Can I use a ide to usb adapter for burning?



I’ve got a usb2 connection on my computer and whenever I try to use a usb to ide adapter to link to my dvdwriter, the burn would fail somehow. What about an external enclosure usb? I believe it should work better, but can someone tell me why a usb to ide adapter with usb2 connection can’t work that way, thanks.


How are you getting power to the drive. Is it internal or external device.


power is external device


what software are you burning with? What media? Are you getting any error messages?
