I have bought one of those DVD RW Gericom from ALDI
I installed it as per instructions via the USB and that was OK
On the box it states that it can be connected via the USB or the Firewire socket
As usual the instructions are a bit sketchy
What I would like to know is, is there any advantage to connecting it to the Firewire.
The two cables were supplied so if there is an advantage is it just a matter of just changing the cables over ?
Any advice would be most welcome as usual

Take a look at this link click here it suggests that Firewire is usually better for sustained speed.
