FWIW, I'm using an old (2002 vintage) 7720U with a new dual-layer  
Pioneer DVD writer, and it works a treat on both Linux and MacOS 9  
and X. I've not given it a spin on the Ultra 30 yet.

When I find my bits box, I'm going to try it on a CFIDE adaptor, a  
Zip and LS120 drive just to see if they work, with the full  
expectation that they will. A solid-state SCSI disk would be cute.
