I tried using the search function, but did not find a good answer to my problem.

I recently used Carbon Copy Cloner to upgrade my OS from 10.3.9 on a 60GB hard drive to 10.5.3 on a 500GB hard drive on my Dual mirror door G4 desktop, using the hard drive on my MacBook Pro as the source. I had previously installed a Pioneer DVR-111D DVD burner in my desktop and it has worked with OS 10.3.9 after I installed a driver from the website that I purchased the drive from. It still works if I boot into OS 10.3.9. If I boot into OS 10.5.3, the drive will not open when I press the eject button on the keyboard. When I go to system profiler in OS 10.5.3, the drive shows up as an Apple shipping drive.

Not sure what is happening. Any ideas on how to get this burner to work in 10.5.3 would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

You say "Dual mirror door G4" - what specs? And have you done the firmware update for it?

You may well need a full retail install DVD of Leopard rather than cloning your MacBook version as the MB and the MDD use completely different drivers etc. The MB system disc would not work on the MDD.. Either that or back to Panther.
