You can't go wrong with an MMC-Compatible drive, you can then use
CDRecord, XCDRoast, and even my unfinished as yet CDMirror program :)

I know the Yamaha CDR400 is compatible, as is the new Plextor
PlexWriter. Don't know of others. How a look at the CDRecord page for
tons of other non-mmc drives supported.

Oh, and a quick plug: :)
