Understood! I just changed from Masterlinks to Sound Devices recorders 
(722 or 744T) as it downloads to computer by firewire - for partly that 
reason. A 4x burner is far too slow for my workflow. With the 744 I can 
transfer a two hour concert to Mac and burn two copies in less time 
than the Masterlink could burn one CD of one half of a concert. Or you 
can take out the CF card and keep recording and burn simultaneously...

You might also consider this brand new device:

as it looks as though Compact Flash and microdrives are a very 
efficient transfer mechanism...
