I bought a refurbished Iomega USB CD-R/RW DVD drive and it supports
USB 2.0. This computer, did not. So, I bought a USB 2.0 capable PCI
card and it works like a champ under both k3b and XCDRoast.
With the built-in USB 1.1 ports I had to force the write speed to 4x or
I'd get a coaster. Now it does 48x effortlessly.
