10.3: Add support for any third-party CD-R burner
Authored by: Meyerson on Dec 28, '03 03:46:19PM
This worked wonderfully for our iBook SE running Panther and an Acomdata 32x12x40x drive (Lite-On LTR-32123S innards). iTunes and iPhoto recognize the drive just as they should. But make sure to reboot your machine (including all multiple-login users) completely after creating/placing this file. I thought at first that the process had failed. Here's the name.drprofile text file I created and inserted in the (root)\Library\DiscRecording\DeviceProfiles folder (had to create DiscRecording and DeviceProfiles):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

... but, I should add, the Finder still doesn't recognize unformatted disks in the Acomdata machine. (Any tips on that?)

I take it back. The Finder does see those discs now. All's swell.
