    Question Can't detect read cache on PX-800A

    I've been using this drive for a while with the default read cache setting. When I try to detect the cache size using dbPoweramp, it reports 0 cache size. The cache size detection works fine with my cheap-o Lite On drive. I notice that a read cache for secure ripping is distinct from the buffer size. Is a read cache an anachronism that Plextor has ejected? Or is something wrong? I did a little research and read that Plextor is doing screwy things with their drives' low level commands in a deliberate attempt to make them only work correctly with Plextor utilities. I can't abide that - a DVD burner that works correctly with dbPoweramp and Nero is essential. I may need to switch to Pioneer.
