Well, I used to have a SCSI burner, Ricoh MP6200S and it was
incredible at the time -- I was very excited about it being
able to record CD-RW discs. But then, after two years (I
think), it died.
About half an year ago, I bought a new burner, a HP CD-Writer
Plus 9100 (a CD-RW IDE drive).
It works like a champ with Linux (be warned that you'll have
to compile SCSI emulation for IDE devices, but this is very
simple) and the drive is *very* fast (it's a 8-speed writer
for CD-R media an 4-speed writer for CD-RW).
Just so you are aware, HP has at least one newer/faster model
of this drive out now, the 9300 series -- so you might like to
buy it instead (it's exactly like my drive, with the exception
that it writes CD-R media with 10-speed).
But now I'd like to ask you some questions about your Athlon
system: which chipset and motherboard are you using? Are you
using UDMA modes for your harddisks without any problems? Any
extra information that you might have is welcome, as I'm
planning on buying an Athlon for me next month (I'm saving
money right now).
