Reliable CD recording is something of a black art. 8X recording on my
P III-450 with Adaptec 2940U generally only succeeds under low system
loads (although to be fair my source and destination drives are on the
same card). Amiga SCSI cards may be too slow to keep up (I know I had
problems under APUS with both a A4091 and GVP Series II). The SCSI
drivers are probably also buggy...
