Calling all Mac boffins!!

OK, so in my previous post I’ve prattled on about this case mod that I perpetrated on my G4. Well, I’m still having some problems finding a software base method for opening the drive (Mac users will understand.. PC users feel free to nod along).

Anyway I’ve decided to cash in on the wealth of talent and ‘willingness to help’ out there in the greater mac using community by holding a competition to see if anyone of the hugely skilled mac programmers out there can whip me up a solution.. So if you’re a mac programmer, or just interested in reading more of this sort of crap, check out:

And if you’re not… well, it’s about time you started learning!

    B&W G3 mod – same gripe
    I modded A B&W G3 running OS10.2.3 to include DVD-R, CDRW & zip250 internal drives, and have also tried all the combos you list at I also set both drives to CS, since the new MDD’s come this way, but no difference. I hope someone feels drawn to your competion!

  • Me too!
    There seems to be a few people interested in creating a solution – With a bit of luck and support (I’m still looking for ways to ‘sweeten’ the deal) there should be a nice piece of software come out of the other end of this thing!

  • i like macdonalds

    does that help?

  • Yeah – it does….
    now I know what to poison!
