Plextor PX-708A Can't Burn Under Vista?

This is my experience. Vista can see the drive, and can read from it. However, it will not write. The OS does ask you if you want to format a blank disc, but then fails with at "Windows was unable to complete the format." Nero 7 and MagicISO also fail.

Plextor Japan has a compatibility report up, and the 708A is not listed.

I'm interested if anyone else is able to get their 708a to write. Otherwise, it looks like I'll have to buy a new drive. :( 

edit: I updated the firmware for the drive too. No go.

Is it attached to a JMicron controller?
You would need F6 drivers if that is the case.
