I use the other one externally with the Link on a cdrw but I also tried it once with a dual layer dvd-rw and it also worked fine. Never tried burning to the dvd/cd rw though.

mikro wrote:hmm, at least I solved one strange thing, i.e. that incompatibility with IDE drives.
it seems this yamaha coverter swap byte order! That means if I partition IDE drive in Falcon's IDE interface with "swap bytes" option and then plug it into scsi->ide converter, i see that parititions.
question is, how to deal with this? i mean, i can't use byte-swapped partitions under normal atari IDE setup, can i?
another thing I observed -- under MegaSTE, with Link96, HD Driver tells me there's nothing more than 1 GB space on whole disk (with 2 GB CF card).
previous posts mentioned this, too, but it was given as a cause of incomplete scsi implementation in mega ste's original adapter.

Maybe even via an old ICD adapter, but I'm not too certain about that.
Maybe that's due to the difference between TOS 2.06 Mega/STe and TOS 2.06 ST.
Any insight? I guess I can use 2gb cards with this, it is just very strange that 512mb and 1gb cards appear to be incompatible.
