vbimport

#1

HI, i bought an lg burner the 4160b with firmware A302, and i install the burner in an external casing usb2.0, i try 2 kind of external casing, i already exchange the burner one time, and i still not able to burn dvd and cd, i try on 6 computer and 2 laptop the laptop are dell d600 and with my other burner pioneer A06 in the same kind of external casing it work fine i try with princo dvd,aciero dvd and also with mitsumi and i got error message a soon that the burning process start.for the software i try with nero 5.5.10 with 6.6.x.x with the 6.3.x and another version who came with the burner originaly. so i don’t know if anybody can help me with that i already scrap 20 dvd just with the test
Thanks

As far I remember, the Lg gsa-4160b is very sensitive to external case.

You better read http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=119149


#4

Why is it sensitive? The thread is mostly about external enclosure, the chipset (especially PL-3507) used for external case.

Both GSA-4160B and GSA-4163B work alright in USB 2.0 and IEEE 1394 for 16x DVD writing.


#5

Well, my memory must have some bad sectors.

I only mentioned it because his Pioneer A06 works fine in the same kind of external casing.


#6

On two of my external cases, Lite-On 1613S drives do not work. Not recognized at all and I have four of them. However, the same drives work well in the Lite-On’s own SOHW-1633SX. 16x in USB 2.0 works actually.

The big problem with external cases is it’s almost very small companies that make the chipsets, PCB’s, and cases. Almost all of them seem to lack consistency in features and compatibility. Same with PCI cards for USB 2.0 and IEEE 1394. Usually, it’s the case problem, not drive problem.


#7

I guess that I should have been more specific, what I ment by “sensitive”. It was not my meaning to say any evil about the Lg gsa-4160b.

People do have problems with external enclosures, but it’s related to the enclosure and not the drive as you say. I have messed with my own enclosure to. Worked great with a NEC 2500, but useless with a NEC 3500.


#8

The external Enclosure is a ME-320U2 and i already try a another one but i can’t remember witch one…

Thanks
Andy

yes that’s exactly what i have the ali-chipset usb 2.0 case and it’s not working
