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.

Well, no.

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.

why is scsi emulation slow? because it is emulation.... emulation is normally slower than things like api layer (wine) or native/normal things (normal /dev/hdx cdrom reading)

the 2.6 kernels don't need that slow scsi emulation anymore for cdburning; k3b and cdrecord work fine with it
