Question cdrecord knows my cd-writer - K3B not...


Hi there!

i've a problem with my external cd-writer (liteon16x10x40x writer in a
freecom classic-series case) and k3b (v.07-161 -> the release which
comes with SuSE8.1).
When I burn a cd on the command line (with cdrecord) it makes no
difficulties. But when I want to install k3b, it didn't recognize my cd-
writer automaticly. So I press the Button "Add Device" and enter
"/dev/pcd0". But the only answer is: "Sorry, could not find an
additional device at /dev/pcd0"...

Do you have an idea?

Here are some additional facts:

to load the modules for the cd-writer in the kernel, I use this commands:
modprobe paride
modprobe parport
modprobe parport_pc
modprobe friq
modprobe pcd
modprobe pg


the output of "cdrecord -scanbus":

linux:/home/benjamin # cdrecord -scanbus

and at last the burning dialog from cdrecord (here in dummy-mode):

It looks odd to me:

I don't think that's your device. Try /dev/scd0

Cool

Hi!

You're right, it seems to be logical but K3B doesn't think so ;-)
It appears the same error-message as (like, then... what's right? ;-)) before: "Sorry, could not find an additional device at /dev/scd0"

thanks!

Can you post us the relevant sections from your dmesg? To do this, as root type:
dmesg | grep scsi

This *should* give you the relevant sections. If not, go ahead and post the whole thing and we'll sort through what we need.

Also, you might wanna see if you can find some documentation on k3B, it might need something like:
0,0,0
rather than a device.

Cool
