I have a problem with my BENQ DW1640. I decided to put it in an external encloisure drive and I chose Vantec NexStar 2 for this purpose. Everything seemed to be perfect at the beginning - the drive worked perfectly - reading , but … when I tried to write a DVD (Sony 8x single layer media) it hung at 68%, and the system showed that the drive is burning, Nero worked like there is nothing wrong but it continued to stay and “burn” at 68% half an hour until I swithced off the power of the drive… My next tries were with differend DVD media on different speeds and the result was that everytime it hangs on random percentage. Finally I decided to put it inside - and amazingly everything worked perfect - no problems ! it recorded whatever i wanted . So … do u have any idea of solving my problem, cause I really want to use my encloisure?
The drive is DW1640 (BSLB), the encloisure is Vantec NexStar 2 (USB 2.0 version, chip ALi M5621 A1)
