10.3: Add support for any third-party CD-R burner
Authored by: tom7711 on Nov 19, '03 03:49:05AM

Could someone fill in the blanks for me and tell me where I am going wrong.

Is this fix only for Jaguar or can it be used with Panther as well?

ALL help would be appreciated so I can have a finished step-by-step guide.

My drive is an NEC ND-1300A enclosed in a Lacie external firewire.

1. Input the command "drutil info" this will give you the device output as below: (depending on what your drive is of course)

Vendor Product Rev
PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4012A 1.05

Interconnect: FireWire
SupportLevel: None
Cache: 4096k
CD-Write:
DVD-Write:
Strategies:

Q. Do I use Terminal to input the command and if I do, what is the FULL command line for drutil info.

2. Create a file with a similar name in the directory below:

System/Library/Frameworks/DiscRecording.Framework/Versions/A/Resources/DevicePlugins/

Q. Is this the correct path.

3. Use the file below and save as your own profile (ie: PX-W4012A.drprofile) in the DevicePlugins folder.

Q. How do I make a new file and save.

4. Copy the output of the Product-info you got with the drutil command and change <string>CD-R PX-W4012A</string>
NOTE: Copy ALL spaces, there are more than one!
