10.3: Add support for certain CD/DVD devices
Authored by: hasenmaus on Jan 31, '04 09:57:31AM

I believe I may have found the right area to resolve my question. I have a beige G3 with a Sonnet G4 upgrade processor. I modified my Mac with a Samsung internal CD-R/RW SW-248B drive. It works great under OS 9.2.2, but in System 10.2.8 the Apple System Profiler indicates that disc burning is not an option with this drive.

It is a real hassle to have to reboot and start-up in OS 9 in order to burn a CD. Is there a work-around to get OS 10.2.8 to recognize that this drive can burn CDs?

Thanks

The easiest way to fix this probelm is to use a little application called "Patchburn 1" - Patchburn for Jaguar. Use MacUPdate or VersionTracker to find a copy if this link doesn't work: http://www.macwelt.de/public/PatchBurn/PatchBurn1.1en.sit.

You can read lots about these issues at http://www.xlr8yourmac.com, there is a Drive Compatibility database to find specific info, and believe me there is lots of it, http://forums.xlr8yourmac.com/drivedb/search.drivedb.lasso

If you upgrade to Panther you will have to go through this process again using "PatchBurn 2" which is for Panther.
