Plextor forum.

    Plextor PX-712SA in my current rig (which is not a newish drive - and was made by Plextor) does not read as well as ancient Panasonic (2X DVD) burner. That thing can read just about anything when all others fail.
