Regarding the Adaptec software, I would be surprised if it could NOT create
a CD from an image. After all, there are lots of people ripping CDs for
One thing that gives me the pip however is the number of companies that make
a CD for you, and forget to use Rockridge extensions so all the files end up
as Windoze-only. Given that the same company has been known to produce
sensible CDs and nonsensible CDs from the same Windoze CD burner, I'd say
that it's a simple matter of checking the right boxes on the GUI.
I have been considering getting a CD burner for work, and want to run it on
a *-ix box (either Linux/x86 or Solaris/Sparc) just to prevent unauthorised
access and so I can write proper filesystems onto them. Has anyone had any
experience with writing CDs from either *ix?
In particular, is there any point using IDE vs SCSI (slow writes anyway)
given I can use either on different machines?
Using a GUI based writer vs command line (some GUI writes are expensive)?
How easy was it to mount and configure the device?
Was CD-RW successful? What sort of failure rates should I be expecting from
So far, I have looked at hardware from Ricoh and Sony.
