Advice: Concerning SCSI & CD-R's
Posted on 1998-06-14
Actually I have a couple of questions:
1) If I have a SCSI card installed and it has a internal connector and a external connector - And I am currently using the internal one for my internal Jaz drive and I have a scanner connected to the external one - IF I WAS TO PURCHASE ANOTHER INTERNAL DEVICE, HOW WOULD I BE ABLE TO HOOK IT TO THIS EXISTING CARD? In other words, Is it possible to have another internal device in the "chain"?
2) I am looking to buy a CD-R drive. I am trying to determine if I should be looking at a SCSI or IDE drive. I have used up all IRQ's already, So I am thinking I will need a SCSI drive. But then because of my first question, I am not sure whether I should be looking at a internal or external drive. Which would be my best choice under these circumstances?
3) I quess I could also consider putting the new drive in place of my existing CD drive but I would prefer to keep it. So I am asking you to give me advise on whether the SCSI drive would be better in any way than the IDE ?
4) Which make of drive is the best for the money? Recordable or re-recordable???
I know this may seem silly (or somewhat ignorant) to you but I really do not have anyone else to go to for this type of advise. I would prefer advise from someone who has a lot of experience in this area - Or leave question open for numerous responses. I will try to arrange points for all that respond.
