I just bought a cd-r drive from an Apple outfit, however when I try to burn a cd the mac says the drive is not supported. Whats up? How can I fix this?

Thanks,

Did it come with any software or was it just a bare drive?

It looks like you're still running OS 9, chances are your OS version doesn't have driver support for it. If it didn't come with a driver disc, you're probably out of luck.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

OS 9 works fine with CD-Rs. Have you got version 9.2?

I have OS 9.2.2, the drive reads things okay (I just played an audio cd in it, then I ran my hardware test cd, and it worked fine). The drive came with no software. Any ideas?

Thanks again.
