Question Cannot "burn" disc with Suse 9.3


I have Suse 9.3 and it will let me read data from a cd off of my cd-rw drive, however, it will not let me erase or write a disc using it.

So.... I was figuring that maybe I have to have it identified on the SCSI bus instead of IDE...but I don't know what has to be done to get the IDE to release the CD-RW drive so that SCSI will pick it up....

I think the kernel is set up in 9.3 to be able to use SCSI

Can someone help me on this?




Thanks

Before using "it", try following "this".
Menu=>System=>More Programs=>K3bSetup
After setup start using as regular user only!

I apologize...

Using K3b to try and write to a 'blank' CD-RW disc.

I have tried to do this as 'root'and as regular user, but same thing happens, K3b gets to the 'burn' status and does not show any progress happening. Basically, it hangs there.

When I look here:

$ cdrecord -scanbus

My CD-RW device is not listed....

Confusing, because I can read data and music from the CD-RW drive otherwise..

Thanks for your help...

cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.

K3b uses 'cdrecord' to write discs....I think. But is it looking for SCSI devices?

Thanks for looking at this...

Download an .iso like a boot disk or some small download and try as root;
Code:
cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc /path/to/.iso
(path to .iso being the name of the file like /home/yourname/boot.iso)
you can type /home/yourname/bo then press tab to save typing plus makes sure it is right
