GSA-H42N - Works OK With External Enclosure?

#1

I bought one of these a year ago, and I didn’t end up putting it in my new system as I don’t have any IDE slots. I was wondering if anyone knows how this drives performs using an external casing, and on USB 2? What cases have you had success with too?

I have been considering buying an external, already assembled, but forgot I had this unused drive.

Cheers

An LG E40N is existing, your burner in external version. You can crossflash (with patching E40N firmware with MCSE) this firmware to your H42N to get a E40N. And if you can find out which USB chipset the LG external enclosures use you can buy an enclosure with the same chipset. This should be a good ensurance that it will work.
