Yes. I am using a notebook and 3 desktops all with XP SP2 and connect an External USB 2.0 16x burner to it. I actually have 2 USB 2.0 burners (different manufacturer) and both experience the problem.
I know that it is nothing to do specifically with Clone DVD 2 (latest), DVD Dcrypter, Shrink, and straing from Nero all error out at some point. It is just that CloneDVD 2 give the best error condition (the others just say failed or something real generic in the logs where as Clone gives a specific error).
Let me state again that this will not happen if I plug the burner into a 1.1 USB connection. It only happens when it is plugged into USB 2.0 and remember that this is 2 different burners experiencing the same behavior.
Also for an update: I decided to buy a USB 2.0 card for one of my computer that work fine. I installed the card and verified the machine recognized it as being 2.0. I then proceeded to connect one of my burners to the new USB card and test. As I suspected, it failed.
It is failing when the Device Buffer reaches 100% and stays at 100% for about 5 secs. I am no expert but if I had to assume then it seems like the Device Buffer is being overrun causing the error.
Now, If we could just find a way to increase the devce buffer or figure out what is going on with USB 2.0. I am wondering how many of the people that have posted with this error are using an external USB 2.0 vs an Internal?
