Wondering if anyone has ever used DVD-RAM drives with a Sparc (in
I can see a few ways to go here...
modern multifunction drive that supports DVD-RAM with Acard SCSI<->IDE
same drive in an external firewire enclosure and a firewire card
same drive in an external USB2 enclosure and a firewire card supported
Since this is for a U60, I'm leaning towards #1... get a nice Pioneer
112, crossflash to Bufalo firmware (DVR-111L) for DVD-RAM support, and
couple with Acard SCSI<->IDE bridge and use internally in the U60s CD bay.
I hear that some OSes don't like the SCSI<->IDE bridge for burning
about command length vs true SCSI drives). I don't have any reports on
drive functionality with a bridge under Solaris though.
So... anyone have any comments/suggestions that has done this ?
