Want to make a question to everybody.
First of all. What is Firmware and why should I install it. Is Firmware the same thing as firewire?
My notebook as only one high speed port (well in the user guide of the notebook it says a high speed port and is different form the other 2 USB), so I’m guessing that I’m not talking about a USB, but perhaps a firewire port.
Some one told me that if I connect my DVD recorder (witch supports firmware, is in the BenQ website) by firewire through the firewire port that I probably have in the notebook it can’t work at a higher rates because my connection in the DVD recorder continues to be an USB and it doesn’t have a firewire port. Is this info correct?
So, if I get a cable that as in one tip a USB connection to connect in to the DVD recorder (remember the DVD recorder doesn’t have a firewire port) and in the other tip a firewire connection to connect to the notebook can it work correctly and do I’ve more speed in data transfer?
I am confused with all this terminology and such different opinions that I really don’t know what I can do about it. The fact is that with my notebook an Intel Pentium 4 processor at 2.6 GZ, takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to record a DVD and I must do something about it. 1 hour to put the movie in the hard disk and 30 to 45 minutes to record it on a blank DVD. I’m a patient man but this is too much even for me.
Any suggestions about connecting my DVD recorder (Benq EW162I) in a better and provable way are welcome.
