Apple has updated its Mac OS 9 Authoring Support Plug-in to version 1.1.2.

This plug-in is required when burning CDs from iTunes and DiscBurner in Mac OS 9.1. The previous update, version 1.1 must be installed before 1.2 is installed.

This update adds compatibility for: the Que! Fire 16x-10x-40x drives, which use the Teac or Plextor drive mechanism; the VST 8x Bus Powered FireWire CD-RW drives, which use the Teac drive mechanism; and the Logitec 12x-10x-32x LCW-P1210BF.

CD-R drive manufacturers often use several different mechanisms in the same CD-R product. The above drive models and mechanisms are the only new combinations tested by Apple.

Apple's software updates are now only available through the Knowledge Base section of its site. A list of recently released updates is maintained at the bottom of the Web page explaining Apple's decision.
