[muglo] Re: Toast 5 and La Cie USB Burner

ever considered upgrading your OS to 9.1? May make a difference with 
the USB cards.

I'm running OS 9.1 with a usb card on my 7300/200 and I'm using Card 
Assistant 1.4.1, but I don;t know if that's the latest version. You 
might check to see if there's a more recent version from Apple.

Anyway, I can;t be of much help with the cd burner.... I have an 
external Yamaha SCSI CDRW. I find the SCSI interface is much more 
reliable than USB or IDE.
