User reported list of supported drives with cdrecord on all UNIX versions

Supported drives with cdrecord-2.0:

Cdrecord should work with:

All SCSI-3/mmc compliant drives
All ATAPI/mmc compliant drvies

It seems that all drives that have been initially released in 1999 or later are MMC compliant.

If a recent drive does not work with cdrecord, you most likely found a firmware bug.
