I have 10.6.1 running on a GA-EP45-UD3L. Is this kext supposed to allow you to use IDE dvdroms?
I installed the kext through kext utility on a fresh install of 10.6.1 and am unable to see my IDE dvdrom drive. Is there something I am doing incorrectly?
Thanks in advance!
Your motherboard has a JMicron 368 for pata (ide) and ich10 for sata. this kexts is for sata ports to work.
For ide port, you must download JMicron 368 kext. Place the kext to /Extra/Extensions folder.
For sata, you must download this kext.when done,Get inside the kext , in /Content/Plugin Folder and copy the AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext to your /Extra/Extensions folder as well. don't touch the original IOATAFAMILY.kext in /System/Library/Extensions.
Make an mkext of your Extra folder :
kextcache -m /Extra/Extensions.mkext /Extra/Extrensions
you can now delete you /Extra/Extensions folder when the mkext is created. make a backup before.
