Pioneer Internal SCSI DVD Drive

Pioneer makes (made?) an internal SCSI-2 DVD ROM drive. My 533DP only came with a CDR, which is pretty good, but these DVD's go for about $100 on ebay. Now I already have an old 6500 case next to my desk with a CD rom drive and a SCSI drive, both SCSI 2, installed in it, with a powersupply, everything else is stripped. I've had a home made drive tower before, but this one is goone be the best. All I need is a SCSI 2 card for my mac and a 50-pin external to 50 pin centronics cable.... but back to the point.
Pioneer has drivers for this drive, but of coarse, they are classic (its an extension) I'm on X. I don't suppose the drive will work anyway? Or I can put the extension in the libraries folder somewhere and it will work? Does anyone have any experience with this?

OS X doesn't like SCSI very much at all. Even people with cards that are listed as supported on the Apple site are having problems. I seriously doubt that 9 drivers/extensions will work for you X. With that being said, I've got no idea what you can to get this work besides begging the manufacturer for drivers.
