    Hi, my internal cd-rom drive died on my iMac G4, and I bought a Lacie d2 DVD-RW/CD-RW drive. However, I cannot burn CD's with it, from system profiler, it says not supported. Any idea how I can change from the internal drive to burn on this firewire drive?

    internal or external drive? i assume it's an external one. you probably need to use the supplied software (toast titanium) to burn cd or dvd's with that drive. there are only a few drives supported natively by os x.

    fig tree
    install all the necessary patches and everything (including idvd if you use iLife '04) and it should work natively in all apps :)
