    Looking for help, hope this isn't a duplicate.
    Recently upgraded my Emac 700MHz with a combo drive (OSX 10.3.4)
    Bought a pioneer dvd-103/a03 off ebay.
    Installation went great.
    Now drive will read data/music cds, will not burn cd-r, will not burn dvd, won't even play a dvd (just spits it back out).
    Updated the firmware for the 103 drive without a problem.
    Emac recognizes:
    ATA-3 Bus:
    Manufacturer: PIONEER
    Model: PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-103
    Revision: 1.90
    Serial Number:
    Drive Type: CD-RW/DVD-RW
    Disc Burning: Apple Supported/Shipped
    Removable Media: Yes
    Detachable Drive: No
    Protocol: ATAPI
    Unit Number: 0
    Socket Type: Internal

    So is this a software problem, if so, how do I fix?
    Or did I get a bad drive?
    Help would be greatly appreciated it!

    I had the same problem when I put a DVD-RAM drive in my B&W G3. It would not play DVD's or DVD-RAM disks.
    After a reinstall of Jag with the DVD-RAM it works fine.
