Hi...I recently bought a Plextor 48/24/48U External USB 2.0 drive. At the time I didn't have a USB 2 cardbus for my laptop so I used it at the maximum, 4x, and it worked alright, it needed to invoke burn-proof a lot for a plain audio disc, but I chalked that up to the USB 1.1.
Today I got the cardbus, and when using the drive it rips audio fine, but when I try to burn something, it fails. It cannot get past the lead in stage -- it completely stalls and can't write a single track. It won't write data, either. I've tried at 4x, 8x, 16x, none work. The programs I'm using are Nero 18.104.22.168 and Feurio. I'm also using Fuji discs. What's causing this and how can i fix it?
AMD Athlon 1.5 Ghz
256 MB RAM
Thanks in advance!
