Use Oxford 911 chipset enclosures with non-standard drives System
After moving a Lite-on CD/RW drive to a FireWire enclosure, I found I had trouble getting it to be recognized by both my Macs and my XP machine. After a long search, I came across this report on xlr8yourmac.com. Basically, you have to Modify the firmware to report drives with non-standard sigs (a checkbox available from the Advanced options in the Modify Configuration Information section).

But after finding the latest firmware uploader, I found it had been restricted. The latest unrestricted version is available from Triumph's support page.

Thank you! The link to the Triumph's website provided a firmware uploader and modification tool to my ADSTech Pyro Drive Kit that works in Mac OS X. And a new firmware as well. ;)

Cheers!

Just a quick warning to any one out there that may be tempted to play.
The restrictions in the most recent versions were put in because a few people had caused major problems in their firmwares and without basic electronics knowledge it is not easy to fix.
