Burner Compatibility

I'm running CD Architect 4.0, about to upgrade to 4.0g, on a Windows, Pentium II, Windows 98-4.1, with 192 RAM. The machine is dedicated to audio processing and is used to burn PMCD for tooling. As CD Architect won't run in Sound Forge 5.0, which we have, I pull down Architect from Sound Forge 4.5. Still using our old Panasonic CW-7502 burner, which still works well. BUT, it has many hours on it now, and I want to upgrade the burner. I want to stay external with a SCSI connect. Questions: 1) does anyone know if the Plextor PlexWriter 40/12/40TSe external Ultra SCSI drive/burner will work with this setup? 2) Will the old SCSI connect work with the Ultra SCSI new Interface? 3) If this particular burner won't work with CD Architect 4.0g, can someone recommend a currently available external SCSI bruner which will work? What's listed on the Sony site for 4.0 is not useful, because I can't find one of these listed burners currently available. Sound quality is important; we run Apogee converters direct stream into the computer for mastering from 24 track analog tape. Thank you for any information your could provide. Serge

You should have no problem running any type of scsi writer, using "MMC-compatible SCSI " from the drive-type list.

Sound quality has zilch to do with what your drive connection type is. More to do with the drive itself, and the media.
