(me again) I have now successfully connected a LG IDE DVD multiwriter to an O2 via an ACARD 7720 SCSIDE adaptor.
To be more precise, it´s a
which is praised by the manufacturer to read and write all formats including DVD-RAM.
The UDF file format is built-in since IRIX 6.5.20 AFAIK
(though formatting via GUI still does not work - one must try the formatRMedia [/device] command instead).
Tested so far is reading of data from CD and DVD - none of the frequent SCSI errors I got with my Indigo2
I have some reason to estimate that writing CD and DVD will also work via cdrecord.prodvd.
But what makes it worth posting here is the fact that the blue plastic cover neatly fits the LG drive,
only the position of the eject button is slightly different.
This gap can be bridged with a piece of metal ar plastic glued in place (the way I did it, better ideas welcome).
Audio output, volume control and LEDs vanish behind the blue cover, though.
The inner, black plastic part can also be mounted, if one doesn´t mind to stymy it using a sharp knife and also use some glue with it.
Find this Interesting? Have a look at the similarities between the original CDROM and the DVD multiwrite drive and see for yourself:
