I know there are threads about this, but every one of them I have read are not definitive on what type of enclosure/ chipset is required for the Benq 1655 when running the drive via usb.
Due to a hardware failure I had to pick up an inspiron 530 pc which comes with an LG Drive hs-73n. I ordered a Samsung 203N drive which comes today, but from what I am hearing on these boards, neither of these drive are good "disc quality scanners", like the Benq.
I need to put my Benq in an enclosure to keep the scanning capability (since there is no converter for SATA to IDE for internal drives).
My question, what is the external enclosure of choice that I can purchase ??? Also, do I need to use an external firmware for the benq, or is this allright, as is (since I am running XP SP3 on my new machine).
