Custom Configuration of DVD just hangs

Recommended Posts

I just purchased Retrospect Desktop Edition V6.1.126 running on my Intel Core Duo iMac


I have two DVD writers...one internal and one external connected via Firewire. After installation, I added the Driver Update to support the internal Pioneer drive. All seems to work fine with that.


When I tried to do a custom configuration for my Sony DVD RW DRU-830A connected via Firewire, i insert a DVD-R media and the progress screen simply is trying to determine the write method. The drive light does not flash. The activity manager for Mac OS shows Retropect is not responding.


Here is the log...
