External Case for DVD-R/RW doesn't show atapi driver
Posted on 2004-09-10
I have a question relating to my external case. After numerous times of trying to write to a DVD, I keep getting "scsi command aborted". I looked in the log from Nero and this is what I got.
Windows XP 5.1

You will notice under the adapter driver for the DVD, there is no adapter driver listed, just <>. Also under the CDRom Device-Map, the Drive isn't listed. The DVD-R is seen under "My Computer" with a drive letter, and the external enclosure that it is in has worked with other devices in it (hard drives, cd-rw's). I am going to try to get a usb cable that is 2.0 certified but I don't think that is it. The Chipset for my external enclosure is from Oxford Semiconductors (uf922ds) if that is any help. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for the DVD drive also, and still no luck. Any suggestions to get my enclosure listed under CDRom Device Map and have an ATAPI driver associated? Thanks alot!
