Cannot find DVD writer or get CD-writer to spin audio disk
I am a somewhat silver-haired newbie and would greatly appreciate a helping hand. I have installed Suse 9.1 from DVD on my dual-boot PC which has DVD(NEC3520) and CD(Asus5232AX) writers on IDE secondary/master and secondary/slave respectively. (Jumpers set CS). Only the DVD has it's audio output connected. All seems fine under Win98SE.
I have two immediate problems under Linux:
1 Inserting an audio CD (for test purposes) in the CD writer loads KsCD but it shows 'No Disk'. I can however access a data CD in this drive.
2 I cannot see the DVD, only the CD appears in the CDROM list in YAst2. In the DMA list of devices the two disk drives and the CD drive are detected.
Watching the boot details I note entries
'/dev/hdd on /media/cdrecorder ........' and
'/dev/hdc on /media/dvdrecorder ....... ' followed by something like ..
'/dev/hdd setting dma off 'etc
but probably significantly no similar entry for /dev/hdc.
Checking the properties of icons in /dev shows the following
cdrecorder points to hdd
cdrom points to hdc
dvd points to hdc
dvdrecorder points to hdc
The unaltered fstab file contents are -
/dev/hdb8 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/hda1 /windows/C vfat users,gid=users,umask=0002,
/dev/hda5 /windows/D vfat users,gid=users,umask=0002,
/dev/hda6 /windows/E vfat users,gid=users,umask=0002,
/dev/hda7 /windows/F vfat users,gid=users,umask=0002,
/dev/hdb5 /windows/G vfat users,gid=users,umask=0002,
/dev/hdb6 /windows/H vfat users,gid=users,umask=0002,
/dev/hdb7 swap swap pri=42 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,
/dev/dvdrecorder /media/dvdrecorder subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy subfs fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,
No advice can be spelt out too clearly to me, feel free to state the obvious!
