DVD/CD brand recommendations
In a few days I'm going to be getting new CD-RW and DVD-RW drives, and of course I want to make sure that they're compatible with linux and relatively reliable first. The choices I'm looking at (or more accurately, the models that my father has suggested):
I have little experience with cd/dvd burning, and have never even attempted it under linux, but I don't want any nasty surprises when I'm ready to try it. I just want to know which company is the Nvidia of the cd world.
My current drive is slightly annoying in that sometimes it does not begin reading a live cd fast enough, and the BIOS proceeds to the MBR. Other times, it has a fatal I/O error when trying to load parts of the cd.
In case it's relevant, I'm running an AMD Athlon XP cpu on an MSI board, with 256MB RAM.
Thanks for your input.
