    Lacie dvd drive problem
    I have purchase a Lacie d2 drive that uses the USB2.0 connection.
    After I install a working dvd into the system I get an error message that reads: Initialization error, a valid drive could not be located.

    I have the older type of USB plugs and thought this could be a problem with the new 2.0 plugs that the new drive might need.
    I have a G3 upgraded to a G4 and have 10.4 OS.

    My profile shows that its reconized in the system. Lacie tech. support has been emailing once a day with a question but I can't wait forever.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Texas, where else?
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    That Lacie drive is more than likely not backwards compatible with USB 1.1 or 1.0.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
