I have this internal SH-222BB DVD Burner connected to G4 Power PC Mac thru SATA to IDE adapter rear mounted.  It came with original PC firmware SB00, it will plays movies disk fine, but will NOT burn anything, no CD, DVD, iTune crash if try to burn, etc.  Can anyone please tell me if it is possible to install a firmware that will burn disk using a Mac?  I try most current PatchBurn, still not working either.  Here the profile on this burner:
