    Unhappy Ibook G4 12" Super Drive Problem
    I just recently bought a Ibook G4 800 mghz (earlier model) off ebay and bought a super drive because the only optical drive it came with was that it could read CD's it did not come with a combo drive. I installed the superdrive and it now says that burn support is no and i cannot play or burn DVD's or CD's i emailed the guy i bought the drive from and he said that if it did not come with a drive that could play DVD's than it will not support this drive, i dont want to have to take out the drive is there any firmware or any other suggestions as to how to get this supported so i can get this thing working. THanks in advance

    I'm pretty sure this has been done before. Did you make sure all the settings on the superdrive were the same as the original CD drive? sometimes there are jumpers involved.

    Why not try Patchburn ? That has worked for me many times.
