I wonder if anyone out there can help me with a ‘little’ problem I’m experiencing.
I have a Sharp PC-GP2520 Notebook (P4 2.0GHz, 512Mb RAM - XP Pro SP2) and have recently purchased a Safecom external 5.25" Firewire caddy for an external DVD Burner (NEC ND-4550 - nice!) and a Safecom Firewire/USB2.0 caddy for an external HDD.
The DVD drive works perfectly but the external HDD fails. I’ve tried the HDD in the 5.25" caddy and there are no problems.
The HDD will save information fine, but when the PC tries to read from it it fails and I get a Delayed File Write error message. Device manager says that the device reported problems and has disabled it, code 43.
The 3.5" caddy chipset is Prolific 3507 and I have just flashed the latest firmware to it too to see if that made any difference, but no
