speaking of this...sorry to steal the thread (well not too sorry)...
my main workstation (now FC-3, previously FC-1) has always failed
writing CD's at the time of fixating (regardless of speed) - it hangs
and never finishes. It has always done that - regardless of which brand
of media. I haven't bothered with it since I have the identical drive in
my Windows XP machine and it works - and another one in my Linux server
which works too.
I just kind of assumed that there is something wrong with the drive -
any suggestions or info to direct me to?
