I recently purchased an external TSL462D CD-RW/DVD-RW combo burner optical drive because I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro which has no onboard disc burner. I only purchased this external one so I could burn CDs for the car.
I have been trying to burn CD-Rs using the USB 2.0 cable that came included with the drive, but the burn operation never is able to start writing before an error message comes up. I have tried using iTunes and IMGburn but both give very vague errors and I cannot find anything exclusively related to this problem online. The drive appears to read discs fine. I cannot find what drivers or firmware are supposed to be for this product but it wasn't supposed to need any past a certain OS (I am running Windows 8.1). If anybody has any input, I'd greatly appreciate it.
"The attempt to burn a disc failed. An unknown error occurred (4300)."
"W 21:44:41 Retry Failed - Reason: Logical Unit Communication CRC Error (ULTRA-DMA/32)"
