Question about LaCie (300705u) CD-RW Burner

1 Answer

LaCie CD-RW CD-ROM doesn't have installer for Macs?

Just bought a 300705u USB 2.0 model on eBay and am trying to hook it up to an iMac with both 9.2.2 and 10.1.5 OS. I have Toast with Jam V.5 loaded on the 9.2.2 OS, which is also where I wanted to load the LaCie software and burn from exclusively. The CD Utilities disc (which has "WINDOWS" printed under the title) does not seem to include software for Macs. I've opened every file and nothing resembling the install icons ID'd in the manual are evident. The folders are "Applicat", "Acrobatr", "BIN" and "Manuals". There are 4 documents: "Autorun.inf", "Laciecd.ini", "icon.icd" and "laciecd.exe". I've gone to the Lacie website, but this burner has had the serial# sticker removed and I can't get assistance without it. I've printed out the user's manual from the and it's pretty clear except it doesn't mesh with what is on the CD-ROM-namely, no install icons. The folders are "Applicat" Do I have a CD-ROM specifically for Windows? If so, where do I get Mac software? I have 2 days to get this working before the seller's warranty expires, so any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, PMoore

Usb dvd writer can install xp?

Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

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,

(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,

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,

The USB end, that plugs into the Lacie optical burner drive, is a USB Mini-B style end. (Male) It looks like this,
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, Products, Support & Downloads, and the Power Supply, for your LaCie DVD+RW 301230U external optical drive,

No installation disc for lacie d2 dvd rw

You shouldn't need an installation disk, just burner software. May I suggest this free burner software? Infra Recorder. I used to use
Nero, but switched to Infra Recorder, and like it Much better!

1.Info about Infra Recorder on,
2.Infra Recorder homepage,
On this homepage you may want to go to the right, and click on
-> Screenshots, under the Pages heading.

If the Lacie D2 DVD-R/W burner drive is the only optical drive installed, Windows should 'see' it as new hardware. ("Found new
hardware" "Found Lacie D2 DVD-RW")

Be sure the 4-pin Molex power connector, is installed in this optical drive, also the interface cable, and the 4-pin audio cable.

I keep getting: "Interface Error 50 - The connection is not stable"

does sound like a firmware issue, see if you can get updated/modified firmware for your drive online
