Que! Firewire CDRW conflics.
Posted on 2002-04-15
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.
