    Good CD-R or RW and CD-ROM setup

    I need advice on a fast CD-R or CD-RW and CD-ROM setup that is fast and can write at least at 4x, CD to CD. Do i need SCSI drives to achieve this or can I get away with IDE? Please post any suggestions. Thanks.

    The HP 8100 series and Sony Spressa are good ide drives. I personally like the Yamaha CRW4416S. They record quickly and with a good SCSI CD-ROM as the source are great for recording music. SCSI doesn't eat CPU clock cycles the way ide drives do so they are less prone to buffer under runs. It also has a 2 mb buffer. A little more than the HP but I think it is worth it in the long run.
