SIL3112 Optical Drive Support on PCI Macs

This table serves as a reference for determining which SATA optical drives work with the SIL3112 PCI SATA card, including host OS and machine information.


  • Use the numeric/decimal form of the OS version only, unless otherwise required. (e.g. 7.6.1, 9.2.2, 10.3.9, OS X Server 1.2)
  • Use the model ID when denoting host machine type (e.g. PowerMac3,3)
  • If multiple OS versions are tested on the same platform (and achieve the same results) they may share the same line. Differing results should be on new lines.
  • Reads/writes supported modes means the drive operates in the way the manufacturer intended (e.g. a DVD-R drive won't burn a -DL disc, this is expected and should not be noted). It should be answered with a yes unless a mode is found to not work. -RW and -RAM media are not being tested unless noted otherwise.
