Hooked up an external sony dvd cd burner but it won't work.

Could you provide the exact model of the burner? Also, what exactly does the Apple System Profiler say about the drive? For example, in my MacBook I have a internal combo drive. In System Profiler, it shows up under Hardware->Disc burning. It then says the following info about the drive:

MATSHITA CD-RW CW-8221:

Firmware Revision: GA0H
Interconnect: ATAPI
Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipped/Supported)
Cache: 2048 KB
Reads DVD: Yes
CD-Write: -R, -RW
Burn Underrun Protection CD: Yes
Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw
Media: No

Yours should say something similar.

Yes, the jump to OS X is a big one, especially if you've never even used OS 9. I hope you like OS X's added features and stability, and catch on quickly to the new interface ;).
