I meant Joerg has problems with linux in general (and I tend to agree
with him as regards to linux scsi infrastructure), not any specific
distributions (mine or yours).

Not as far as I can see. I tried the IDE version of the LG DVD writer

kernel 2.4
When I have another system with USB DVD writer I'll make another test
and post the results to the list .
