#12621 - 08/30/0206:31 AMCan't Burn in 10.1.1 thru 10.1.5
The Mac: Power Mac Blue and White G3 300 mhz Rev a (Supported By Mac OS X)<br>The Burner: Que Fire! 8x4x32 Firewire (Supported By Mac OS X)<br>The Media: 700MB CD-RW TDK discs.<br>The Software: Toast Titanium 5.1.2 to 5.1.3 to 5.1.4 (Supported By Mac OS X)<br>The OS: Mac OS 10.1 thru 10.1.5<br>The Problem: Inability to burn to CD from any Application or Utility<br>The Symptoms: Drive blinks then light becomes solid, nothing happens, the drive actually spins down, the burn stops within 1 second of the start, aborting does not work, power has to be turned off from the drive to unlock Toast, or I have to Force Quit Toast. I then must turn power back on to the disc to eject it. So far, non of the discs I've tried have been made into coasters, as far as I know. This happens with iTunes, Toast, Disk Copy, and Apple Disc Burner, as well as a demo of Discribe V5.0.18, iTunes has to be force quit, as does Disc Copy, and Mac has to be restarted with Apple Disc Burner, Discribe V5.0.18 demo has to be force quit, which cause Kernel Panic, and Mac has to be restarted.<br>My Attempts: I have read forums, and reports galore for 2 days, I then spent since 11:00 am to 12:00am then 8:00am to 4:00 pm then 8:00am to 12:00PM (obviously a lot of time, spanning 3 days not counting research) reinstalling Toast, upgrading Toast, down grading Toast, installing Apple updates, and reinstalling X twice (The first time it was totally corrupt, so I had to format the drive and install again) I have ran Disk Utility, Drive 10, and even Apple's Privileges Repair utility, and tried burning in root, tried burning at a slower speed, changing FireWire ports that the cord to the drive was plugged in and a slew of other things, and nothing at all works.<br>The thing that upsets me as well: I've read of people having similar problems in 10.2.<br>The Kicker: Toast, iTunes, and Drive works flawlessly in Mac OS 9.1, PRICLESS, lol.<br><br>If you have any suggestions, please let me know, this is driving me nuts, I have installed and reinstalled X over 10 times since I've had it, and burning has never worked. I don't know what to do, all the problems other people have reported have been similar and their solutions have yet to work, please if anyone can, please help! The problem is really burning me up, heh.<br><br>Live Long and Prosper.

<br><br><br><br>Toast conflicts with disc burner in OS9, It works in OSX fine. I copied how to disable the correct extension to solve the problem. <br>Make sure this extension is turned off in OS9. Hope this works.<br><br>http://support.roxio.com/en/support/roxio_support/toast/kb_articles.html<br><br>If you're burning to a USB or Firewire based CDR / CDRW, however, then you will need to be running Mac OS 8.6 or later and you will need to enable either the ""Toast USB(A,B,C) Support"" or the ""Toast Firewire Support"" extension in addition to the Mac OS Base set of extensions in the extension manager.áááá Note: Starting in OS 9.2 Apple includes the Firewire Authoring Support and USB Authoring Support in the base set of extensions.á These extensions need to be disabled for Toast to recognize many recorders.<br>Toast is compatible with AppleÆs recording software.á However if AppleÆs extensions are controlling the CD Recorder, they will not allow Toast to access it.á If you disable USB Authoring Support and Firewire Authoring Support, Toast will be able to see the recorder.á Starting with Toast 5.0.1, Toast will also allow Apples recording software to access the recorder as well. <br><br>NOTE: If you install iTunes or Disc Burner (or update them) after you install the Toast Titanium 5.0.1 Updater, use Extensions Manager to disable ""USB Authoring Support"" and ""FireWire Authoring Support"".<br><br>Mac OS X:<br><br>Because the operating system now controls recorders, any drive that the operating system can control should be available in any recording application.á This means that iTunes, DiskBurner, and Toast will all work without conflicting with one another.<br><br><br>

I appreciate the information, and I was aware of it, but, I do not have any problems with Toast or burning at all in 9.1. I do have trouble burning in Mac OS X versions 10.1.1 thru 10.1.5, as well as in Disc Burner, I cannot burn with anything at all in Mac OS X. If there is anything that can be told to me about X and this, please do. Thanks again<br><br>Live Long and Prosper.
It's the Que drive... nothing that POS company makes is worth a darn in OSX... do a search for Que over at MacFixIt and you'll see what I mean. Even the "Supported drives" have problems.<br><br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

After days of searching, a tip from a fellow Mac Club member helped tremendously. I was refered to http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/firewire.html where i went to the cdrw section, and input my specs for 23 reports from other peple with the same or simular problem as mne. After reading the reports, one thing is clear, its not the OS, not the Drive, but its my Mac. Apparently Rev. a Blue and White macs not only have the ATA drive problems, but also a bad FireWire port problem, the ports work beautifully in 9, but not in X. The solution is to buy a Firewire card, particularly a OWC 3 Port FireWire PCI interface card<br>(OWCLUCT5X) This card is supported by X and 8,6 and up, and is working beautifully with everyone else, as soon as I get the 30 bucks, I’m going to try this, and prey it works. Info can be found at http://eshop.macsales.com/Catalog_Item.cfm?ID=4480&Item=OWCLUCT5X<br><br>Thanks again for everyone’s help, however, if anyone has other ideas, I will gladly try them. Thanks.<br>By the way, I went with Que because after researching, I hadn't heard of any problems with them, and I never had had problems with them, as I say above, its my mac, which was made before apple started putting cdrw's in.<br><br>Live Long and Prosper.
