I got the external new years day.
I am not happy with it, as a lot of burns hang up at 99% and I can't even eject the disk (at least not until I unplug the usb cable, but then I need to reboot windows xp anyways).
I have toasted about 15 disks in this drive since getting it, and quite often go back to my older LG internal drive to make my writes.
Qscan is not supported, but runs on it. Im running it right now.
CD-DVD speed media test sort of runs, depending on the driver patch,but is very slow. The number says .## instead of 8.00 or whatever the speed should be.. It takes 2 hours to do a full scan. And there are no PIF errors reports, so I don't know how usefull it is to run this.
I regret getting this now, and wish I had gone with the internal.
Just check the boards here. Not much found if you search EW162i (or EW1621 as some have spelled it).
I'm new to this, so maybe someone else can comment. I could be just doing something wrong, but have got the latest firmware installed. I installed 47N9 and went back to 47L9 because of reported problems, but had more then with the 47L9, so am back with 47N9 now.
