Goodies: LG GSA-4167 / ebuyer.co.uk enclosure
Purchased a DVD burner to copy some programs that my sister starred in (for an Italian TV channel!) - which at first I setup inside a 5 year old Dell desktop… which just managed to churn out copies at a rate of x1 every 28mins!
As I wanted to attach the internal DVD burner to my laptop, I enclosed it in a 5.25 external box (acquired via ebuyer.co.uk). This was a snap to do, but sadly the first disc became a coffee mat… This occurred quite early on in the burn, with faily unhelpful error message. I have not yet tried again - as I want to update the DVD driver.
Whilst I would like to apply a firmware update, I am not too keen to try this via USB. (Has anyone done this before?) I will probably take the drive to a friend, to apply the firmware update with the drive directly inserted in a desktop… and then try to use it externally again.
