Help ! cannot config Toshiba 4X CD-ROM

Post by Patsy » Thu, 21 Sep 1995 04:00:00

Dear Friends,

Can anyone kindly teach me how to install a Toshiba 4.4 X CD-ROM drive
on Linux.

Thank you very much.


1. Toshiba 4x v. Mitsumi 4x CD-ROM

Here are the statistics I have compiled:

                Toshiba                         Mitsumi
Buffer          256k                            128k + 128k virtual
DTR Mode 1      600 kb/sec                      600 kb/sec
DTR Mode 2      684 kb/sec                      684 kb/sec
 Random         150 ms                          
 4 Stroke                                       400 ms
 3 Stroke                                       230 ms
 MTBF                                           15,000

I can get either for $218.  Now, which one should I get?  Does the buffer
make that much difference?  Problems or compatibility problems?  Will
Linux have a problem with either?  Which is ACTUALLY faster?

I need to get a CD-ROM ASAP, and have about $200 to spend... and Quad
speed... either IDE or SCSI.  All information would be appreciated.
