    Do you have the same issue if you use SPTI rather than ElbyCDIO?



    Thanks for posting LIGHTNING UK!.

    I tested using SPTI & the results are the same.

    Don't use the enclosure if it doesn't work correctly with optical drives.


    I'm posting a couple of ImgBurn logs.

    These were done with the same drive in the enclosure.

    One is a Build to a DVD from a movie folder.

    One is a Read from the Audio CD.

    Both of these worked. So the enclosure does work with optical drives.

    It just won't write an Audio CD .

    This enclosure is for IDE optical drives as most in computers are SATA now .

    This can be convenient to use with those computers.

    I do have a tower computer with the IDE drives I want in it.

    I would try this drive in it but it is a PITA to swap a drive in it.

    I have another older computer mothballed & it is easier to change an optical drive in.

    I may dig it out & try it with this drive next week sometime.

    I believe the problem is with the enclosure.

    It is a SYBA & they say it has a Prolific chipset.

    I will see if I van find some further information from them.




    I don't have any Verbatim CD RWs.

    Any of these look any better ?

    I 14:27:14 Destination Media Type: CD-RW (Disc ID: 97m22s60f, Daxon)

    I 15:17:07 Destination Media Type: CD-RW (Disc ID: 97m28s15f, Gigastorage 

    I 15:21:27 Destination Media Type: CD-R (Disc ID: 97m28s22f, Multi Media Masters & Machinary SA)

    I 15:31:23
     Destination Media Type: CD-R (Disc ID: 97m34s23f, Mitsubishi Chemical Corp.)

    My suspicion is the chipset in the enclosure with the Samsung DVD drive.

    I also have a Vantec Nexstar enclosure with a bluray drive in it that doesn't get the error.
    The log attached is using the exact same low quality CD RW in the NexStar.

  3. When writing an Audio CD from a USB external enclosure I get this error:

    This is the drive: TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-H662A UO00 (K:) (USB)

    Above is just a partial of the log.

    I am attempting to let it complete but it is taking a long time & keeps repeating the error with each new sectors.

    I doubt the resulting Audio CD will be a good one. That is why I'm testing with an CD RW.

    I'm using an EAC created .cue file.

    I have also tested the same .cue file to the same CD RW from an internal drive with no errors.

    So the problem seems to be caused by using a USB.enclosure.
