You probably won't find such a list.

The "manufacturers" (branders?) will use whatever drive mechanism for which
they can get a good deal at the time they need to make the deal.

Computer makers do the same thing with hard drives and some other parts.

I found the list of acceptable  CD-RW mechanisms that will work with
Retrospect Express on the Dantz website.

Now is there a list somewhere that tells you  what mechanisms are being
used in various company's models.

When I visit the sites they say they manufactured their product but my
research tells me that in most cases the inside mechanisms came from
somewhere else.

The name and number of that mechanism would sure be a help.  Hopefully
there is a master list somewhere in this big wide world.

Thanks

Bruce
