[QUOTE=Ibex;2250837]Thanks for the scans Evo.
You can ignore the CD-DVD Speed TA Jitter test for CDs. Although the tab is shown, Lite-On CD writers cannot perform the test. With some drives the test will run but the results are meaningless.[/quote]
That seems to be the case, I remember that only early LiteOn DVD writers (like my dead 18A1H) could use that CDSpeed test.
Does your JMicron IDE/SATA enclosure work successfully with SATA optical drives? I bought one last month but it did not recognise my SATA Samsung DVD writer (the only SATA drive I had at the time). On the box (written in Danish) it appeared to suggest that it only supported SATA HDDs, although the manufacturer’s & vendor’s web sites (in English) both indicated that PATA & SATA optical drives were supported. I returned the enclosure because it had several other faults.[/QUOTE]
Yes it does, I actually have most of the drives in my signature in them and have no problems with the JMicron chipset. I could get 16x burning on Windows but only 8-12x under Mac OS X, which is acceptable since that is my preferred speed. eSATA enclosures handle the high-speed burning and scanning/ripping.
