More then a month ago, while doing some back-ups I tried to hook up my Litey SOHW-812 on my old PII-266MHz home network computers IDE bus.
Burning at 4x speed was okay but kinda shaky (buffer underruns al the way), 8x burning was nogo.
Well, I thought, maybe I should try something else. So this evening I popped in a USB2 add in card on PII-266Â´s PCI bus and connected my external 16x burner (NEC 3500 on USB2) to this box.
Surprisingly, burning at 8x speed completed without any issues. 12x burning,is still nogo though. Burning stops when shifting from 10 to 12x speed…
But then, what can we expect from more then a 7 years old system.
Anyway, USB2 seems to be the way to go. Anybody else have some advices or experiences.?
