I've got my Beige G3 all set up in classic and everything is working nicely except for one thing: I can't get my CD-ROM drives recognized in X. They are not Apple drives, and I understand this creates issues with their support. In classic, I use the Toast CD Reader extension and they're both recognized no sweat. I've got a generic 40x OEM pulled from an HP desktop (IDE) and an external Yamaha 4x4x16 burner (SCSI - this is kinda a franken drive, I stripped a 300e out of it's external case and put the Yamaha in there). My question is: Is there an equivalent to the Toast CD Reader extension for X? I've tried googling, but I didn't come up with anything. I want to install my 10.1 upgrade, but it won't recognize the CD in X (This disk is unusable - continue initialize or eject) and I tried copying the contents of the CD to the harddrive and it wouldn't work.
Any help is always appreciated!
Cue Dr Webster...
What's that supposed to mean?
"Cue Dr. Webster" and the picutre of disgrace.
Not sure where or how, but I have seen some threads on resetting the parameters for certain things in Firmware. Start off by restting your PRAM and then ressetting you nvram.
A more experienced soul may be able to better help you along those lines.
If you have a problem with the way I do things, you can tell me via PM.
nor do I believe FIRE IN THE DISCO has one, rather I believe this was just a call for the standard picture you provide when you clean up double posts (that two headed guy from 'Hitchhikers Guide'- name escapes me again). I almost cried from laughing so hard when you did that to me the first time, cuz I knew I had goofed and had never seen that pic before.
I think this was more encouragement for you to do things the way you do things. No ill meant here...
Well, in that case...
