Que! Firewire CDRW conflics.

I have a QPS Que! Firewire burner.  It is the 8x4x32 model by Plextor, I think.  Anyways I have been using it for about 6 months using Mac OS 8.6 problem free.  Then I decided to get OS X.  So I installed Mac OS 9.2.1 then installed OS X 10.1.  When using itunes or Roxio Toast 5.1 (for OS X) it won't work.  When using Toast I see that it recognizes the drive.  It has the name of the burner at the bottom.  But when I try to copy, or make any cd, it says its burning but doesn't move.  I don't think it even writes anything onto the CD.  After I tried that many times I started up using OS 9.2 and tried it.  When I use Toast (an ealier version than OS X) it doesn't even recognize the drive.  It says no cd-writer found.  I tried rescanning, but it doesn't work.  Later on I tried using the Finder Built in burning process.  I put in a cd and I ask the computer to prepare it.  I then can drag files onto it.  Then I click burn from the menu and it works.  This is on OS 9.2.  This is the only way it works.  I cannot, however, make an audio cd at all.  I have given up on ideas.  I have tried so many things.  QPS website didn't help me either.  What is wrong.  Help.

There are lots of compatibility issues when using finder and disk copy burning. OS X does not support all drives, and neither does os 9. New drives do get added fairly regularly though. Same goes for Toast. You HAVE to check to make sure your drive is compatible with the software youre using. QUE drives, if i remember right, were part of a batch that were notorious for having compatibility issues. I think the latest version of Toast supports it but i doubt OS X finder does.

Well several months later I can offer some advise... They probably fixed it while you were waiting...

Boot from classic and connect to the internet...  Run Software Update. Bring your OS upto 9.2.2 and do any firmware upgrades you may need to.  Once that is done boot from the X side and run software update there.  Apple is upto 10.1.5 then visit http://www.versiontracker.com/macosx/  for an update to the latest version of Toast.
