Mac OS 9.1, iTunes and CVGS
10:31 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story
IMG Reader Michael Masella and Mac troubleshooting site MacFixit are both reporting that Apple's just-released operating system update Mac OS 9.1 and/or installing iTunes disables the ability of Connectix Virtual Game Station to read Playstation CDs.
Specifically, the new version of the Apple CD/DVD driver installed by iTunes or the 9.1 update, presumably modified to support that utilities' ability to burn music CDs, is the root of the problem. This problem is solved by installing the older version of the Apple CD/DVD driver from your Mac OS 9 CD-ROM; however it is not known as of yet if this disables iTunes' ability to burn CDs, as Apple systems with built-in CD-RW drives are still quite rare.
Connectix Virtual Game Station
As soon as we can discover more detailed information on the possible negative effects of downgrading your CD/DVD driver, we'll pass them along; in the meantime this is a quick fix for getting CVGS up and running again. We've contacted Connectix about a possible update to their Playstation emulator, as well.
