Hi all, time for my first post...
I have a Sony CRX230E which was working fine under Win2K (so I'm not concerned that it's physically faulty). I had to move it into my Linux box as a short-term replacement for a failed drive.
The OS recognised the drive correctly and all works fine until I actually write to it. I get lead-in times of over 5 minutes - which I'm pretty sure is way too long!
Any suggestions or advice to get this working? I'm putting in a DVD writer in a couple of weeks so it's not crucial, but I'd really like to know why the performance is so poor.
OS: Suse 10.0 fully patched kernel.
Device is IDE Master on IDE1 (no slave device)
Using Memorex CD-R 52x, which I believe are reasonable quality media?
Nero for Linux 184.108.40.206
All help gratefully received,
