Is there any desire to add support for accessing (Old Macintosh) HFS format discs? there are several open source projects that can show how it is done (hfsutils/C, HFSExplorer/Java).

It would make listing correct Contents much easier.

Yeah I got refunds on both.

I'm using an official ugreen adapter from Amazon.

Fingers crossed I'll be up and running again soon!

I bought two other used Plextors:

PX-708A - had the same sort of problem (2 or 3 flashes)
Plexwriter 40/12/40A - had a different problem (9 flashes, motor problem)


So, still looking for a solution.

Thanks both, will look into these

My 716UF will no longer recognise discs.

I still have many discs to dump, and need to keep this external unit as I use a laptop.

So is the most cost effective way to replace the drive mechanism itself with something else? Another Plextor? Asus?

Thoughts appreciated. I'm in the UK.

Same user name is OK. Of course with capital letter to start.
