cdrecord error burning iso image


Okay, I read instructions here in the forum and consequently wrote a shell script to create data CDs from the command line:

#! /bin/bash
mkisofs -r -o burn.iso /home/mooreted/burn/
cdrecord dev=/dev/scd0 speed=40 -eject burn.iso

The ISO is created but cdrecord gives me this error:

scsidev: '/dev/scd0'
devname: '/dev/scd0'
scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
Warning: Open by 'devname' is unintentional and not supported.
Linux sg driver version: 3.5.27
Using libscg version 'schily-0.7'
cdrecord: Invalid argument. Cannot get SCSI I/O buffer.

I have reread the instructions and looked all over the forums and my code looks okay. What did I do wrong?

I am using kernel 2.6.3-7.mdk

I changed the dev parameter to dev=0,0,0 and it worked! I don't know why I was told to use dev=/dev/scd0. Oh well.

In the 2.6 tree you don't need scsi emulation. Try dev=/dev/hdX

Oh, cool. I guess I don't need the append statement in Lilo then and my fstab could probably be changed as well.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

Oh, I see. A rating system. So, what do you get out of an affero rating? It looks like I would have to sign up for something to start rating posts. I will if it will help someone.
