External DVD/CD
#17
I think going through a powered hub will probably cure that.  I haven't tried my DVD burner on here, but I have a few spinning rust hard drives in USB adapters and the one I tried didn't work.  I normally use them with Raspberry Pis and they work with or without a hub so I didn't think about it.

Isn't there a way to disable the current limit on USB through a software switch?  An option in the kernel command line I think, but that probably depends on the kernel.

cdrecord yes, that's what I'm used to.  Just grabbed a copy but I wanted to be sure it does bluray (it does).  It's an inactive project now.

I've burned close to 1000 (just buy another box of 100) CDs and DVDs.  When I went to read some stuff back years later I found they're far from permanent.  These were Sonys kept in tyvek sleeves.  So burning at least 2 copies and using 10% redundancy par files is my current approach.  Par files work a little
like a RAID, they're quite successful on mangled binaries posted over usenet.
