Just wanted to know if anyone could help me out here, i'm having a bit of trouble installing my pioneer dvr-112d. Firstly, I am installing it externally as I have a laptop. Secondly, I am such a tight arse I did not buy an external case, instead i pulled apart an external Imation burner that i had before and put the Pioneer in there.
At first, i thought it worked, because the computer recognised the drive. But then, whenever i try to burn anything, the pioneer makes plenty of noise but nothing happens, and then whatever application i'm using stops responding. All the plugs seemed to be the same in the back of my external case to plug into the drive so i don't see what is wrong exactly. It's IDE and so was the external burner, i didn't think i needed to worry about master and slave because it's external.
So is it not possible to put a burner in another burner's case, or have i just got a faulty burner?
Any suggestions on this would be really helpful, thankyou.
