Lacie d2 DVD RW external importing music CDs into iTunes

I have a Lacie d2 DVD RW USB external on a Lenovo T61p with Windows Vista Home and iTunes 7.6. When I put in a music CD and try to import it into iTunes, iTunes reads the files in one second and creaes them as 3K files that do not play (0:00 seconds in length). Doing it from the built-in DVD / CD-ROM on the laptop work correctly. Music CDs will play on the d2 using WMP, but not iTunes. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    Thank you. Your link was widely reported on line, but now it 404s on apple.com. Also, I am using iTunes 7.6 and it appears that fix was for earlier versions of iTunes. Anyway, my Lacie still doesn't properly rip CDs.

Apple late Thursday posted iTunes Repair Tool for Vista 1.0, a software update that fixes iTunes issues reported by new Windows Vista users. According to widespread reports, music purchased from the iTunes Store could not be played in iTunes on the new Microsoft operating system released this week. Users reported that they received a message saying their computer was not authorized to play the purchased tracks. “The iTunes Repair Tool for Vista 1.0 will repair permissions for important files required by iTunes to play your iTunes Store purchases,” Apple states in the brief release notes.

I have no sound when playing my dvd+RW


Hei

Did you install the audio cable? If so, you could have a bad contact.. I'd try Kaffeine, that will play audio cds without an audio cable, so you know the drive is ok. so try this because this is the solution , from which i fixed my own prob .

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,

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 Wikipedia.org,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infra_Recorder
2.Infra Recorder homepage,
http://infrarecorder.org/
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.
