Cd-r Drive And External Usb

In preparing to install OSX, I had to do some moving things around. In the process I ran into a glitch with my Yamaha 8x8x24 internal CD-R. It never worked quite right in my Beige G3 desktop (later rom rev. $77D45F2), but did a fine job burning CD's. Anyway, I put the original Apple CD reader back in , and moved the CD-R to an external enclosure attached via USB (I have a USB add on card).

The drive is recognised by the system profiler as Mass Storage (but does not see it as a Yamaha CD-R unit), and does read CD's on insertion. However, the system profiler says "no disc burning support", AND, in Toast lite, a burner is not recognized.

any ideas?

Hi;
If you have OSX installed already,try using one of these two programs,Patchburn or BurnX Free.They should be available at Macupdate or VersionTracker.They should get your mac to recognize the burner.
