10.3: Add support for any third-party CD-R burner
Authored by: lluistar on Oct 29, '03 12:12:44PM

"To find the burner characteristics, the terminal command "drutil" returns the required info"

I've got this from from hardmac.com posted by Lionel.

10.3: Add support for any third-party CD-R burner
Authored by: freddiepingpong on Oct 29, '03 10:22:51PM

It works for me to the degree that my drive (Samsung 332B) is recognized and disc copy will burn, but the verification will inevitably fail. Does anyone know the code that it doesn't like?

10.3: Add support for any third-party CD-R burner

After enabling your drive to make your CDR work with iphoto and Disk Utility now you can make it work with itunes4.

download this file
http://www.macbidouille.com/downloads/iTunes4allburner.sit

then go to applications and control click itunes "show package content" go to /Content/MacOS/ and make a backup of the itunes app there (rename it itunes.bak) and put the file that was downloaded and decompressed there.

close your windows and fire up itunes. Select a playlist and burn with your unsupported drive. you can check in itunes preferences/ burning to see your burner in the list first.
i have a HP 9600 external scsi and it is recognized (it should work with usb cdr also)

Enjoy this one.

here is the setup".drprofile" for the 9600 scsi
