I not mean that your suggestion is bad. It can be usful for users they have
only a burner.
But: You never should use a burner for reading. I think most people who
owns a burner, also have a CD-R drive. And if you have such CD-R drive you
don't need to use it with ide-scsi and so you can it use for playing audio
Really: A CD burner have a very heavy mechanics and more wear then a
CD-Rom drive. If you like to use your burner for some years, you should
olny burn with it.
