Just to let you know, I did get a reply back and it does appear as if the drive was usable and writable under Linux. I didn't ask what kernel version he was running, but it was most likely the latest version (2.6.9). We'll see what his reply is.

yaneurabeya,

You mean like this:-
Code:
ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
hdc: SONY DVD RW DW-D22A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdd: SONY DVD RW DW-D22A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

I can copy videos and use packet writing on UDF filesystem.
So far, I have only tested +RW media.
