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?

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:

You can read lots about these issues at, there is a Drive Compatibility database to find specific info, and believe me there is lots of it,

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