CD Burner and Disc-at-once

I have a HP IDE CD-RW drive (wow thats a lot of abbreviations :)... I forget the exact model number, but it's an old RW drive... 2x2x6 I believe is the speed. I need to make some backup cd's using the disc-at-once method, and my drive does not support it. Is that an IDE problem, or the problem of this particular drive? I was told that you need a SCSI CD-RW drive to do disc-at-once, is this true? Or would just an updated, newer IDE CD-RW do the trick?

Obviously, I'd rather not have to buy a SCSI card to do this stuff... plus SCSI devices are always much more expensive.

I don't think you need a scsi drive. My mitsumi 4802te is an ide drive and supports disk at once. I have used the disc at once a couple of times without problems. If you're going to buy a drive, be sure to buy one with a large cache. My mitsumi has 2 meg.

It is definetly not IDE/SCSI problem, my Philips CDD3610 suports it.

Why do you need DAO?

Marts?

Making a 'mix cd' for my girlfriend, and without DAO it gives that 2 second 'lag' between tracks, which screws up some songs from a live cd that was recorded DAO (ya know, without the pauses)
