Vdogvictor,

First you will want to determine where the system thinks your cd-burner is, as I recall the command here is:

cdrecord –scanbus

this should provide a list of bus address with descriptions of the devices on them, attempt to locate your burner on this list.

Once identified you will want to tyoe the command

cdrecord –v –dev=x,x,x image.iso

-v will put this in verbouse mode,
Replace x,x,x with the numbers that match up to your cd-burner
And substitute image.iso with the name of the .iso that you wish to create a disk from.

I hope this helps,

Yes, the cdrecord –scanbus will detect IDE burners, my primary workstation is a Dell C840 which is dual boot between XP and Fedora Core1. I frequently use cdrecord (my ide burner is at 0,0,0).

Happy burning,

Yes, and yes.

NOTE: That was a good question, if you want to burn cds, you must have scsi emulation running on the ide cdburner device. Don't worry about this unless you can't see you burner using cdrecord -scanbus as mentioned by kvedaa. If you can't see your burner with cdrecord -scanbus then add the line:

append="hdd=ide-scsi" <-where /dev/hdd is the ide cdburner

to /etc/lilo.conf and run lilo.

when you reboot cdrecord -scanbus should see your burner.

edit: sorry instapost
