    i hope i can get this straight...
    the lg dvd drive, HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22NP20: can burn cd's but not dvds.
    i'm using " BURN" with "Patch Burn" (or with out) to no avail. The drive shows up as "vendor supported" in sys pro but when i try to open a file to burn ,no file is accessible. local Mac-geek says try to reinstall os, but drive ejects disk
    i cannot open drawer except at restart
    I'M kink of stupid so could replies be dumbed down a bit??
    I'm running os 10.4 11

    Just a suspicion. But could your OS just be too ancient to have proper drivers for the drive? A G3 was probably never considered for it.

    Ya Know? My roomie (windohs 7) says the same thing.
    I started out trying "Burn" with no end of issuses, Yesterday I got "Toast 6"and started burning my first disc at around 3 p.m. At 12:30 A.M. I finally stopped th "burn" still in the encoding file stage.
    Now, my aquaintane, The Mac Geek, suggested I alternatly remove single sticks of ram while attempting the install of toast(as the install was not taking) this succeded, but I was down then to what 348 ram... this still does not seem to cover the extrem slowness of the burn
