And what about Lacie or Plextor (or is that only PC?)

Yeah, that's a good idea Barnabas, just a bit anxious, scsi works (with $$$ Granite Cables) never used firewire-
Sorry, that's a lie - a friend brought his rubber LaCie PocketDrive HD & that went flawlessly

It's gonna be firewire i guess

Thanks guys

My CDR on my B/W G3 went bad too, so I just got the Glyph WildFire CDR that connects via Firewire. It's not working for me yet, but Glyph and I are ironing out the bugs. It works great on my G4, but my PT is on the G3. It uses a Plextor drive.

I went with the Firewire drive to keep the SCSI bus short. I think if I had OS 9 on the G3 instead of 8.6 it might work already.

If it's compatable, try the Glyph firewire drive called "Wildfire" It's a plextor drive in a Glyph box, but Glyph has great tech support and customer service. Mine's an 8X, but maybe they're making them faster now. 8X has been good enough for me though.

Anyone uses a firewire cdrw burner with a B/W G3 working well?
Or should i stick to SCSI ?

My Glyph Wildfire is a 16x10x40 CDRW. It has the Plextor PX-W1610tA drive. As I said, it works great on my G4, but not on the B/W G3 running OS 8.6. I did have to upgrade the firewire extensions, but it still doesn't work. Glyph says it will work on any G3 or G4. Glyph and I are exchanging e-mails trying to get it to work.

I've never used the firewire ports on the G3. Is there some way to test them?
