Question about SmartDisk 2.5-inch USB 2.0 Smart Disk Case Enclosure (Black) (CSEEC2501U) Drive Case

Smartdisk Cameramate Videosafe

I wanted to copy a video of 1 hour and 50 minutes using this Cameramate with a USB connection. After the video ran, it took another 3 hours and 45 minutes for it to write to DVD and then it had an error at the end so it didn't work. Why is it so slow? What am I doing wrong?

It was trying to stream data USB while writing DVD, somewhat risky. Try this instead: look for the option to copy all data to hard drive first and then burn DVD from hard drive.

Will not power on


i hope you didn't dropped it cause dropping it may cause to malfunction or no function at all
here are some steps you might follow if its not broken it may work
1. first of all check the adapter if it says Input:100V-240V~50/60Hz Output:5V/2A; 12V/2A ,
if you have the original adapter check for the values
2. if it doesn't powers your external drive then check for a adapter of same inputs and outputs
see if it works with another adapter,go to a shop and ask someone that you want to check ,
if it works then you have to buy it.cause our adapter is out.

if it doesn't your final procedure should be this

1. install driver from here
2. install it .and see if it detects the drive works.

now if it doesn't help ignore this post .cause i don't want to reffer you to a service center,cause i consider this as a help to you.

Best Regards
do tell me that how did you resolved the matter ....!??

My irocks enclosure only came with 98 drivers where can i get xp

Xp does not need them but check the information below before you panic.

I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especialy true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB Connection Problems

You say have a SanMax HD-338-CB USB/Firewire External HD with a 160MB drive. You then say sometimes I have to reboot Windows XP pro 2 or 3 time before I see the drive using a USB 2.0 connection. Fire wire is a different system with a different connector style- so it should not be in a USB port or a USB connector should not be in a Firewire device. Get you device and connections sorted The desktop display simply puts up a device it will not differentiate which USB or Firewire
