I did not say this, but it may be that due to incompatibilities with the
ATA HW/SW intercface if the drive and the Solaris kernel there may be
problems. Just test.....
As a Note for people who are interested in DVD+ drives:
All DVD+R/RW drives are made by Ricoh and have an ATA implementation bug.
Starting with Solaris 9 12/02, Solaris will not work anymore with these drives.
Ricoh knows about the problem but is not interested to fix it.
