CDDesigner has problems with writing TAO on a Yamaha CDW6416, use DAO instead.
Plextor 12/20 (and maybe other newer Plextor drives) are reading Audio CDs with the Toshiba driver; Plextor (and Toshiba) seem to have the best audio error corrections.
CDDesigner does (seem to) work with all actual SCSI-devices of Phillips and Yamaha. With Phillips devices you should use the SCSICDWriterHP60xx, with Yamaha devices you need to select SCSICDWriterYamaha200_400 as type. In the latter case you may also need to add an entry to your NetInfo database to make the 4- and 6-speed writing modes available to CDDesigner:
- Start NetInfoManager.app (located in /NextAdmin)
- Double click on /cdwriters/<Name of your recorder>
- Choose writing_speeds
- Select "New Value" from the "Folder" menu
- Enter 4 (resp. 6)
- Save the configuration.
I do not recommend to use NetInfoManager if you are not familiar with NetInfo. If something went wrong, your machine may stop booting. Changes in NetInfo are on your own risk.
CDDesigner V1.4.2 is available for free. As there exist many nice and cheap recording applications for Mac OS, we won't complete or release the port to Mac OS X Server, but we are thinking of releasing CDDesigner under GPL.
Openstep and Rockridge conform CDs may cause Mac OS X Server to extend the filenames by 2 characters. You can still copy the files to your harddisk, but double-clicking a file won't start it until it is renamed.
