Question Where Can I But A New DVD Burner !!!


Hi anyone out there know where I can buy a new IDE DVD burner for my Amiga 1200/FastATA MKIII setup.

I ordered one yesterday from Vesalia (which was supposed to be in stock) but got an email this morning telling me that they were no longer available.

I've scoured the internet and can't find a suitable one anywhere.

Anyone recently managed to purchase one recently and if so where !!!

Cheers

Franko

I've checked out Amigakit, and found one IDE Drive, a Panasonic, but there are no details on it (not even if it's a burner or rom). I sent them an email to ask what the model number is so I could check out it's specs but never received a reply.

Although it's a Liton LH-20A I am trying to replace. I have recently purchased both a LiteOn and a Samsung Drive from an Online PC store but neither worked (the both locked up my HDs whenever a disk was inserted in them).

Cheers for the tip though...

We did not receive your email until 18:09 so maybe the mail server is slow.. also check your Spam filters..

Hi Amigakit
Checked my email and found your email (it was in a Folder Called SPAM !).

I went straight to your sight and placed an order using paypal but at the very last moment I was greeted by an error message and no way back to your sight with just a message from paypal telling me to check my email in half an hour to see if the order went through.

So now I don't know if the order went through ok. I'll have to wait and see if I get a confirmation email from paypal.

I thought the internet was supposed to make life easy for such things, but I don't seem to be having much luck at all with it....

Hi RMK305

If your still following this, it looks like I've found one but just my luck that the order doesn't seem to have gone through. Now I'll have to wait and see if paypal confirms it as I don't want to reorder and end up buying 2 new burners.

I think it's going to take me a bit of time to get used to this internet malarky....

Well look's like I've finally managed to track one down at AmigaKit. Ordered it this morning, it's a Panasonic, don't know which model or any of the specs though as there are no details on the Amigakit site.

They sent me an email confirming that it will work with with the FASTATA MKIII but no details or model number so I could check out the specs first. Just have to wait and see if this one works (fingers crossed).

Wow !!!, 280 odd folk looked at these posts but only 4 replied. I can only assume that all the folk looking here were hoping to find the same answer as me.

Well when I get the new Panasonic DVD that i've purchased from AmigaKit in a few days, I'll put a post here letting you know if it works and how well it works. Then hopefully if that's what you were looking for then you'll have your answer.

No but was wondering why you were buying a standard PC DVD burner from an Amiga dealer when any local computer shop could have helped most likely.

But perhaps I've missed the obvious

Default Re: Where Can I But A New DVD Burner !!!


Hi took delivery of a new Pioneer DVD drive this morning (don't know why I said Panasonic before !)

I have tried it out and can't get it to burn any DVD's at all. Tried FryngPan / AmiDVD and my own Progs (see the Thread 'Opinions Wanted For New DVD Burner Utils).

FryingPan attempts to burn the disc and after a very long wait (it looks like it's burning the disk all the way to the end) all I end up with is a disc with just a few Kb of data on it (another coaster for the collection!!!)

AmiDVD just sits there with 0% in the progress bar and the sleep pointer, the only way out is resetting the Amiga and a disk with just a few Kb again (yet another coaster !!!)

DVDburnISO & DVDduplicate (my own progs) start to burn the discs but at least they stop after burning a few Kb of data with an error message. (still another coaster for the collection !!!)

I have contacted AmigaKit (where I bought the drive) for help and I am waiting (hopefully) for a reply from them.

Does anyone out there use this drive, it's a Pioneer DVR-A18LBK. If you do and yours is working fine, could you please contact me and let me know how yours is set up.

I have tested it on the following set ups

A1200 Blizzard060/PPC603 60Mhz/240Mhz/ 256Meg Fast Ram / 2x500Gb HD's / FASTATA MKII
A1200 GVP030 40Mhz / 4 Meg Fast ram / 160Gb HD / 4xEIDE

Cheers Folks
