Firewire cable for external LG DVD writer

Post by Ray » Thu, 29 Sep 2005 02:00:47


I got a new external LG DVD writer with firewire and usb ports. I use a
6-pin cable to connect to firewire port of my desktop pc. It does not work
until I change to another 6-pin cable or a 6-pin to 4-pin (small connector)
cable. I am at loss why the full 6-pin cable is not working with the
writer. Your guidance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ray

Where are you plugging in that "4-pin small connector"?

Most likely the original 6 pin cable is defective.

Peter,

I plug the 4-pin small connector in my Sony desktop computer that provides
on 6-pin connector on the rear and one 4-pin connector on the front.

Rod,

I can't say that as I tried the cable with my iPod docking and works
correctly.
