Hey. Just a hypothetical question now: I've got an external CD burner that uses a firewire. Now, lets say i take it to a regular PC, with a CD Burner already on it. I save all the songs i want to my hard drive. Would it be possible then to burn two cds at once if i had the internal burner from the PC and my external hooked up? Just curious.

Burning CDs is usually very sensitive to interference. That is why it is sugested that all other programs be shut down and that the burn is all that is being done. If you try to burn the same data to 2 different burnners at the same time, you may run into a situation where the hard drive cannot supply enough data and you get underrun errors. If you attempt to do a burn, try it with both writers at very low speed like 4X or so.

I would think it will work as long as you use software that will specifically record to multiple burners. Feurio says that SCSI is preferred for more than two burners, but that you can often get by with two IDE burners as long as they are on separate channels. One IDE and a Firewire should be a little better than two IDEs as far as CPU use, and they are separate data paths.
