Hello everyone i have had alot of trouble converting my 1625 to an external drive. I purchase an enclosure that was using a cyprus chipset which i guess is not very compatible. Today I recently purchased a different enclosure. I bought a Kingwin SS-525U-BK which has these features:
5.25" EIDE CD/DVD USB 2.0 black aluminum alloy external enclosure.
Newest Prolific chipsets included.
Plug & Play.
Stackable with multiple external enclosures.
Light weight aluminum alloy material.
Ball bearing cooling fan included to improve device performance.
Fan failure alarm system with red LED indicator.
Over current protection prevents over current damage to device.
Power supply included.
I know that they say the prolific chipset is generally what you need to get the drive to work properly. My question is with these features should the enclosure work with the 1625 and does anyone have this enclosure and what are your thoughts about it. I am running XP and will be using this drive through a USB 2.0 port. Thanks!
