Default CD-R s

Hi guys,

I'm ready to burn some stuff from a G4 450 MP / Digi 001 / PTLE set up and have never used SCSI. Could a relatively Mac-savvy chap install the card etc. himself?

Also, I've checked the old threads on CD-Rs and was wondering if anyone would care to post a few more up to date suggestions concerning models, compatibility, etc.

Thanks for any help ,

I use a yamaha IDE burner I put in a Pyro Firewire case. Works great have had no problems with Toast 4.1 or Jam 2.6 with it.

I'd take a good look at firewire, since the interface is already built in to the computer. It saves having to buy a SCSI card and is very convenient to use.

SCSI is very easy if you just have one device. You will need a PCI based SCSI card. Simple to install, just find an open slot and put it in. Attach the SCSI cable (make sure you have the right connections) to the CDR and restart. SCSI is not hot-swapable so make sure all connections are made with the computer off. I personally like the Yamaha CDRs. I have not made a single coaster using my 6416. Cant say the same about my Panasonic CW-7502. I also use the Adaptec 29160 SCSI card without incident. (G4-450)
