I also had much troubles with my brand new Plextor.  Then I upgraded to 
a 2.6.20x kernel, switched to a SATA model and stopped using the 
apparently poor PATA drivers, using the new SCSI - SATA drivers in the 
new kernel, and switched media to Verbatim.  Ever since, I've had 
complete success.  Before that, every DL was a coaster, and that gets 
costly to test out.  Go SATA and your life will become less stressful.
