Recently I also bought a Yamaha CDRW6416S (now connected to a PCI
NCR53c810a SCSI controller) which turned out to work just fine. No
problems at all! (In fact I had a problem with bad/corroded contacts of
the controller to the PCI bus, but that's another story...)
I have used X-CD-Roast 0.96e and cdrdao 1.09 (I didn't use the
stand-alone cdrecord) on my Debian 2.1 (slink) system to burn CD-R(W)s
with 6x speed (4x for CD-RWs) and had not a single failure!
So it's for sure that your writer _is_ supported, but unfortunately I
have no idea how to solve your (SCSI ?) problems...
BTW: Can you use the writer to mount and read a CD?
