SOURCE: MacBook and Mad Dog Multimedia Compatible?

I have been using my Mad Dog External CD/DVD burner for serveral years now on both Mac & PC. However, I do have intermittant issues when the computer recognizes the Mad Dog but my software does not (Toast). There is no driver for Mac as far as I know. I called Mad Dog one time and they rudely suggested that Mac does not need a driver and that I should know that. No help at all!!! I will try the suggestion for PCs to turn everything off, turn on the Mad Dog, then boot my computer and see if that works. Does anyone else use a Mac and have more solutions?????

SOURCE: Mad Dog USB DVD-RW not recognized

I have had a similar problem to this one in that when I turn the device on if my computer is already turned on, it does not show up in the list of available storage devices.

I discovered the cause of the problem.

Whenever I would try to use the DVD-RW/DVD-ROM, I also had another external storage device connected, being my mp3 player. I disconnected the mp3 player, left the DVD drive turned on, rebooted my system, and when I went into "My Computer", it showed the DVD drive connected, with the letter I had assigned it ("D", since the CD-ROM and CD-RW drives were assigned the letters "H" and "I", respectively. Don't ask how. I have no fargin' idea.). I decided to test something out. I put in a DVD, watched a few minutes of it, took it out, then turned the device off. I reconnected my mp3 player, then turned the DVD drive back on. I opened up "My Computer", and after it took a minute to locate all drives, it found the mp3 player, but not the DVD drive. I unplugged the mp3, rebooted the system, and the DVD showed back up.

In short, if you have another external storage device connected to your system, like an mp3 player, external hard drive, memory card/stick reader, digital camera, etc., disconnect that device first, then turn on the external DVD drive. Double-click on "My Computer" (if you are using Windows), and it should show up. If not, reboot your system and then open up "My Computer". It should be listed then.

SOURCE: Do I need software to get my comp to recognize a

Hello

Depending on which version of windows you are using, you might need to install the drivers for the device.

I know XP and older versions have a mush smaller internal driver database than windows vista or windows 7.

You don't necessarily need to install software to operate the device, just need the driver installed, then your computer will recognize the device.

Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem

Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.




hope this helps

Need manual for mad dog multimedia external wiring harnness


Unfortunately, Mad Dog Multimedia went out of business years ago, and no longer provide support services or documentation for any of their products.

Unless you can find another one of these external drive cases on a sale rack somewhere, or being sold used by an individual, your chances of finding the original manual are extremely slim.

MacBook and Mad Dog Multimedia Compatible?


According to http://www.mdmm.com/spec.php?productid=160 (check the requirements tab, note that it doesn't work on firefox due to bad coding), it only supports Windows 2000 and Windows XP (even though it doesn't say so, it's likely it's also supported by Windows 98 and Vista) but unless someone made drivers for mac os x, it doesn't look like it'll work.
