My SCSI RRD40 has had problems reading some CD-Rs and (IIRC)
absolutely will not read CD-RWs at all. I'm not that surprised
as I expect that RRD40s were long out of production well before
CD-Rs became popular.
I've used to have some issues with an RRD42 and CD-RWs too.
So there are certainly drives that are marginal with CD-Rs.
