I bought a internal DVD burner (NEC ND-3540A, unmodded) after reading great reviews about it. To connect it to my laptop (AMD Athlon XP-M 2200+, 768 MB RAM, with most probably USB 1.1 ports), I use an external enclosure (NEO, bought from dealsonic.com - find details here: http://dealsonic.com/neon5usb20ex.html)
I tried burning DVDs images(both +R and -R) and even data CDs on it usinf Nero 22.214.171.124, but I get burn failed errors. (I have burned CDs and DVDs using Nero before, and I know how the process works). Reading DVDs and CDs works fine though.
I have attached the error logs in this thread here: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=144852. Does anybody have a clue why I am getting the error - is it because I have USB 1.1 ports, or is the enclosure incompatible with the DVD burner, or have I connected it wrong? Your comments are highly appreciated.
Somebody sugested in another thread that USB 1.1 might be causing the problem while burning DVDs - but is that true for CDs too?
Also, as I have a laptop, so I believe that the only way I can add a USB 2.0 port is via a PCMCIA-USB module. Is this true, or are there other options?
