Sure can. However, if you have a Mac (or System version) that won’t work with the Apple 5.3.1 drivers, you’ll probably have to use a third-party driver (such as Intech’s SpeedTools or FWB CD-ROM Toolkit) with it. There’s a page on MacMad (dead as of May ’02) that has lots of helpful CD-ROM information that you might want to check out too. If you’re using System 7.5 or higher, you can use the 5.3.1 driver, available from the JMUG Driver Museum, or you can use the ResExcellence hack on v5.4.2 of the driver (extractable from the Mac OS 8.1 Update). (The ResExcellence hack also works on higher versions.
