This is for the sake of any 6200S users who may be searching for this
tidbit of information to get DAE working.

This reply is late, but maybe it's of help for others with a simular
problem: I tried various versions of cdparanoia, linux kernels, even
replaced the SG driver. Nothing helped. Finally I bit the bullet, created
a boot diskette (this is a linux only box) and upgraded the firmware of
the drive. And that did it.
So: people with Ricoh 6200S writer, that came with firmware rev 2.03 may
have to upgrade to firmware rev 2.40 if they encounter DAE problems.
BTW: the symptoms of the system "freezing" for a few seconds were caused
by a SCSI bus reset, something I found out only when it happened to me
when I was not using X and the actual messages ended up on the console...
Keep up the good work :-)
