hi.

it seems that a lot of people with this problem are not using ide-scsi.
but i am using the 2.6.1 kernel with ide-scsi emulation for my cd writer which support writing at 16x speed.
but the process of writing is very slow, so just about 4-8x

with the 2.4-XX kernel the same problem

i cant use the system efficiently while writing.

dma for harddisk is enabled.
should there be anything enabled in the kernel what i forgot?

i tested on a debian testing system on the same ibook i could write at full 16x speed.

thanks.
