Hi guys… I’ve been reading through a number of threads on here, and some come close to describing my problem but none pose a solution.
I bought this drive from LaCie in a USB2 enclosure, and plugged into my iBook G4. For the first day or so it seemed to burn OK now it does all sorts of weird things.
Primarily, when burning from Roxio Toast 6.0.5, the burn gets approximately halfway through, the green light on the front of the drive goes out, and Toast hangs. I click abort to try and abort the burn and Toast does nothing. I can’t even force quit the application… the only way to return my otherwise stable setup to normal is to hard-power-off (ie, holding the power switch till it just dies) and starting again.
On top of this, the external dvdrw drive won’t eject the disc most of the time. I’ve tried burning all kinds of data (dvd-r movies, data backups) and they all seem to have the same issue.
I’ve tried different firmwares from the TDB.rpc1.org site, and they don’t seem to make any difference.
Curiously, the drive seems to be working OK from a Windows machine… but the Mac just doesn’t like it and I can’t figure out why.
Can anyone shed some light on the situation?
