    I have an Akai DPS 12i I bought many years ago.
    In a move the SCSI drive I used to burn CD's was lost.
    I don't remember the brand or model.
    All I know is that not all drives will work with my recorder.
    What SCSI is combatible and really good?
    Thanks.

    I've got the DPS16 and use a Plextor 12/10/32S with mine which works flawlessly. Before that I had a Ricoh MP7060S which worked great until it died. The Plextor stuff is really the best though.

    I still have the DPS16 SCSI checklist if you want any other suggestions. Also, there's a DPS forum here;

    I don't see any mention of the DPS12 but you might be able to get some info if you do some digging.

    OK, this is the DPS16 SCSI device list dated 9/27/00!

    Ricoh MP7060S
    Yamaha CRW824S
    Plextor PX-W8220T
    Plextor PX-W124Tse
    Sanyo CDR-BP3
    Quantum Fireball CX10
    Quantum Fireball LB10000A
    Western Digital Caviar WD102AA
    Quantum LB20400A
    Quantum GTLALM15A011
    IBM Deskstar DTLA-305020
    Maxtor 52049H3

    This is only the stuff they had tried that tested successfully. I think in general all of the Plextor, Ricoh, Maxtor and Yamaha drives should be safe (Sony too most likely).
