I’m running an IBM A20m 700mhz p3 laptop, I bought an LG gsa-4120b internal ide drive and it came in an external usb 2.0 enclosure. I bought a pcmcia usb 2.0/ 1394 combo card. I’m running XP.
I have the latest Nero In the nero dvd test the drive won’t even work with dvd’s at all. On the nero cd test it only records at 5x, and when I burn a cd on a TDK cdr it takes 50 minutes for a 700mb disk. (including verification). It will only work if I plug into my USB 1.0 port. When I plug it into the combo card it will not work at all. The usb 2.0 card came with ALI drivers, but the card doesn’t really have a brand. I’m using A111 firmware on my LG drive.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me? How can I get this to work?
I don’t think it’s a media problem because the drive can barely read dvd’s or cd’s at all!
here is what my drive looks like:
