Brand shouldn't matter at all with Linux compatibility. All CD/DVD
writers are usually ATAPI or SCSI devices. Kernel 2.6.x has much better
support for ATAPI devices than 2.4.x (which required SCSI emulation for
devices to work). SCSI support has always been quite good.
Although another poster warned you away from Liteon drives I've heard
good things about them. Personally I've used Richo, Sony, Creative,
Asus, and A-Open drives in Linux with little trouble. One brand I would
suggest you avoid is Diamond Data (Mitsubishi). I had lots of problems
with one of their drives a few years ago. In Windows and Linux. Just
Of the CD-Writing apps I've used K3B seems to be the best from an ease
of use perspective.
