External BTC1108IM (Doomed?)

First post here. Currently I’m using a BTC1108IM DVDRW drive in external usb box in wich it came with. First burn was successfull :clap: (HP DVD+RW) but after that everything went bad. Almost every dvd failed to be written. Nero and Sonic Record now were showing a message ‘problem occurred’ with no further inofrmation. :doh: Tried firmware update, 5 media brands but nothing. 1 month ago i tried a non btc firmware wich solved the problem until today. 20/25 successfully writen disks. But an hour ago it started again. No DVD±R would burn and always the same error. :a (There was an error writing to disk). I’m using the drive with IBM R50e laptop.

What else can i do? This is the first one time that I felt like I would crash the drive with a rock. It really drives me nuts!!! Any ideas? :sad:

Only use good media like TY and Verbatim or connect the burner internally and try again…

I tried it as a IDE Secondary Master. Well my desktop pc is very old but it burned the disk (1 hour later).

With a second thought I wonder if there is any conflict with other devices in my laptop like the internal cdrw drive or the modem. In bios all devices are listed in IRQ 11, but in computer management there seems to be no confilct.

I bought 2 new sets of dvds (verbatim & Imation) and I will try tonight. I will post again the results

nope, nothing. It failed again on both verbatim and imation disks. Nero returned a reset occured and this error log. Anyone familiar with this? Help please…!!!

My last card. Firmware update in dos mode. Used tha latest version. Writing is successful 2/2 imation disks (fujifilm03) but only in my laptops build in record software. Nero 6 is still giving me errors but RecordNow doesn’t. I will watch this for a few days and let’s hope that it will be fine with this.

You could update Nero to 6.6.1.4.

I updated nero. Tried to burn one disk and it failed again between 10-20%. Nero returned again reset occured. RecordNow failed too. BUT HP DVD+RW was burned and erased successfully 3 times only in Record Now. I wonder if there is problem with the communication link between Usb Drive and the pc. The HP disks were succesfully burned in 2x speed wich was the maximum for the disk. But the FUJIFILM03 disks and verbatim had a minimum of 4x speed in wich burn failed all the times. I was able to burn a fujifilm03 disk in 8x speed but it was written 1/3 of total data and recordnow returned a unable to verify disk message

Any ideas in my problem?

Try it on another computer.

Remove the software for both nero and rec.now, reinstall the newest copy of nero.

I will try that. On another pc works both on usb and as IDE drive with nero included with the drive (Nero 6 but not the latest ver.) Maybe that ‘reset occured’ is sth that is have to do with my laptop, maybe there is not enough power (although windows give me 500mA per usb port wich seems to be the maximum needed by the box).

Maybe it is sth else, I don’t know… But it writes 3/5 disks at least , so it confuses me. (with record now it writes 3/5 but with nero 0/5)
