patchburn doesn't just work for burning.

Patchburn modifies the apple cd driver for the cd dvd drive so that the drive not only burns but functions as well.

It's original intentions where to help with burning cd's in itunes but a bunch of hackers found it also installs drives other then just dvd burners and cd burners it will install regular dvd drives and even cd drives by just changing the plist file and removing the drive burner checksum.
