i just bought the 3500 and i use a laptop so i bought a usb2 enclosure for it. the enclosure plugs into a belkin usb2 hub pc card cos my laptop is a bit old and doesnt have usb2.
everything seems fine until i burn in nero 126.96.36.199…it lets me select 8x when using datawrite grey (fujifilm03) but then it burns really slow, taking about 15mins to burn a full disc. i used the determine max speed option and it showed my usb2 hdd and my laptop hdd to be over 9x speed so i know its not a data flow problem. the buffer is always full too.
i have firmware 2.16 atm but i tried 2.27 and 2f8 but there was no change. i read that the speed problems might be to do with the external enclosure chip? i have an ali m5621 iirc…
any help is much appreciated.
