cdrecord problems

Post by X11 »

I have recently upgraded to kernel 2.6.9, ide-scsi is turned on (however it is now susposed to support writing to IDE).

[root@exeleven Linux]# cdrecord speed=8 dev=0,0 dsl-0.8.0.iso
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01a19 (i686-redhat-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2003 J�rg Schilling
scsidev: '0,0'
scsibus: 0 target: 0 lun: 0
cdrecord: No such device or address. Cannot open '/dev/pg0'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.

scanbus gives me the same error, with /dev/pg0

Have you tried using the IDE device? That has worked for me for a while now. ide-scsi is the old way. I use "cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc" without a problem. You can't have ide-scsi loaded to use that format though. You have ide-scsi hard compiled in or built as a module (the usual way)? Do you have the boot options set? You should have something like this for a kernel boot param:

hdc=ide-scsi

But again, if you want to use dev=/dev/hdc then you don't want ide-scsi compiled in or loaded as a module and kernel boot param.

Okay, its working using the dev=/dev/hdc method, which is pretty good.

I think I might have turned off ide-scsi when I built 2.6.9 and forgotten, and was meaning to use the IDE method (which I wasnt sure about using).

But now its all cool.
