Re: [vox-tech] CD writer suggestions?

I have a TDK VeloCD which I just bought at Fry's on Rebate so it was real 
cheap in the end ($39).  Haven't figured out how to update the firmware.  
Other then that it works well.

I also have Plextor 12/10/32 which didn't mount discs until after I updated 
the firmware.  It works well too.

Just get a Writer with burn protection, check to see if there are utilities 
for linux to update the firmware.

To ease your install pain easiest way to set it up is put ide-scsi=/dev/hdx 
for your boot options.  You'll need the (SCSI GENERIC) sg.o (SCSI) scsi.o and 
ide-scsi.o modules installed.

Then cdrecord --scanbus
