i did a successful burn today! woohoo!

cdrecord: fifo was 0 times empty and 13164 times full, min fill was 92%.

the solution was to move the hard drive with the data on it to the
internal scsi bus on my 7500. the burner (a ricoh) is still on the

so... the 53c94 driver currently doesn't allow enough access to regular
hard drives when you're using the generic device. i don't know how this
relates to disconnect/reconnect or the scheduler. 

it isn't going to be an option for everybody to move their source drives
to another bus but at least we know burning works in some configurations.
