SE/30 + external SCSI cdrom burner

Hello there,

I try to connect the external cdrom (Yamaha CRW6416SX, id 3, terminator on) with a K3B burned data cdrom inside to my SE/30 Mac OS 7.1 but nothing appeared on the computer.

Of course I am unsure of the hardware so there could be a problem on this side.

But should I install some kind of driver to basically read cdrom ? I assume, like for PC, something must also be installed to burn cdrom ?

It would be great if you point me the good direction to get this cdrom drive alive.

Regards.

Philippe

Factory CDROMs and not burned

Do you have any alternative CDROMs to try?

Especially ones that are professionally mastered, and not burned?

Mac Driver Museum

There seems to be some scuttlebutt that the first Mac CDRom driver was released with Mac OS 7.6.

But here is a link to the Mac Driver Museum so you can try these and maybe they will work in 7.1.

Ultimately you may want to upgrade to 7.5.3 or maybe even 7.6 if you want to add connectivity to your SE/30:

Check out this excellent primer on the topic of Classic Mac Networking.

Apple lock-in

The CDROM driver from Apple has a device firmware check and only operates with OEM Apple CDROM drives.

You can get a third-party driver that supports other brands of drives, like FWB CDROM Toolkit v3, at the usual abandonware sites. There are also patched Apple drivers that remove the device check. Without one of these, you won't be able to use the Yamaha to read discs.

Thanks for the informations.

I try to send the softwares to the SE/30 via ftp (I have try binary and auto mode). I use Fetch 2.1.2.

Transferring works well but everything I transmit by this way look corrupted to Stuffit !

I have to solve that first because lot of files do not fit into a floppy but have not find how yet ?

Make sure to set binary mode

Can you do a checksum on the file on both sides?  That would let you know if the file is getting corrupted during transfer or your original file is bad.
