When is scsi emulation so slow???
Ok, I was forced to adopt SCSI emulation to get CD and DVD burning working with k3b and after going through and resetting my /dev/dvd and /dev/cdrom links I thought I had it made.
Now the DVD ripping that I was so faithful in working-on is dead slow. Actually, DVD playback is slow now also. This is terrible. It's like playing the whack-a-mole game at Chuck-E-Cheese. I fix one thing and it screws something else up.
