I put in a CD-R Burner into my Blue and White G3. The problem is, is that some times the Cds will mount but most of the time they do not. But in 0S 9 they mount fine. What is the deal with that? Any help would be great. And so you know I have checked out Apple for the Answer and there is not one. The Burner works well with Toast, But is not a burner on apples list of support.


Thanks inAdvanced

When I burn Audio CDS they show up  fine. But When I burn others or even put in my cd's from Apple, they don't show up. I have no idea why it does this, but I am thinking that perhapes my system file is corrupt. I noticed on a site they where talking about finding a file in the system folder, under /etc/. But I have not idea where that is. I have used swap cop, and I have two hard drives. When I used swap cop, I placed the swaped file on my other drive, The one other than my main drive. I don't know if that might be something doing it, But I have not read anything bad about that.

I hope this info help to try and figure this stuff out.

Hmm...Sometimes drives will refuse to read discs that were burned on certain brands of media, or with certain brands of drives. But your's doesnt seem to do that. Are you using 10.2.4?

They are check marked. The New Finder Window shows Computer as checked off. Should it be Home?

Also The file I was talking about was something different. Its located in a place /etc/something

You can set New Finder Windows to whatever you like. Has no bearing on your current problem.

This wouldnt by chance be a SCSI CD-R?

No Its not SCSI. Its a CD Burner that I installed. I took out the DVD player and put in my own burner.

Hmm..well, best i can say is that somehow its an unsupported burner, doesnt support some filesystems, or you're missing some system components. Anybody's guess as to which. What brand is it?

I belive its a brand that is not supported. But it shows up in Toast as Atapi CD-R/RW 32x10 (MMC).

So the question is, where do I find the system file that tells me about the system?

There isnt a system file that tells you about the system. The System Profiler app would give you basic info but not relevant to this problem. What is the brand of the CD-R?

The Brand I am not sure of as of yete.  The problem still happens even if I but the DVD Rom back in. So I don't think it matters what brand it is.

Seems like "reinstall" is as valid a solution as any especially since it was an "old copy".

Weed,

I never reinstalled the OS 9. I did however decide on my own to reinstall OS X. Which seemed to do the trick. OS 9 had nothing to do with it.

I will give you the points any how.

Next Question will have to be a hard one for you.
