it’s my first post here - so ‘hello’ to everyone of you…
Finally I need an external dvd-burner and after extensive reading and searching via google, storagereview and cdfreaks I’m really messed up.
At the beginning I thought that a Pio-112 and a Mapower KC51-C1P (Prolific PL-3507) would be fine. But then I discovered that the PL-3507 has some serious problems in fw400 (there are some threads on storagereview). And then I’ve read that the Oxford 911+ is really nice in FW400 - but can’t handle USB2.0 … so I need a case with two chips…
In the end I don’t know which way to go. I just want a nice and decent external burner which will work fine on USB2.0 AND FW400. Well and it should reach 16x also…
I think half the way is gone with the pio-112. CDfreaks gave it an award so it can’t be too bad, can it?!
So do you have any recommendations for a nice enclosure which supports both, USB2.0 AND fw400?! Would the mapower be fine or is the pl-3507 still ugly in fw400-mode?
Oh… I’ve read that the pio-112 needs udma-4 to burn at 16x - does the chip have to support this?
I really hope you can help me!
Thanks a lot and best regards,
