    Can any of you Guys help me?
    I have made my gigabyte dvdburner an exteranl one and am using a Via 2.0 usb 5 ports.
    The only problem is....I am having problems for an updated driver due to SP1 with Windows XP.
    I dunno what Im doing wrong but the puter just doesnt seem to wanna accept the USB driver.
    At my wits end here..any help appreciated.

    I have tried both drivers to no success. The driver disk states I have to have xp sp1 and i have on my puter. But it seems that the usb card isnt giving the speed it should.
    Ihave an Athlon AMD 1200gz, 768mb ram, 80gb hard drive, cd rom in the computer and decided to put into an ecternal casing (dvd burner) as it was so slow in reading and burning dvds. Ive got 5GB used on my hard drive. Hope this helps. Thanx heaps.

    You may need to install SP1 to load drivers. You can try this link..............


    If it doesn't work, install SP1 and you should not need further drivers. Your external USB speed will be 12Mbs untill you get drivers.
