Linux supports a SCSI CD/DVD drive connected to one of the supported SCSI controller cards (see Appendix B for more information). The only restriction is that the block size (for data transfers) of the SCSI CD/DVD drive should be 512 or 2,048 bytes, which covers all CD/DVD drives on the market.
Some CD/DVD drives include a controller with a modified interface that's not fully SCSI-compatible. These interfaces are essentially proprietary, and you cannot use such CD-ROM drives with the SCSI driver.
SCSI CD/DVD drives are available from many vendors, such as HP, Plextor, Sanyo, Teac, and Toshiba.
