SCSI/CD-ROM Writer question

Posted on 1998-05-14

I'm planning to buy a CD-ROM Writer.  I'm interested in knowing if I'll need a second SCSI card, or if I can
just use it with the one I have.  I know the number of devices will work, but I've heard (I can't remember where)
that the CD-ROM Writer must be on a separate channel from the hard drive, meaning I need another
SCSI card.  I have an Adaptec 2940UW, and a Seagate Barracuda HDD, as well as a UMAX Scanner
on the card now.   Is it true I'll need another card, or can I just use the one I have.
Also, any suggestions on a brand of CD-ROM Writer (non-rewriteable)?  
Yamaha, HP, Ricoh?  

Thanks,

Bill

No additional SCSI card is required, just make sure that the computer recognizes it before use. ie. add new hardware. And for the CD-Rom writer, I have a Hp which was the cheapest and works fine for me!It also reads pretty fast as well!!!!!!
