after upgrade to 10.5.8 from panther on G4 PPC Mac DVD player spits out CD all types.

Sysytem Profiler shows all details of drive:

PIONEER DVD-RW  DVR-109:

 

  Firmware Revision:          A912

  Interconnect:          ATAPI

  Burn Support:          Yes (Apple Shipping Drive)

  Cache:          2000 KB

  CD-Write:          -R, -RW

  DVD-Write:          -R, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW

  Media:          Insert media and refresh to show available burn speeds

 

 

is there a firmware or CDC/DVD update for SuperDrive or what?

A terminal command? Something?

I know it's an old mac, I own newer ones as well.

I've seen this issue on other threads here, but so far no solution.

Please advise

Thanks in Advance
