cdrecord problem - Cannot open '/dev/pg*'
My Ricoh DVD/CDR combo has been happily burning off discs for over 2 years from my box, currently RH8. Last weekend I got to the last of a batch of fedora isos though and got the following -
cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=0,0 yarrow-i386-disc3.iso
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 J?rg Schilling
TOC Type: 1 = CD-ROM
scsibus: 0 target: 0 lun: 0
cdrecord: No such device. Cannot open '/dev/pg0'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
and cdrecord -scanbus returns the same message.
Seems to read CDs fine, is there any other way of testing whether it is the hardware that has failed or not?
