hello friends, pankaj here, i am new to this forum
i want a step by step guide of how to install dvd+rw on fedore core 3. i have tried much of the things but i am not able to do that. so plz any body from the forum can help me for that.
Plz tell me the procedure frm the scratch
my dvd-writer drive is SONY DVD RW DRU-710A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
and it is connected to /dev/hda.
Do i need to do the scsi emulation in Fedora core 3.
its very urgent
thanks in advance.
pankajgadhari: FC3 will normally detect and make an attempt to configure new hardware on the first boot.
What happened when you booted? As a note, it is possible that you might need to “approve” the addition of the hardware configuration, but usually it goes automatically. I have not tried to configure a dvd writer, but dvd players and CD-RWs are picked up without any problems.
Did you get any functionality, even if it was only as a CD player? It would be helpful to see how it was configured in /etc/fstab. If my question is not clear, just list everything that is in /etc/fstab.
When you open the “computer” icon on the desktop, is the dvd writer present and what was it called?
One hardware note: If you got no functionality, be sure that your master/slave jumpers are set correctly and that /dev/hda and /dev/hdb are not both set to master or both set to slave.
thanks for ur reply friend,
bt i want to know that whether in fedora, scsi emulation is required for dvd-writer. I have done the scsi emulation, but i am able to write image using growisofs by giving command:
"growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -R -J /var"
it shows that files are written on DVD, but when i try to mount it, it is not showing any activity nor mounting the DVD.
now i am confused that whether DVD is written or not
my fstab file is like this :
