Question about Magic INCDRW4048 MagicSpin (INCDRW4048) Burner

1 Answer

Won't turn ON

I have a I/OMagic #I522452EU DVD Burner and somehow it stopped working this morning when I went to turn it ON. I changed the USB port position, unplugged the rear connection and still it won't turn ON. I flipped the rear ON & OFF switch. My computer doesn't reconginize it either. Does the USB cord also act as the power cord? If yes, it's fried. If no, then the power cord for this DVDBurner is somewhere behind my huge desk.

Tmilligan,
This is an external burner right? They usually have a power supply and wall plug and don't power up from the USB. To make sure check the drive to see if there is a plug for a power cord on the enclosure back. My money is on that you will need to call some friends to help you move the desk.

I just bought a USB External/GE24 Super Multi Rewriter, with 24x speed. my problem is, when it burns, it burns EXTREMELY slow. I used to have an 8x burner, that would burn in about 5 minutes, and this one...


Hello mklvon,
Welcome to FixYa.Com!
I would like to recommend that you first take a look at your computer. Check if you have a USB 2.0 High Speed port. Reason is because although you have a USB 2.0 Ext Multi-Burner but your connecting it to a USB 1.0 or USB 1.1 port, the Multi-Burner will only run as fast as the USB port can transfer data.
Another time I would like to recommend is for you to take a look at the USB cable itself. As it is an Ext. Multi-Burner it may require a power USB port w/c is the reason why most Ext. Burner's have a Y-connector that is one USB port on one side and the other side branches off to 2 USB ports as it required extra power. If it is, you may want to consider your options as to getting a powered USB port.
And lastly, I would recommend that you take a look at the type of discs you are burning on to. Not all DVD R are the same. Whilst some have 24x speed some can have 4x speeds which can also affect the burn speeds.
Regards,

When CD Inserted the port gets disconnected and does not recogonize


are you using a single usb connection? Unless you have power plugged into the unit you probably need a dual usb cable (two usb connect to pc (or mac) and one connects to the cd player. Most usb ports do not provide enough power for a cd player plugged into one port.
Hope that works for you

Usb not recognized and no removable disk drive


Try connecting the USB device to a different USB port on the same computer, or to a USB port on a different computer, to confirm that the USB device itself is working correctly.

IHOOK UP THE BURNER TO MY COMPUTER BUT NOTHING


Try a different USB port. Check if other USB devices are found when in that port.

Unplug other USB devices (keep your keyboard and monitor attached) and check if the device is recognized. Since you indicate that you used the front port, you may want to check that the cable between back of the port to the motherboard is fully seated on both sdes. Make sure that the OS hasn't been set to turn off the previously unused USB ports (this is a security and power-saving option).

I hope this helps.

How do i increase my dvd rw drive speed


Not all "blank" disks are alike.
Some support only '4X' or '8X' writing-speed.
So, buy blank disks that support '48X' writing-speed.

Not all DVD-writers are alike.
Some support only '4X' or '8X' writing-speed.
Upgrade to a DVD-writer that supports '16X' or '32X' writing-speed.

Not all USB ports are alike.
USB 1.1 ports support 11Mbits/second,
while USB 2.0 ports are about 10 times as fast.
Check that your USB device is connected to a USB 2.0 port, not a USB 1.1 port.

LG GSA E 40 L External dvd writer not recognised


you may be having conflicts with usb devices. try temporarily removing all unnecessary devices from the usb ports. unplug and then plug the drive back in. you could try another port. if all ports are in use, then unplug another device, like the mouse and plug in to that port, then plug the mouse into the writers port. i had a similar problem with a wireless usb lan that stopped another device from being recognised. when i removed the lan and replugged the unrecognised device, windows recognised it. i obviously had to use the wireless lan, so i swapped that with the mouse and it worked.

I have lost my power cord to my LaCie DVD+RW Dual Layer....


Here is the PDF Users Manual for the LaCie DVD+RW 301230U
external optical drive,

http://www.lacie.com/download/manual/portable_dvd_sh_en.pdf

(Give it at least 10 seconds to download)
Should the direct link above not work for you, you can download the Users Manual from here,

http://www.generalmanual.com/Disc-Burners/LaCie-301230U-Portable-DVD-RW.htm

Go down to the bottom of the page, and under the green -> Download Now <- heading, click on -> User Manual
The reason I posted the link to the User Manual, is that you can use a USB to USB cable for power. You plug one end of the USB cable, into an available USB port on your computer, and the other end, into the LaCie DVD+RW external optical drive. (You need two available USB ports on your computer. One for power, and one to connect the LaCie external optical drive. This USB cable, is called an Interface cable)

The USB end, that goes into your computer, (Laptop or Desktop computer), is the USB A style end. (Male) This is what it looks like,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USB_TypeA_Plug.JPG

The USB end, that plugs into the Lacie optical burner drive, is a USB Mini-B style end. (Male) It looks like this,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USB_types_2.jpg
It is the second one from the left side.

Where I'm at, we have Walmart stores. At Walmart they sell a USB adapter kit, made by Philips. This kit has a USB A to USB A cable, that both ends are Male. This cable is on a little retractable reel. The reel is about the size of a USA fifty cent piece. In the kit are five different styles of USB adapter ends. They just plug on that USB A to USB A style cable. (On the small reel) One of those adapter ends is a Mini-B USB male end. It has a Female USB A socket on one side, and a Male USB MIni-B end, on the other side. The kit sells for about $12 dollars.

Should you find that somehow, this USB power cable does not give enough power to your LaCie external optical burner drive, then here is LaCie.com, Products, Support & Downloads, and the Power Supply, for your LaCie DVD+RW 301230U external optical drive,
