I have an iBook G3 500 Mhz (Dual USB), which previously contained a plain tray load cd-rom as standard. I recently purchased a slot load combo drive and I have now installed it, however my iBook does not recognise it. When I boot it seems power is getting to the combo drive as it makes startup-sounding noises. Then when I put a CD or a DVD into it, it sucks it in and seems to try to read it, however it never shows up in Finder. System profiler does not show the drive as existing.
My current theory is that i need a different cable to run the combo drive... has anybody else had any experience in performing this upgrade... i am really stuck...
