Quick Question About DVD

Post by Sean Middleditc » Sun, 15 Aug 1999 04:00:00

Are there any DVD drives that are completely uncompatible with Linux?  I see
people worried about trying to use Linux on their brand new Windows based
computers that have no CD drive, just a DVD drive.  My DVD drive works fine
as far as reading CDs goes.  I haven't tested reading DVD-ROMs, and I know I
don't have the software for DVD movies.  But reading CDs works fine.

1. DVD SCSI burner, I want DVD+RW, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM

I've googled until I'm blue (would that be bluegled?) and I can't
find a DVD burner that has all of what I want.  These seem to be
what people like for Linux:


NEC ND1100A DVD+RW/+R, DVD-R, CD-R/-RW (replaces above Ricoh)

HP DVD300i (DVD+RW/+R, CD-R/-RW)
(watch the line wrap)


All of the above units are EIDE.  Is there a SCSI DVD burner that
works with Linux?  My reason for wanting this is the wonderful
burning throughput I get with my SCSI CD burner.  I *NEVER* have
buffer underruns no matter how much else my system is doing.
I can even backup to my SCSI tape at the same time without
problems.  I'm nervous that an IDE burner will force me into
buffer underrun land.
