I tried the latest version (1.06) from the JMicron web site as indicated by adusak, and with my PATA DVD drive (PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-115D), the inserted DVD looks like an external drive. I believe the its plist causes this.
Version 1.0 JMicron driver worked properly in this regard, except causing kernel panics with the memory issue.
Then I tried the latest slashack version (0.5) with 64 bit addressing, and it displays DVD the same way. [did not test for the memory issue]
The memory issue is the one i solved. I'll try and solve the other issue. If u could test if kext work it would be great. (run rember to test all memory and try and open files from IDE disks)
Can you attach a plist from v1.0?
Unfortunately, this is not just a display issue, it confuses the finder as to whether it can burn blank disks. Ejection is also goofed up.
Slashack, if your recompile is based on the latest version 1.06 from JMicron's web site, you would have inadvertently carried these issues over. Based on my limited understanding, you may need to revisit the plist based on the original 1.0 version, instead of the 1.06 version, or at least use the version 1.0 as a base.
Thanks for all of your help. Really appreciated.
