OK, so I am a newbie but i guarentee this is not a stupid question: Why wont internal writers work in external USB cases? I have 3 writers 1)Sony DRU500ax, Memorex 48x CD writer DVD reader and a Pioneer 16x DVD writer. Right now none of them will finish writing a disk, 2 are in Belkin F5U209 external USB 2.0 enclosures and the third is in a recently purchased NexStar 2 USB case that I purchased to see if it would make a difference, it does not. Both brands of case use an Ali chip. My next option is to try using different burning software, i am using Veritas RecordNow DX v4.6. It is an excellent program that came with the Sony. Plenty of RAM, processing power on all computers, 1 main and 2 networked boxes, USB drivers are installed on W2K Pro SP4, I am using 6, 10 and 16 foot USB cables. It is one of those simple yet complicated problems, I have asked on other forums and gotten no response which means it is either something irresponsibly obvious or soemthing rediculously obscure.
Any info is appreciated.
