questions for you.......
on Dec 29, 2002 at 3:14:18 pm

Do you know if the Pioneer DVR-A05 is an external drive? I want to use it w/ my Apple G4 laptop. If it is an external drive, does it need an additional power supply, or does it get its power from the fire-wire connection?

Also, do you know if Apples I-DVD software will work w/ the Pioneer DVR-A05? I know that Apple uses Pioneer for their internal "superdrives" but the guy at the Apple store said that the I-DVD software will only work w/ the internal "superdrive" not an external drive. It doesn't sound right to me and I thought you "videoguys" would know.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Cheers.

you can make it external via firewire using the ADS firewire drive kit. It sells for $100 and will make any ide device external firewire. as far as mac software, check w/ the manufacturer of the software and see if the a05 is listed.

you can read more about the drive kit here http://www.videoguys.com/ADS_drivekit.htm

Thanks Jon,

Is the a05 an external drive out of the box? Can you buy it as an external firewire drive not needing the ADS kit? That's my question.
