1.25GHz iMac 17" with Pioneer DVR-106D does not work

Recommended Posts

I have Retro Workgroup 5.0 with the latest drivers and I cannot get the iMac 1.25 17" to recognise the DVD/CD burner. The drive is a Pioneer DVR-106D rev A606.

 

In Devices the drive is visible and I know it can at least read disks. However when I set up a back up selecting DVD/CD from the media type clicking Execute tells me that no backup devices are available.

 

I have sucessfully backed up to FW.

 

Any ideas?

Quit Retrospect.

Eject any media from the drive.

Launch Retrospect

Go to Configure > Devices > Device Status

Is the drive seen?

The device still is not recognised as a backup device.

 

I just read that 10.2.8 allows this drive to be used "natively" on the 17" iMac. Not sure what that means or if it is relavent to this discussion. I think that it means that iTunes and the like can burn. I have 10.2.7 at the moment so it may be worth my upgrading.
