Pionees DVD-RW -DVR -109 compatible?


I have checked www.linuxcompatible.org , but PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-109 was not listed.
Is there other places I can check?

I have a (rebadged) pioneer dvr, and it works perfectly. It's not a 109, but it's a very similar model. If you are holding off on the install of linux because you can't find this particular model on a compatibility list, I would just go ahead and try it. The chance of an IDE burner not working under linux is absolutely tiny.

Thank you.
Actually I was planning on buying a burner, and this was looks lika a good one, I just did'nt want to use wine or something to get it working. Is it just a mather of software, so if i ex. installed nero on linux, it would to able to do the same as it can i widows?

Couldn't tell you about Nero under linux, but I would guess that it's not a good idea. There are plenty of linux-based burners. I use command line tools, but I hear k3b is quite easy to use. Have a look on freshmeat.net if you want to find out more about what's out there - perhaps one has the goal of imitating nero's interface.

nero has been ported to linux (so you don't need to install it under wine,something that seems really hard since nero interacts with hw) but not with all the features as in . has. And also the installation is kinda hard

k3b i think till now is the best burning software for linux

and for the compatibility, as CroMagnon said, yes the possibility that it would not be recognized is tiny

tiny as this ---> . (comparing it with your monitor)
