I've one of those bondi-blue USB Que! drives and been looking for a way to use it again ever since OS X.
Note: When this bit of software is opened and the installer begins to run, a window comes up announcing that this driver is for OS X versions 10.1.1, 10.1.2, and 10.1.3 .
After trying the driver with every single version of OS X, I found it does indeed work with 10.1.1 through 10.1.5 only. This is with iTunes; I don't believe there is a version of Toast that works with 10.1.x . If you want to try this driver with any version of OS X other then version 1, you will probably be foiled.
The Que! drive remains balky and slow, but the arrangement is ok for a secondary system. If you are using this as a primary burning system, forget it, its too slow and buggy, and it makes you use an early sub-jaguar version of OS X. Finally, I do agree its best to plug the CD writer directly into the computer for "best" performance. This was a bugger to figure out, but the experience was enlightening. Better get a new burner before firewire 400 becomes obsolete, too!

Does somebody out there have the drivers for the Macintosh blue bondi QPS QUE! CDRW 4x4x8x. There is no technical support for this product. Can you belive it?

This driver is a total piece of excrement. I downloaded it and opened it (on OS X.2.2 i think) and it said something like "this drive does not meet the requirements of the sortware" What Requirements?
Anyway about a week later I tried a couple more times and then it worked. No idea why. It didn't have any effect though, the eject button still doesn't do anything. I just found some Jaguar updater by searching these old comments but I doubt it will work. I guess the main problem with the drive was the slow USB connection though - I could only burn reliably at 2x in Classic.

Downloaded the driver, installed it, rebooted... plugged in my drive, inserted a CD and ... nothing...
Did't work one bit.

:-(
Now I have a driver installed that doesn't do anything. How can I deinstall it?

Good luck. I am also looking for a driver that will make my 4.7 Gig QPS firewire DVD-RAM work with Tiger. QPS reminds me of the old Gamewizard voodoo cards, you know: the ones that were made right before the manafacturer left Dodge city...

I have one of these, and here is my advise:

Don't count on Que!, their website says that they are working with Apple, and has since Mac OS X 10.2, at least.

If you still have Toast 5 that came with the drive, update that to the Mac OS X version, or just buy the newest version of Toast.

X-CD-Roast works with it in panther, although the software itself is sporadic, so far I can't get it to work in Tiger, but it's worth a try.

I finally got around to reconnecting my Que! CD burner after installing 10.2.8. I had to reinstall the software because it had been trashed when a tech was working on my trusty old Mac G3 and replaced 10.1 with 10.2.8. I inserted the disk, started installation, got a garbled onscreen window, stopped installation, restarted the Mac with OS9, installed the software, did a search for the folder I wanted to back up. It appeared in the OS 10 list, so I dragged it to the OS 9 desktop (still with me?), started the Toast software, saved the folder to a CD, restarted in OS 10 to be sure I could read the CD, et voila! Seemed fine, although a lot of trouble.

Or you could do as I did... take apart that damn usb external, rip out the actual drive and replace your internal reader with the one from the external usb.

The drive inside the QPS USB case is a Matsumi CR-4804TE in my case. Natively supported under Panther...

While it still spits out a coaster every other burn, it eventually gets the job done.

My next task, update the firmware on it. There is a new firmware available but it can only be done from a PC. I tried it via Virtual PC with small hopes. Looks like VPC gives Windows/Dos access to the CD through some sort of intermediate imaging process, so in other words... do worky.

Looks like I'll have to plop it into a PC, do the fw upgrade and then put it back in my mac.

It should be advised that I have no idea how the drive will function after doing the fw update.

Cheers

I donated the drive to a family member who is using it as an internal drive in their PC. I didn't do the firmware upgrade before this, sorry.

i just down loaded the driver, but nothing seems to have changed. i am running 10.2.8(jaguar) on a power mac G4. when i was using os9 i bought the 4x4x8 Que usb drive. after i figured out not to burn at 4x it worked pretty well with toast 4.1.2 that came with it. when i upgraded to osX 10.1 i had to reboot in 9 to burn anything now in 10.2.8 it's just a paper weight, classic won't even start up if it's plugged in to the G4. so i installed an internal pioneer super drive in place of the cd-rom drive that came with the G4. is there a way to use the Que drive at all? even for reading disks to copy on the super drive? anything you could tell me would be a great help thanks

from the QPS website: "Cypress, which is the company that writes the drivers and made the chipset used in the back panel for these drives will not be making any more drivers for this chipset, so unfortunately the drive will not be supported on OS 10.3 and later.
There are no drivers available for download."

Well, that is the last time i will buy any products from QPS. These drives are not outdated and it is only reasonable to expect your company to continue supporting them. I have no doubt that QPS will cease to exist as a company in the near future.

So, if I have a QPS Que! USB Drive hooked up to my iMac, and updated to OS X Panther I cannot burn a CD using the Que!Drive even if I purchase Toast 6?

QPS took forever to update their drivers when OSX was first introduced, and they are doing it again with Panther...if they even have any plans to do so. Since I've upgraded to Panther, I've had to reboot into OS 9 in order to do any disc burning at all. Mind you, these burns are usually reliable, it's still a pain in the rump, and I know some of the newer Macs don't have booting into OS 9 as an option.

I'm in OSX now and cannot even get my computer to recognize my Que! USB CDRW. What program will recognize this external device? (Either OSX or OS9). I need to make it work!!!

1.4 does not work with Panther on SE iBook; crased iTunes and DiskBurner. It's either Classic or another burner.

There could still be a 3rd party drive though.

One can only hope.
