Hi there, I just bought a Pioneer 112D a couple days ago.
It reads DVDs fine and burns them, but when I tried to copy a file off a CD-R it takes forever to copy it. I had to cancel it as it was taking more than 30mins. This is happening with more than 1 CD and I know these cds work. They copy fine in another burner. I didn’t try copying\burning cds when I bought the DVD burner, guess I should have. I have the disk scans from both burners for the same disk. I have this drive in an enclosure using USB2.0.
Please tell me if something if wrong with the drive, because if I carry it back to the place I bought it and nothing is wrong with it I have to play money for ‘wasting their time’.
I really though my drive was working.
The first scan is from the pioneer 112D and the 2nd is from the LG.
The IDE cable in the enclosure is 80pin (I think). It has a blue connection coming out, and a black connector to the drive.
