    can i use my sony dvd writer with mac mini?
    I try to connect my Sony DRU-500A DVD+-RW writer to Mac, using a IDE to USB cable.
    It is not detected. What should Ido? Any software to upgrade? Thx.

    You'll need to use Patchburn...but it should work. Do a google search for Patchburn...and you'll find all that you need to know.

    Finally, I bought a 5.25" enclosure (USB, HK$180) for my Sony DRU-500A DVD +-RW writer, it works fine with my Mac mini now. No need to use download any driver for it.
