    I have just purchased my brand new internal Pioneer 108 and have installed it on my G4 tower. Toast 6 Titanium sees it. System profiler sees it (see below):

    Now my questions are: Why don't i get more than 4X dvd burn? and why do i constantly have 2 buffer errors (see attachments)? I have included my system info below. In simulation mode the cd burns but the dvd still does not.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Stylis :confused:

    Solved

    Ok, I have figured it out on my own... I'll post my solution just in case someone else can benefit.

    1. Q: Why don't i get more than 4X dvd burn?
    A: The disks I was using were disks that I had previously bought
    (generic no brand name)---> they were only meant for a 4X burn

    2. Q: Why do i constantly have 2 buffer errors?
    A: I needed to update my Toast to vs. 6.0.7... D'oh! :rolleyes:

    The drivers haven't been updated to OSX 10.3.5 yet. But the newest update to Toast actually states it supports the Pioneer 108.



    I hope it helps. :cool:
