It works! Also, you can get the extension from the DVD

Thank you! This comment just saved my disc burner!

I have a NEC DVD burner (pulled from an old windows box), circa 2005, in a LaCie enclosure (circa 2003). The drive, according to system preferences in Leopard was "Vendor supported". In Snow Leopard, it wouldn't even show up.

Of course, due to my Time Machine hard drive failing (sheesh), my old Leopard backups had been erased. Fortunately, you can also get this extension from the Leopard install DVD, should you have one, using Pacifist. (it's in the base system package) It would assume it's on any Leopard DVD, as mine is a CPU drop-in upgrade disc.

In my case, after I backed up the 10.6 version of the extension and overwrote it with the 10.5 version, a dialog box popped up saying that the extension was corrupt/unusable. I just hit OK, then used Disk Utility to repair permissions, and rebooted, and now it works just fine.
