    What OS?

    IIRC you have USB 1.0 which may not be compatible with some devices. If you get the drive to work -- you will only be able to burn at ~4x (max).

    If your laptop has a cardbus (PCMCIA) then consider getting a USB 2.0 card.

    EDIT: Oh and this should be posted in the Genius Bar...

    Thank you for the fast reply Wickes,

    (did i get your name right ?)

    I'm running OS 9.1 and indeed, my G3 only has USB 1

    built in. Could this really be the problem?

    If it does i think i know why Lacie customer support does not

    answer my question...

    Oh and i was not quite sure but now i will move the issue to the

    genius bar.

    No need to repost... the Mods will move it if they feel like it.

    Now what do you mean... not working? Please describe what happens...

    Hello, i'm back,

    What happens is simply that the cd-rw is not recognized by Toast 5.2.1 nor 5.2.3,

    although they're the custom software.

    No way

    When you connect the drive does it show up in ASP?

    Sorry, been away & not on the internet some while,

    Yes, the cd-writer shows up in the ASP.

    Meanwhile i've been wizardring with extensions and re-installing my 1.3.5 apple

    usb-driver but untill now: no hope for a better world.

    Glad to be back,
