User disktool and System Profiler to eject stubborn CDROM discs
Authored by: Lt. Dan on Dec 10, '03 09:00:18PM

I also upgraded my G4/400 to an A05. Under Jaguar, my computer will go into a total kernel panic (Black screen and white text over my OS X desktop) if I leave any CD, DVD in the drive for any length of time without using. It is totally unrecoverable without a power button reboot. I tried updating firmware through Pioneer with no success. I avoid the crash by not leaving CD's in the drive. Everything else work fine. I am going to try the Spin utility mentioned. I have since upgraded to Panther but have not put the machine in a condition to crash ... Yet. I wish Apple would provide the neccesary Firmware that they put in "factory" drives.
