Mount the PX-750A Drive
Heres an overview of what youll do to mount the drive: 1. Turn OFF your computer system. 2. Set the jumpers for your new PX-750A drive, if necessary. 3. Mount the drive into an available drive bay inside the computer system. 4. Make all necessary cabling connections: IDE cable, power cable, and audio cable. 5. Turn your computer system ON. The following pages give more details for this procedure.
Open the Computer and Prepare for Installation
To determine whether your PX-750A will be a Master or a Slave, open your computer and examine the IDE connections to the motherboard. To open the computer: 1. Before proceeding, make sure the power to your computer and any external peripherals is OFF and your computer is UNPLUGGED from its power source. 2. Remove your computers cover, following the directions provided by your computers manufacturer. Typically, this involves loosening or removing several screws on the back panel of your computer and sliding off the cover. See Figure 3 for an example.
Figure 3: Removing a typical computer's cover
Determine Your Existing IDE Configuration
With your computer open, determine the existing IDE configuration. You can do this by looking at the IDE ribbon cable (or cablesthere may be two) and seeing what is connected to them. One end of the IDE cable connects to the IDE port on your computers motherboard; and there are usually two other connectors for attaching peripheral devices such as a hard disk, DVD or CD-ROM drive, or your PX-750A drive. If there are two devices, one is configured as Master and the other the Slave, as indicated by the position of jumpers on the back of the drive. If your computer is set up for Cable Select, or CSEL, both devices will be jumpered as Cable Select. In older computers, this configuration required a special Cable Select cable. If there are two IDE cables, one is for the primary IDE bus and the other is for the secondary bus.
Before you install your PX-750A, your computers IDE configuration is usually one of the following: Configuration A: Hard disks connected as Master and Slave devices on primary IDE port; DVD or CD-ROM drive connected as the Master device on secondary IDE port. Configuration B: Hard disk connected as Master device and DVD or CD-ROM drive connected as Slave on the primary IDE port; nothing connected to secondary IDE port. Configuration C: Hard disk connected as Master device on primary IDE port; nothing connected to secondary IDE port. Configuration D: System uses special Cable Select cables; all devices are jumpered for Cable Select.
Set the Drives Mode Jumper
You specify your drive's Master, Slave, or Cable Select setting before installing it. You do this by changing the position of a jumper on the mode jumper block at the rear of the drive. Your drive ships from our factory with its mode jumper set to operate the PX-750A as a Master. This will work in most custom system configurations. If your computer is from a large OEM system manufacturer such as IBM, Hewlett Packard/Compaq, Dell, or Gateway, you will need to pay particular attention to whether the computer uses the Cable Select scheme.
NOTE: The jumper configuration on the drive has priority over Cable Select. So if the jumper of one device on a cable is set to Master, the jumper of the other device must be set for Slave. In this case, location of the devices on the cable is not important. If you have only one device, it must be set to Master or Cable Select, and it must be at the end of the cable.
Changing the Mode Jumper on Your PX-750A Drive
The drive arrives from the factory with its mode jumper set to Master. (A function is ON if the jumper is installed and OFF if the jumper is removed.)
Figure 6: Factory settings for mode jumper at the rear of the internal drive Changing to a Master, Slave, or Cable Select The Master/Slave/Cable Select setting for the drive is determined by the mode jumper. The jumper is placed over one of the sets of mode pins. To change the drive from Master to Slave or to Cable Select, you must move the jumper. 20
For example, to change the drive to be a Slave, move the jumper to the middle set of mode pins, leaving the other pins uncovered. To change the drive for Cable Select, move the jumper to the left set of mode pins. Note that if any device is jumpered as Cable Select, then both devices connected to that cable must be jumpered as Cable Select. (And if youre not using the newer 80-conductor IDE/ATA cable, the cable you use must be a special Cable Select cable.) Changing Jumper Settings To remove a jumper, pull it off with your fingers or a pair of needlenose pliers. To install a jumper, push it onto the jumper pins.
Figure 13: Removing the cover panel from a bay
4. Determine if you must install mounting rails on the sides of your drive. To do so, insert the drive into the open bay. If the drive fits tightly with little or no clearance on either side of the drive, you will not have to use mounting rails. The drive can be mounted directly into your computer. Go to step 6.
NOTE: Plextor does not provide rails. If you need rails, you can obtain them from the computer manufacturer or from a computer supply retail or mail-order store.
5. If you must use mounting rails, fasten the rails to the lower pair of holes as shown in Figure 14. (In some instances, you may need to fasten the rails to the upper set of holes.) After fastening the rails, check their positioning by sliding the drive into the bay before you mount the drive or connect any cables.
CAUTION: Be sure not to mistake the inner and outer face of the rail when attaching. Typically, the smooth side of the rail faces away from the drives chassis.
Figure 14: Installing mounting rails (if needed)
6. Plug one connector of the 80-conductor IDE/ATA cable into the IDE connector on the rear panel of the drive before you insert the drive into your computer. Then thread the cable through the front of the open bay and back toward the motherboard. The drive should slide smoothly into the bay. If it does not, check for obstructions in the bay and ensure the side rails are attached properly. 7. If not already connected, attach the other end of the IDE ribbon cable to the connector on the motherboard.
Figure 15: Connect one end of the IDE cable to the motherboard and the other end to the drive. If your Plextor drive is the only device on the cable, attach it at the end of the cable, leaving the center connector free.
CAUTION: With some IDE ribbon cables, it is easy to accidentally plug your IDE cable upside down into both your drive and the motherboard. Be sure you match the red stripe along one side of the IDE cable to Pin 1 on the motherboard and Pin 1 on the drive. (Pin 1 on the drive is closest to the power connector.) Note that each connector on most ribbon cables also has a key in the middle. This key should fit into a slot in the middle of each connector of the motherboard, your PX-750A drive, and any other internal IDE peripherals.
8. Double-check your work. You must ensure the side of the IDE cable with the red stripe is matched to Pin 1 on the interface board and on the drive.
CAUTION: In the case of only one IDE device, you must make certain that one end of the cable is always connected to the IDE connector on the motherboard. The other end of the connector must be connected to a device. The end connector of the cable should never be left unconnected.
9. Connect a power cable from the computer to the power connector (DC INPUT) of the drive. In most computers, you will find free power connectors that are ready for your use.
CAUTION: The power connector on the cable and the receptacle on the drive are keyed. Do not force the power connector into the drive, or the drive and/or the computer may be damaged.
Figure 16: Cable connections for an internal IDE drive
10. Connect the analog audio cable if you want to use a sound board in your system. This cable runs from the four-pin analog audio output connector on the rear panel of your drive to the CD-ROM audio connector on the PC or your sound board. See Using Sound Boards and Audio Cables below for more information about audio cables. 11. Connect a digital audio cable if your sound board is equipped with the Sony/Philips Digital Interface (SPDIF) or Digital-In, and you wish to use the digital audio output from your PX-750A. This cable runs from the digital audio output connector pins on the PX-750A back panel to the sound board. (This cable is not supplied by Plextor.) 12. Mount the PX-750A drive in the computer using the four screws that were supplied with your drive. Use only these screws.
CAUTION: Do not mount your drive in your computer using screws other than those supplied by Plextor. You may damage the drive if you insert screws that are too long or the wrong thread type.
Using Sound Boards and Audio Cables
Whichever category your sound board falls into, you will find that the best source of information about installing the sound board in your computer is the board's manual. Once you have successfully installed the sound board in your computer, you can continue below for a description of the different cable connections that need to be made. If you need audio cables, you will have to purchase them. Refer to the table below. A list of several vendors who offer audio cables is available on Plextors web site.

Mount the PX-750UF Drive
This section explains how to physically connect the PX-750UF external drive to your computer. In general, this is what youll do: 1. Determine what operating system your computer is running. Your computer must be running Windows XP or 2000; or the Macintosh Mac OS X operating system. 2. Determine which interface you want to use: FireWire (IEEE 1394) or USB. 3. Set the PX-750UF interface switch for IEEE 1394 or USB. 4. Connect the AC adapter to an electrical outlet and to the PX-750UF. 5. Turn the drives power switch ON (the 1 position). 6. Connect the USB cable or a FireWire cable (corresponding to the setting of the interface switch) from your PX-750UF drive to the computer. Thats all there is to it! Well go over the procedure in more detail in the next few pages. If you have a PC, start here. If you have a Macintosh, go to If You Have a Macintosh on page 46.
Determine Your Computers Operating System
To determine which operating system your personal computer uses: 1. In Windows, select the Start menu, then select Settings, then Control Panel, and choose the System icon. You see the System Properties window. 2. In the System Properties window, make sure the General tab is selected. The System line shows details about your operating system. (For example, Windows 2000.)
NOTE: Your computer must be running Windows 2000 or Windows XP (or Mac OS X). If you are not running one of these operating systems you cannot use the PX-750UF. You cannot use the PX-750UF with Windows 98 or Mac OS 9.
Determine What Interface to Use
You can use either USB 2.0 or FireWire. The built-in USB ports on older computers (and even on inexpensive new ones) provide only USB 1.1that is, Full-Speed (12 Mbps) USB. For optimum performance: If your PC does not have built-in USB 2.0, use the FireWire port, if available. If you have neither USB 2.0 or FireWire, you can purchase and install a third-party PCI USB 2.0 or FireWire plug-in host adapter card. If you dont want to purchase a separate card, you can use your PCs built-in USB 1.1 port. However this limits the CD-RW drive performance of the Plextor PX-750UF to 4X write, 4X rewrite, and 6X read. DVD performance with USB 1.1 is 0.7X.
Figure 21: The logo identifies the type of DVD media With double layer media, you dont need to turn the disc over to record on side 2.
Section 4. Using Your PX-750
Unlike standard DVD media, you do not need special DVD burning software to write or read DVD-RAM discs on a computer. You can access these discs like a floppy disk or hard drive. You can even write a DVD-RAM disc with a set-top box, then read it on the PX-750 drive. The PX-750 supports reading and writing with 2.6-GB (version 1) and 4.7-GB (version 2) DVD-RAM discs.
You can use these types of CD media: CD-ROM: You can immediately play or read prerecorded compact discs, such as audio CDs and data discs. CD-R: Recordable CD. You can record on these discs, but only once. You can also read them. CD-RW: Normal Speed, High Speed and Ultra Speed ReWritable CD. These discs support recording and re-recording (up to 1,000 times). You can also read them. To achieve a certain writing speed, you must use the appropriate media. To achieve 40X CD-R writing speed you must use certified 40X media; and to achieve 24X CD-RW writing speed you must use Ultra Speed CD-RW media. Remember: Using Normal Speed CD-RW discs (that is, NS-RW media) you can rewrite at 4X. Using High Speed CD-RW discs (HS-RW media), you can rewrite at 4X or 10X. Using Ultra Speed CD-RW discs (US-RW media) in this drive, you can rewrite at up to 24X.
You can write to Ultra Speed CD-RW discs only on drives that support this media. Drives that are capable of writing to Ultra Speed ReWritable media, such as the Plextor PX-750, are identified by a Compact Disc ReWritable Ultra Speed logo.
Figure 22: The logo also identifies the type of CD-RW media

Tray Loading and Operation
To load and unload the tray: 1. While the drive is powered up, push the eject button on the front panel. The tray drawer slides out in 34 seconds.
Figure 23: Loading the tray 2. Lay a CD or DVD disc in the depression in the tray, label side up. 3. Press the eject button again and the tray will slide shut within seconds.
NOTE: Always use the eject button to close the tray in a smooth and secure manner. Closing the tray by pressing the front of the drawer using your hand is not recommended and risks damage or premature wearing of the mechanism.
Handling DVD and CD Media
Take care when handling blank CD and DVD media. Dust, scratches, and fingerprints on either side of the disc can cause write errors during recording. When picking up or holding blank media you can either place your fingers along the outer edge of the disc, or place one finger through the center hole and one finger on the outer edge. Once you have finished creating a disc, label it by writing on the top using permanent ink.
CAUTION: We recommend using a non-toxic marker, such as a Sharpie pen, that conforms to the ASTM D-4236 standard. Some permanent markers will damage the media. Also, do not press too hard when writing on the disc. NOTE: We do not recommend placing self-sticking CD-R labels on the disc. The weight of the label may unbalance the disc and cause write errors during recording or read errors during reading. Also, attempting to remove the label may permanently damage the disc.
For proper read and write performance, your discs must be clean. Trying to record on a dirty disc may result in a failed session and ruin the disc. To clean the disc, wipe the disc using a clean, soft cotton cloth to remove surface dirt such as fingerprints. Use a straight-line motion, wiping from the center out. Do not wipe the disc in a circular motion.
Figure 24: Wipe the disc from the center outward
HINT: Keep your frequently used discs in jewel cases at all times to prevent them from becoming dirty or damaged.
You can operate your PX-750 drive in either a horizontal or a vertical position.
To play a digital video disc, insert the DVD as you would any other disc. The drive plays both single layer and double layer discs. The first time: A code on each DVD allows it to be played only on players designed for a certain regional area, such as North America, Europe, etc. When the drive ships from the factory there is no region code set. The first time a DVD that has a region setting is inserted into the drive, the drive is automatically set to that region code. If you later insert a DVD with a different region code, you are prompted to either accept changing the new region code or not. If you dont accept the change, then that DVD will not play. If you do accept the change, then the region code setting is changed. But remember: you can change the drives region code only 5 times. After that, you cant change it any more.
Writing to DVD Media
You need special software that supports writing to DVD+R, DVD+R DL, and DVD+RW discs; or to DVD-R DL, DVD-R and DVD-RW discs. Roxios Easy Media Creator (on the DVD that accompanies your PX-750) contains this software. You dont need special software to write to DVD-RAM media.
Specifying +R/RW or -R/RW
You dont need to specify whether to write to +R/RW or -R/RW. The selection is automatically made for you, based on the media you insert in the drive.
Writing to CD-R and CD-RW Media
In conjunction with your drive, mastering and packet writing software such as Roxio Easy Media Creator or Ahead Softwares Nero allows you to write audio, video, data, or other information to writable (CD-R) or rewritable (CD-RW) media. The PX-750 writes to all types of CDRW media.
If the computer power is turned off or the automatic eject button at the front of the drive does not work, use this procedure to open the drive. To use the emergency eject tool to open the drive: 1. Make sure power to the drive is OFF. (That is, turn off your computer.) 2. At the front of the drive, insert the emergency eject tool, or a paper clip or other thin, rigid object, into the emergency eject hole.
Figure 25: Emergency eject 3. Push the tool or other object straight in, until the disc tray clicks open. 4. Carefully continue to slide the disc tray open. 5. Remove the CD or DVD from the disc tray. 6. Carefully push the disc tray shut.
Changing the PX-750A Front-Panel Color
By using the replacement bezel and disc tray face plate you can change the PX-750As front-panel color in a few moments.
CAUTION: Avoid creating static electricity. Be sure to wear a grounding strap when performing this procedure.
To install a different bezel and disc tray face plate: 1. If the PX-750A is already installed in a computer, turn the computer power OFF and open the computer case. 2. If necessary, remove cables from the rear of the PX-750A and remove the drive. (You may be able to gain access to the necessary parts of the drive by sliding it forward without removing any cables.) 3. Use the emergency eject tool or a paper clip to open the tray drawer as illustrated in Figure 25 above. 4. Turn the drive upside down (or work from the bottom) and locate the two hooks at the bottom of the disc tray face plate. The hooks are toward the left and right edges of the tray mask.
Figure 26: Locate the two disc tray face plate hooks
5. Hold the disc tray securely and gently push the tray face plate slightly to release it from the hooks. Pry a hook away from the tray and press down. When both hooks are released, remove the mask by pressing it off the disc tray.

Appendix B: Technical Support
Store Plextors e-mail, web site, phone, and fax numbers in a convenient location. Keep your drives serial number and a copy of your sales receipt handy as well. If you experience a problem while installing or operating your drive, please refer first to the relevant sections of this manual regarding setup and installation (Sections 13). If you do not uncover the solution there, please refer next to the maintenance and troubleshooting section that begins on page 55. You may also wish to refer to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section of our web site to assist you in troubleshooting the problem on your own.
NOTE: We encourage you to go the Plextor web site (www.plextor.com) before attempting to contact Technical Support. The answers to the most common questions callers ask can be found quickly in the support area. Select PlexHelper for online troubleshooting or FAQs for answers to common questions.
If you have not been successful in your quest, our Technical Support Department will help you solve problems that relate specifically to your PX-750A drive. In many cases, a problem that appears to be caused by your Plextor drive actually originates in another part of your computer. In such instances, our technical support staff will try to help you identify the part at fault and will refer you to the manufacturer of that part for further assistance.
All drives returned to PLEXTOR must be securely packaged and shipped postage prepaid. The drive will be returned to the customer at Plextors expense when originating within the United States. For a drive originating outside of the United States, the customer is responsible for shipping costs in both directions.
NOTE: Warranty validity is limited to that applicable in the location where the drive was originally purchased.
If Youre Outside the U.S. or Canada
Note that the warranty and RMA policy only apply to the United States and Canada. If you are in South America, contact your dealer or reseller for all warranty and RMA claims.

Most DVD-ROM read copied disc speed not fast enough. If use 12X~16X burn speed will cause many buffer under run. Recommend use hard disk for 12X~16X burn speed or set burn speed to lower (4X~8X). For 8X~12X on the fly copy, recommend use ASUS brand DVD-ROM.
