I've had this burner for over 3 years "BUSLINK"
installed into my G4/533 via FIREWIRE

Now, it doesnt come up, that's strange

the only thing I changed or rather added to my set-up was a monitor switcher box for my TWO MACs, that should'nt cause any harm --- right

just trying to narrow down why it doesnt come up.
I go into TOAST 5.1 Lite, and usually I see
DVD DRIVE
EXTERNAL CD DRIVE

but the external doesnt come up, hmm

any ideas

Give this a try, It worked when none of my firewire drives could be found on the desktop.
Unplug the computer from the wall for 5 minutes. Then restart.
Sounds like Voo doo, but it worked for me.

So it turns out, all I had to do was turn the MAC on first and then turn on the external burner.

At a time, I used to have the burner on all the time. So that cleared up my problem.

I started to worry, in all my 6 years I've never ran into a problem, I knew I didnt touch any setting or anything, so whewwwwwww, now I know
and knowing's half the battle ---- G.I. JOEEEEEE

sorry, had a flash back
