i am totally new to this, but here goes....I installed a Lite-on 1633 dvdrw in my G4 (mdd) 867, 1.75ram and it worked fine until a few days ago. the problem is I'm not sure what happened, but it is not working now. It has power, will open and close, but not read any disc! or write to them. It is also making a noise now when I put the cd in, but in toast it will eject cd and say put in recordable disc, when I know it is blank!
I know there is new firmware that I need to install, but I am not sure how to do this? I have virtual pc, but it doesn't seem to work...I also have access to a pc computer, so I could take it out and install the firmware in the pc??
Any help would be appreciated, since I'm not sure what to do at this point or where to start? Are there any mac utilities that would tell me what is going on or where could I look? console?
