I have video driver working, sound as well, even my infrared port works...


My problems are the Intel PRO/Wireless 4965AGN Network Connection wich has no driver yet, but it's being taken care off here http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/ (i have internet via ethernet port for now)


Lightscribe Super Multi DVD Writer (+/-R +/-RW) with Double Layer doen't work, wich is rather strange because it works fine in the installation procedure, but when i boot to OSX it just works no more, can't mount it at all.


Any help would be apreciated in the optical drive issue.

And thanks to all the comunity.
