DVD drive

The PC is equipped with a Matshita DVD drive:

ata2.00: ATAPI: MATSHITA DVD-RAM SW830, 1.01, max UDMA/100
ata2.00: configured for UDMA/100
scsi 1:0:0:0: CD-ROM            MATSHITA DVD-RAM SW830    1.01 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 48x/48x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray

which is fully supported under Linux.

Harddisk

The 1 TB harddisk is a Western Digital WD10EZEX-21M2NA0

ata1.00: ATA-9: WDC WD10EZEX-21M2NA0, 01.01A01, max UDMA/133
