10.2.2 killed my CD-RW drive

in macOS edited January 2014
I think the title sums it up...

My CD-RW drive (Iomega 40x12x48 firewire) is non-functional after installing the 10.2.2 update. It will no longer read CDs in the Finder, and it no longer is able to burn CDs either. I get a message in iTunes saying, "no CD burning software detected", or something similar.

I keep a clean, well-maintained system, and I am running 10.2.2 on a 400 MHZ PowerBook G3 Pismo with 640 MB of RAM. Yes, the drive worked perfetcly before the update, and I have done nothing to my system other than updating to 10.2.2.

Anyone else seeing this problem?

    Try checking the drive database at XLR8yourmac.com. In many cases, updating the software will change a file that has the model number for your CD burner. Mine is an internal Toshiba SD-R1202 and in order to make it work I had to replace a device plugin file.
