I have a frustrating problem. I have put a Sony CDROM model CDU415 in a 
LaCie external enclosure to connect to either a Q840av or a Q 950. The 
CDROM works, spins, and all that and I have it set to ID 4.

It mounts sometimes and sometimes it won't. I startup and PRAM it and 
the unit mounts with a CDROM in it. If I then restart and try to put a 
CD in, the CD will not mount on the DT. I believe this is a good CD 
drive and pretty fast but I wish I could get it to work. I feel I am 
close but I am missing something, problem one little small thing, 
either software or something else.

I have OS 8.1 on the 840 and 7.6.1 on the 950. Yes I have it terminated 
using a termination pin next to the ID pin Thats what the diagram says 
anyway. Calls it the "Term" pin. I also have a pin on the Allow/Prevent 
as well as the "2" pin. The CDROM now shows up as ID 4.

Can anyone give me any ideas how to make this thing work? Missing 
software? Perhaps a third party doodad? Mounter software, something?
