Here comes what I was able to find over the Internet.

Burning issue with another Plextor drive and openSUSE 11.2:

Very old kernel bug related to burning:

There are some other posts reporting issues with Plextor drives under
Linux, however most of them are unanswered.

I'm thinking of recompiling the kernel to "tweak" it for my case. can you
suggest any options that i can try to enable/disale? I can only thing about
legacy scsi support.

Have a nice weekend
