    Has anyone actually managed to get their Panny E85 to work with their LG4120B drive when using RAM discs?

    I had assumed that I would be able to record on RAM on either and then transfer it to the other. Not so. I know that others have had problems as there was this thread a while back:

    But has anyone managed to get them to work together? I've already ruined a couple of RAMs :rolleyes:

    Nope.

    There is also a thread about this problem on the DigitalSpy forums.

    I bought an external enclosure and a Samsung DVD-ROM drive whch can read DVD-RAMs. However, this is not an ideal solution, as I find that odd blocks of data (up to 64K) get corrupted when copying the large VRO files onto my hard disc. I have a useful and powerful Hex Editor which I bought for another purpose that I use to correct the data when this corruption occurs, but it's all a bit messy. I initially thought that the corruption was being introduced in my PC's bus, but after a major PC failure which resulted in a new (and different) motherboard and a new hard disc I find that the problem still occurs. The only elements which are the same are the enclosure and the DVD-ROM drive, so one of these must be unable to cope with the continuous transfer of large amounts of data.

    Getting back to the LG4120, has anybody with the problem tried upgrading the firmware? Has this helped?

    Oh well, looks like another reason to go for the Tosh over the Panny... or at least to NOT buy the LG drive.

    I have a tosh with an LG4120 and so far no problems with DVD-Ram's


    Maybe the LG4160 might be better

    I have an E85 and an LG 5120 External drive. No problems at all reading files written by the E85. Havent tried the other direction yet.
