Hi, I'm having trouble with my powermac G4 mirrored door running 10.3.9 I purchased this when it first came out. It runs great almost as good as the Quicksilver G4's. Anyway It has a Combo Drive as well as A Super Drive built in. They worked fine until recently when It just stopped working. I created a new user, thinking it was a user error, but the same problem, the system just can't find it. I replaced the ribbon cable thinking it was the cable that died, but still the same problem. Until I plug in either one or the other, they both won't be visible at the same time. Their both on the same chain, but I don't see why the system wouldn't like the way their set up, via master, slave. Since they were working fine for years. I can either plug one or the other for them to be visible, they won't work together. Any ideas? Thanks

Chris

Check on the brand of dvd+rw/-rw and cds

the brand might be the issue of not burning dvds or cds ..

buy another brand and see if that clears up the problem

I agree, I would check the brand because it does make a difference sometimes when it comes to burning.
