10.3: Add support for any third-party CD-R burner
Authored by: Todd Dixon on Dec 01, '03 10:28:51PM

My Aopen CRW4852 (48x24x52x) just won't come up in the system profiler on the ATA Bus. Other drives on the other ATA bus do. Tried all these suggestions. No luck. Yet I boot back in to 9 and bingo - we have burner.

I have tried hexediting this and drprofiling that. No joy. Needless to say DRUTIL is no good here because it sees no drives. I got the information for the profile from mac os 9 Toast and system profile. Tried mimicking other AOPEN drives that did have entries.

Does anyone else's Mac refuse to see the burner on the ATA bus altogether when in 10.3.1 or does it see the drive but just refuse to allow burning on it?

Fed up and shitty about having to go out and buy another burner.

same here, i have a BUSlink CD-RW that worked fine until Mac OS 10.3 came out with it's .drprofile madness. i see the drive fine from OS 9 and it worked (albiet intermittently) in 10.2 but since 10.3, no joy. i think my problem lies in the fact that there's nothing in the Vendor ID field on the drive, so i can't put anything in the Vendor IS string in the .drprofile
