10.3: Add support for any third-party CD-R burner
Authored by: machard on Feb 24, '04 12:06:34AM

Thought I would add my 2 cents... I've added a I/O Magic (packaged IDE1008) 8x DVD±RW, DVD±R, CD-RW, CD-R. Basically works: I'm clear in iTunes, iPhoto, Disk Utility and iDVD (sort of... I keep getting illegal blah, blah at the end of stage 4, really pissing me off. iDVD is obviously why I got a DVD burner). Anyway drutil info below:


   Interconnect: ATAPI
   SupportLevel: Unsupported
        Cache: 2048k
       CD-Write: -R, -RW, BUFE, CDText, Test, IndexPts, ISRC
      DVD-Write: -R, -RW, +R, +RW, BUFE, Test
     Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO

And Profile:

      </dict>
      <key>DRDeviceProfileVersion</key>
      <integer>1</integer>
    </dict>
  </array>
</plist>

The log shows that when I'm trying to burn in iDVD that instead of burning a burning strategy of DVD-DAO it's trying CD-TAO. Not sure how to get around that bad boy.

Cheers all!
