<DIV><STRONG><FONT size=2>I'm having a problem with a&nbsp;I/O magic burner. I 
will state that I'll try it with Linux before I give up.</FONT></STRONG></DIV>
<DIV><STRONG><FONT size=2>Ok here it is I have set the drive to slave although 
I/O magic states that they recommend to use it as master.</FONT></STRONG></DIV>
<DIV><STRONG><FONT size=2>I'm getting nothing but buffer underruns and 
questionable copied cdr's. Does anyone have any input on this before

<DIV><STRONG><FONT size=2>I assume the same problems should occur 
</FONT></STRONG><STRONG><FONT size=2>in Linux since its a hardware issue and not

<DIV><STRONG><FONT size=2>If this can't be worked out I'll just remove it and 
save up the money to buy a named brand unit. ie: HP.</FONT></STRONG></DIV>
