PX-755 ASDB file export with cdvdcontrol
has a limitation due to a Plextor firmware bug. The last ASDB entry of an exported ASDB file gets corrupted, when exporting it. Plextor is informed about this problem, but is refusing to give a solution:
We suggest to create an obsolete ASDB entry at the last position, which you don't really need. This entry can be deleted when the ASDB file has been imported again.
- Plextor Support America: the factory will not modify the firmware of the PX-755 to make it output the correct ASDB file content.
- Plextor Support Europe: answer came after two months of waiting and made no sense.

the cdrecord problem
GigaRec, VariRec, PowerRec, ... values that were set in QPxTool are ignored by cdrecord while burning with k3b. All your settings will be
disabled from cdrecord by default, even if there was no command set for deactivating those options. So we recommend the usage of
cdrdao or cdrskin, which are working fine with QPxTool. SecuRec is not affected by this limitation.
DVD spindown setting on Plextor drives
is ignored on Plextor drives with an inserted DVD. Remove DVD before spindown setting.
