So I have the 3540a drive using it as an external and I have the USB2.0 driver installed but I am only burning at 6X on 8X media. I am using this on a laptop with a cardbus USB2.0 Hub.
It took me 15 minutes to burn a full dvd (movie). On the cardbus I have also 2 external HD's besides the new burner.
If I transfer a 90 MB file from one HD to the other It takes about 30 seconds. So it's USB2.0 but it's slower than it should be.
I have this on a p3. 600mhz laptop. It burns fine but slow. Any ideas?
