Question about Philips JackRabbit II (JR24CDRW) CD-RW Burner

Open Question

Tapco link.usb Just purchased the Tapcolink.usb and am having a problem getting sound via my computer which is plugged into one of my USB outlets. I have used the instrument input on the Tapcolink.usb from my Technics Synthesizer, coming from it's plug outlet that I usually plug into my amp. I have pre recorded floppy disks on the Synthesizer and am trying to record them on my CDRW drive on my desktop. Is there any adjustment that I must make on my computer to produce the sound. I am able to play CD and DVD's on my computer without any problems. THanks for your help.

SOURCE: Driver problem with DVD/CDRW device driver

Hi sandystell,

Well normally in Windows XP the DVD/CDRW drive won't need anymore drivers, since Windows automatically installs one for it. I assume the problem you're having is that the drive is not able to read CDs/DVDs or burn a disc, correct?

If that is the case you can actually follow this microsoft KB article:

This will give you indepth help on what to do. I would recommend that you do the removal of the upper filters and lower filters in the registry.

You can test if the optical drive works in Safe Mode, by pressing F8 on startup and choosing Safe Mode, then logging into yourr account. See if the disc is read in Safe Mode, if it does, then you have a program that is conflicting with the drive. I would recommend that you run MSCONFIG, goto Startup tab and disable most if not all of the startup items, then click on APPLY then OK.

The next thing is running the diagnostics for the computer to see if there any reported hardware problems. Now if all tests passed, the next step is reseating the optical drive (if possible) check the computer manual on how to do procedure, otherwise you may have to call up Dell Technical Support.

Now you may have to replace the drive itself since it could be defective now.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

How do i connect an AD-7710H to USB?

You can purchase a SATA to USB converter from a number of web sites, but it would be just as cheap to buy an external USB DVD writer.

Usually its just plug and play on the Mac. The software with the .exe is for Windows. I'd just plug it in via USB and see if it shows up on your regular Mac burning software.

Hi , my mail request ID is WTM201101251546565307. I am unable to play CD/DVD after inserting them into laptop/netbook even though i have plug the two USB into the usb ports. i keep hearing sounds...

There is a large chance your laptop/netbook does not provide adequate power to properly power the unit, this is the case in 80% of netbooks/laptops and portable PC's. The only way through this is to purchase a USB WALL POWER CABLE or USB AC Adapter, then can be purchased anywhere from $2.00 to the higher end ones for $19.99 with all the bell's, whistles and additional outlets, you can find them on AMAZON.COM or BUY.COM or anywhere.

Hope that helps, you will see the use and this is the future of power units, USB is the future of power, and USB requires no voltage and less conductivity to produce power. Safe, low required power for the world!!! LOL!! It is how it is people!

How do you set the drive up to work?

It should have a quick installation guide, a USB "Y" cable and a disc with Turbo Engine, ASUS Live Firmware Update, and Power2Go on it. The drive does not plug into a wall outlet; rather, it pulls its power from two USB 2.0 ports on your computer. This is a nice feature if you use a laptop.
Typically you would run the software and then after (or sometimes during you will be prompted), the software is installed you just plug it in and the computer should recognize it. Should be pretty easy. If it doesn't work that way simply uninstall the software, plug the unit into you computer and then run the software. If there's no prompt telling you to plug it in during the install then it can only be one of the 2 ways. I would start with the unit unplugged and wait for a prompt or for the disk to finish, if you don't have a guide.
Hope this helps

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,

Mad Dog External DVD Writer

I don't know if I can be of any help here, but I purchased my Mad Dog Multimedia MEGASTOR DVD+/-RW burner a few years ago for my PoweSpec with XP Home Edition. I recently bought a new computer installed with Windows Vista Home Premium (which yes, I actually do love) and my external Mad Dog works perfectly, I didn't even have to update any drivers, it recognizes the drive everytime I plug it in (via USB). I don't need it anymore, but it's actually a better burner than the one that came with my system, which I bought new in March, although it's now discontinued. Do you have the disk for it? If so, have you tried running the disk again? What OS and processor do you have? In the event that it might be a matter of obtaining the proper driver for it to work for you, I also am a member of a great and extremely reliable site for free driver downloads. Free membership is limited to a few downloads within a certain period of time,and then you have to wait 24 hours, but other than that there is no limit so that's what I do. Just for the record, there was a period where my old XP was out of commission and I had to resort to my very old HP Pavillion that was about 10 years old, came with Windows 98SE(when that OS was brand new) and all I needed to do to make Win98 recognize the drive was download a driver and it worked just fine. LOL, that has a processor that runs at 600 megahertz, so you can imagine if my Mad Dog worked on systems like that, XP Home and now Vista Home Premium without a hitch, I was quite impressed with their products.
