this is an interesting task; I'll follow the recommendations from the fellow users in here, as I am not at all satisfied with my Pioneer 303 SCSI DVD-ROM drive. It makes a hell of a "sizzeling" noise while operating... this might affect *my* drive only, but one never knows... in addtion, I am not able to play audio cd's except with Chris Wohlgemuth's WarpCD. (Tried Warp CDPlayer, PM123 CD, SB/2 CD player and so on). Might be caused by some constellation of SCSI / DMD / whatsoever drivers, but I would check for some different model!
BTW: Using MCP.
