I got my SCSI DVD-RW drive by sticking an Acard SCSIDE converter on.  
Although somebody here said that they only work with old drives, it  
works just fine on a new Pioneer drive (A DVR-110, I think). OSX and  
Linux are quite happy with it, even burning disks; I've yet to try it  
on my U30. It even worked on AmigaOS.

I've got a SCSI CD-ROM and another CD-RW, but since they didn't move  
on eBay even at 99p NR, they're destined for the bin.
