Needs a generic SCSI driver?
Authored by: bluehz on Aug 20, '02 09:15:07AM
This tidbit from the cdrecord site makes me think there might be a glimmer of hope:
ATAPI-SCSI emulation is the native method of supporting ATAPI devices. Just imagine that IDE is one of many SCSI transport mechanisms. This are some SCSI transports: - Parallel SCSI (what most people call SCSI) - SCSI over fiber optics - SCSI over IEEE 1394 (Fire Wire) - SCSI over USB - SCSI over IDE (ATAPI) As you now see, the use of the naming convention "ATAPI-SCSI emulation" is a little bit misleading. It should rather be called: "IDE-SCSI host adapter emulation"
Full text here My external FW is also a QPS and is controlled by Native OS X drivers - works beautifully - never had a day of problems from it.
