Hi guys

My brother just gave me his backpack 4-4--32 CDRW.

2 questions

1 The manufacture has a USB adaptor for this baby, would it be worthwhile purchasing and running through USB instead of EPP-ECP port? Would I see a performance increase?

2 Since I am running this through the ecp port I think my memory has drooped a bit. Can anybody recommend a memory tweak for external CDRW running through the parallel port?

Woah! That's exactly the first CD-RW I owned. Mine stopped working a little under two years, and it cost a pretty penny back then. If you happen to need any spare parts for it let me know, lol.
