No, we only use ide-scsi for CD-Rs because it's needed to actually do CD
recording due to silliness in how cdrecord and the SCSI midlayer interact. 
Otherwise, ide-cd is just fine.
Comment 2 Marek Kassur 2003-01-01 14:46:27 EST
But some programs require this functionality, rpcmgr is one of them for example.

GToaster needs for the cd-rom reader to be ide-scsi also for it to be able to
copy from cd to cd. I think this would be a good idea.
