View Full Version : internal CDRW in beige G3

06-04-2001, 10:57 PM
I am considering installation of a Yamaha 8824s internal cdrw on the internal scsi chain of a beige G3 266 minitower. Is this reasonable or is there some other set-up that would be a better choice? Do you have any reccommendations?

I personally prefer Plextor mechanisms, but they are probably much more expensive than Yamaha.

You can read about Plextors on the main site (http://www.macgurus.com/shoppingcart/showrampage.cgi?mgscsicdromdrives.html).

Hi Duke,

I have a yamaha CD-RW that's less than a year old, and I have yet to be able to boot from this sucker. I've tried everything.... ID 03, removing the OEM CD-ROM, etc etc, nothin doin.

Louie has a Yamaha, and swears by his. I've not used a Plextor, but an endorsement from Gurus for Plextor has considerable merit.

My Yamaha does seem to be a bit slow on the spin-up.

Yep, mine's an older 6416S; works like a champ.
