Re: External USB CD/DVD that works with X5000

Well I went ahead and ordered it and hope for the best. Should know by Friday if it works, even on a fresh cold boot. Don't want to have to unplug all the time but as long as I can use it to install software... or rips music CDs, I will be happy. The nice LG external I just purchased from Best Buy f...

Re: External USB CD/DVD that works with X5000

I have a RGB keyboard connected to my X5K and it must need more USB juice than what the front or some of the rear USB ports offer. If I am not connected to a certain USB port on the motherboard, my X5K will not boot and all fans go full bore with black screen. If in the lower USB ports on motherboar...

Re: External USB CD/DVD that works with X5000

I had to do a format and reinstall of the OS because of the garbled text issue Acill also had on his system. After that, I hooked the drive up again and still get a power issue (I get the popup) and it disconnects the drive when hooking directly up to either the front or back of any of the USB 2.0 ...

Does it stay connected and allow hot swapping of CD DVD? Or do you have to reboot for each time you need to access a CD or DVD?

Are you using this in an X5K?

Re: External USB CD/DVD that works with X5000

Since I have tried 3 different brands.. is there something special one has to do, driver wise, to allow a USB CD/DVD to work under Amiga OS?

Maybe that is where my problem is. Maybe I need to put some special driver in Dev directory?

External USB CD/DVD that works with X5000

Anyone successfully running an external USB CD/DVD on their X5K? I now have my X5K in a new case that does not have a 5.25" bay so need to look at options to read/write CD/DVDs, preferably a external USB model. If you have one that works, please offer me info on it. I did try one that I already...
