based on a previous thread, is there any compelling reason to
use SCSI emulation for an ATAPI CD-RW any more, given that
cdrecord can handle such devices directly?
From what I understand, cdrecord code for handling ide devices is
alpha quality. Also many gui based cd writing software still expects scsi
emulation or needs to be configured to use IDE devices. In fact, the only cd
writing program that recognized IDE CDRW for me was X-CD-Roast - which
somehow depends on dev=ATAPI option for cdrecord, which only works with 2.4
