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?

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

Please post how the PC firmware works going back to Panther.

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.

Could someone please tell me where to get the update or send it to me? I am really lost without my CD burner, but I am enjoying OSX!

I just fixed the link to the driver download. Try it again and it should work.

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."

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.
