Hi all,

Partial success report here. I formatted and wrote about 60MB to a CD
(quite slow -- lots of:

Jun 14 20:28:18 muttley kernel: Device 0b:00 not ready: cmd=0, sector=101320, nr_sectors=32
)

After syncing, unmounting and remounting the CD was unreadable. It's possibly
a dodgy CD-RW, though. Anyhow, I reformatted and left it to copy again over
night but came back to a hung machine and unreadable CD-RW.

I'm running kernel 2.4.5, patched for low-latency (may be a problem?),
with packet writing patch 0.0.2l-as.
Hardware dual PIII, AIC7xxx, Yamaha 4416 SCSI.

I'll go and find some new CD-RWs, but apart from the final hurdle it's
looking good here! More testing later...

Ben
