Will i have any problems to have in a Falcon an IDE CD-ROM and a SCSI
CD-RW, or opposite a SCSI CD-ROM and IDE CD-RW?
Does this combination work good?

If the drives are supported there will be no problems. I think that
there was only one driver (by Andoyne or similar) that supports
In general it does not matter wether the CD-ROM is attached to SCSI or
IDE. I am not sure wether IDE CD-Writers are supported (in their writing
part...). You should have a look at your Writing-Software manuals for

I suppose there are no problems with any combinations if each part works
Thanks for your answers.

So you want to copy CDs on the fly and don't want buffer underruns?
Best way to archieve this is to keep both CD-Devices in the SCSI-Chain, as
IDE-Devices put more stress to the processor. I guess it is better to have
the source device as IDE if you can't have two SCSI devices.
-> DATA CDs:
no problem, if recording speed stays below reading speed of CDR
-> check max reasonable recording speed for your HW-Setup with "test"
writes (with CD-writer laser switched off)
-> Audio CDs:
here you need a good CDDA-extractor (or a good correction mechanism in
your source device). Extract without breaks (->keep whole track in
RAM, then put it to HD), otherwise "tck" and similar noise sounds
might get into your track at those moments.
I have no experience with on the fly CD copies on my Falcon - I use to
buffer the data on my HD.
I recently read somewhere that some CD-ROM players allow reading audio-CD data
digitally through the SCSI interface. I couldn't find an answer in the FAQ,
so maybe someone out here knows
- which CD-ROM players allow this (and also allow Photo-CD reading, and
is dual -- maybe even quadruple -- speed).
- the drive should be external (and SCSI off course): or is there an easy way
to install an internal, or even IDE, CD-ROM to a Falcon (can you
convert IDE to SCSI?)
- which driver I need for this on my Falcon 4/65
- how much I should expect to pay for the drive...
I realize, quite a lot of questions. If you have answers to some of them, it
would help me lot.
