Issues
CD-R devices are real time devices that require continuous data throughput to achieve success in recording to a blank disc. Most recorders include 512K or 1M RAM buffers to prevent buffer underrun. Other things that enhance CD-R reliability are bus mastering host adapters, high speed AV disk drives without thermal recalibration, and software that can premaster, and test systems prior to recording.

Host Adapters Page
Host Adapters Page

For PC based systems you will prefer a SCSI host adapter that supports bus mastering, typically Adaptec 2940 or better .
For some hostadapter/recorder combinations, particularily ULTRAWIDE you have to set the transfer rate down to 10 MB / SEC for SCSI ID # of the recorder to prevent buffer overflow.
