      have you considered an external drive?
      i have a 5150 bought 6/04. i ordered the poineer dvr-08 with external
      enclosure (i think from ebay) connecting with firewire. FC3
      auto-recongizes it and i've had no problems. USB 2 i assume would not
      make a difference, though i prefer firewire for highspeed devices. most
      of the dvd auhoring i go ahead and boot XP to do, because the software
      is easier, but i've burnt/read dvd's under linux with this drive.
      ymmv hope this helps.
