In addition to working with burncd, you can also get this drive to work with cdrtools if you want by making it appear to be a SCSI device. You will need a 4.7-RELEASE or newer system (check the Handbook for upgrading instructions) and you will need to recompile your kernel with atleast: device ata device atapicd device atapicam device scbus device pass device cd Some IDE CD-R/RW devices will only work this way... those that do not implement the standards that SS adheres strictly to in the burncd code. However, this drive, according to numerous posts, will work fine, and does implement those standards (which is rather impressive) The advantage to using it with ATAPICAM rather than burncd is that you will also be able to use the other tools from the cdrtools package, cdrecord, cdda2wav, etc, and the numerous front ends that have been designed for them.
