    When I first tried the drive I added it as a second optical reader and my Mac said not supported. I later put it back but pulled the cd reader. It now works as it should. Thanks for your help. I'll research two devices at a later time.

I would like to connect an Apple Studio Display 17" to my Macintosh Server G4. Can it be done? What adaptor is needed if any?

Apple Studio Displays connect via DVI cables. The PowerMac G4 (all versions) support both VGA & DVI. You shouldn't need any adaptors. It should just plug into the back.

I have a G4 PowerMac Sawtooth which was given to me, it has an OWC 1 GHZ. PowerPC CPU processor board with the gold colored heatsink and single fan. It has 1GB of PC-133 RAM and the latest firmware...

It is possible you have a power supply failure. My MDD was doing the same thing unless I reset the PMU. There is a tutorial here on checking the PS - D275729F-09DA-4FBB-96B3-BEEEB2C04619.html It for a MDD, but I would think it would be useful for your situation.
Do you have an Intuos tablet connected? The drivers for that might be causing the problem and should be updated to the newest driver available

I Have a MAC OSX 101.5 can I install leopard

Here are the minimum specs your Mac will need to run Leopard, from Apple:
  • Intel, G5, or 867MHz+ G4 processor
  • 512 megs of RAM (though if you only have 512 megs of RAM you should get some more. Trust me, I'm a pundit)
  • DVD drive (Leopard is shipping on a DVD, and your Mac needs to read it to be able to install it)
  • 9GB of free disk space (though I bet if you customize the install and leave out all those printer drivers and extra languages you can save lots of space)
Go to your apple menu, and look on the "about this mac" If your machine doesn't have the mhz's you are out of luck. If you don't have a DVD drive, you are not going to be able to install either...

Imac g5 ejecting dvd/cd media

most likely, your dvd burner lens is burnt out(they make the darn things out of plastic!). Just happened on mine. you have to either replace the drive or get an external. There are do it yourself instructions on Apple's website for replacing the drive.

Not all drives are compatible...must be slot loading and I read that it has to be set to master so you can potentially boot from CD's in this drive.
