    Hi all,
    I have an old LaCie firewire cr-r, cd-rw but it is slow and does not have burn proof technology, what i would like to know is there any way that i could change the drive and put a faster and burn proof drive in the old firewire case.

    I don't see why not unless the chipset in it is specifically made for that drive. It basically a CD-RW Drive in a FireWire Case. I'd go ahead and try it. It can't hurt anything. If it doesn't then you can buy an external FireWire case.

    I have a LaCie CD-R/RW FireWire drive and I was also thinking of putting a 52x CD-R/RW burner in it. Please let us know how it goes if you try it.

    I opened up the lacie case and had a look, how do I know what Interface the cdr-rw uses i don't know the diffrence between the Interfaces. I was going to try and use a dvdr-cdrw drive.
