USB DVD-RW for Blade 100 - Sun Solaris

Does anyone know if it is possible to use a DVD-RW/+RW on the USB port for a SunBlade 100? I want it to be external to be able to use it with a iMac (no SCSI adapter). I plan to acquire a Sony DRX510UL. thanks Dan...

    In theory, you may use USB with Solaris 9.....

    ..... but I don't knw whether USB-2 is supported. If not, you will get
    only buffer underruns.

    On Solaris 8 SPARC, the OP can install patch 109896-17, which adds USB
    2.0 support. Of cause he needs some USB 2.0 ports in the machine (=
    USB 2.0 PCI card), I think the onboard ports in the Blade100 are
    USB 1.1.

    The onboard are 1.0!

    Does anyone know of a working driver and USB/Firewire board for Ultra's?

    Arent you overstating things a bit, Joerg?
    Firewire does "work" with solaris. it's just a very limited sense of
    "work". only very specific firewire devices are supported, where in this
    case "supported" is the same as "works".
