    External DvD burner issue's
    Hey I was given a lite-on DVD burner for xmas but I had to buy an enclosure which I did (firewire) and it all seems to be working fine except only toast can recognize it as "disc burning compatible" but under system profiler it says cd-rw and DVD Rw drive but then under that it says disc burning not supported. Which makes it impossible to burn with disk utility which could be annoying. Im gonna upgrade to 10.4 from 10.3.9 but if that does not fix this isuue what could?

    Try Patchburn: It allows unsupported burners to be used with disk utility etc.

    Would you know if Patchburn is okay to use on Intel Macs? The site hasn't been updated since December. Cheers.

    You should not need patchburn on an Intel mac.
