As it was a cheapo burner, I of course assumed it was just that. But I decided to go DSL despite that
DSL toram recognized the drive just fine. But the current version of cdrecord in DSL is not able to burn DVD-R(W)'s.
So, I compiled the newest ver. And whatdoyouknow, instant working! The drive had no trouble doing anything I commanded it to. Burned the minidvd just fine, with top quality. And it could easily read it too.
I only had one bricked disc, the one I tried to burn from M$. Not bad.
So, as a piece of advice to all, don't give up until you've tried Linux on it
PS: I sent the pack I compiled to Robert. It updates cdrecord, mkisofs, iso* to the newest versions, and adds cdda2wav (a audio cd ripper). This pack adds full DVD capabilites, and Blu-ray burning too!
