I was testing it with music rather than data. It seems the data works OK.
Maybe for the music there is a setting somewhere I've missed. It ran OK doing
the dummy runs, but I'd gotten about a dozen coasters from live runs. At
least I can back up my data now. But somewhere along the line I've buggered
up my sound. No big deal, except I want to eventually get my vinyl collection

I need the 2.4 kernel for the latest Win4lin version (3.05 - which is a
_vast_ improvement BTW).
If I can't get the music recording to work, I will probably still consider
getting a SCSI, this ol' Ricoh doesn't support DAO anyway.
