DVD/Burner and CD-ROM Issues
 
hi i downloaded NeroLINUX because i want to burn some FreeBSD ISO Files to a CD to use it. i tried on windows xp but the download would taken 6 hours. For some reason linux downloads faster so i want something that burns and for nero it worked but it said somthing about my DMA Accesselator (sorry cant spell it lol) and that my DVD/Burner was not installed or something

This is the error message i get when i click Nero.

NeroLINUX has detected that some of your IDE devices are using the "ide-cdrom" driver. This driver is not useable with CD/DVD recording software such as NeroLINUX.Please use the 'ide-scsi' if you want to use the devices below.
/dev/hdc (CD-ROM Drive/G6D)
/dev/hdd (DVD-RW IDE1008)

I think this should help you alot to point me out in what i need to do to get these devices working

Please use k3b instead of NeroLinux; http://www.k3b.org/

I don't know how to install that,
K3B will still give me the same problem..

These programs seem like a bit of overkill to simply burn an ISO image. Did you try:

Erase a CD-RW:
Code:

# cdrecord -blank=fast dev=/dev/cdrom
Burn a CD or CD-RW with an ISO image:
Code:

# cdrecord dev=/dev/cdrom filename.iso
Note: Your device (dev= in the above command lines) may be different than illustrated.

I dont think my IDE Drivers are setup correctly..as you can see..

When i did that command line of yours it didnt work..all it said was

Quote:

cdrecord: No write mod specified
cdrecord: Asuming -tao mode.
cdrecord: Future versions of cdrecord may have different drive dependent defaults.
cdrecord: Continuing in 5 seconds..
cdrecord: No CD/DVD-Recorder device specified
See what i mean? I guess Linux doesnt regonize my DVD/Burner Driver yet? I don't know..

I didn't look closely at your first post. It appears that your CD drive is only a reader and your DVD drive is the burner.

cdrecord does not support DVD's. For Debian, there's a package named "DVD+rw-tools" that supports DVD's. Also, cdrecord-ProDVD supports DVD's. There are also extensions to add DVD support to basic cdrecord (a.k.a. "cdrtools" these days). http://crashrecovery.org/oss-dvd.html

Sorry I missed the part about you only having a DVD burner, not a CD burner. Tools are available, it's just that basic cdrecord as available on (all?) Linux distros does not work with DVD's.

I do have a CD Burner its dual format. it supports both CD and DVD Burning..

Replace '/dev/cdrom' with '/dev/hdd'

'/dev/cdrom' is just a link to the real dev. Which will usally be to 'hdc'.

In most system the following will apply to cd/dvd drives,
cdrom will link to the first cd drive
cdrom0 will link to the second cd drive

You may also have
dvd which will link to the first dvd drive
dvd0 which will link to the second dvd drive

I would expcet to find these in your system
/dev/cdrom linked to /dev/hdc
/dev/cdrom0 linked to /dev/hdd
/dev/dvd linked to /dev/hdd

Doh! I confused myself. cdrecord supports DVD burners, as long as you're only using them to burn CD's, not DVD's. Where I got the idea you were trying to burn a DVD ... I'll never know. You certainly didn't say that!

Listen to snowtigger. Sounds like he (she?) is doing better in the non-Doh! department than me. Like I said earlier, your dev= parameter may be different than my illustration. I only have a single optical drive in my system - a DVD burner, and it's found on /dev/cdrom.

Thus look.
/dev/hdc (CD-ROM Drive/G6D)
/dev/hdd (DVD-RW IDE1008)
hdc as my CD-ROM Reader
and HDD as my DVD/CD Burner Driver

Im going to try what snow tiger said
Thanks again

Now. i have other problems ahh linux your full of surprises NeroLinux acually trys to help you setup it up but.. I tried what snow tiger said and it didnt work i still got the same error.. im wondering if i need to add my DVD/CD Burner to the system.. like mount it using fstab because it keeps saying im using 'ide-cdrom' and i need to use 'ide-scsi' driver...how DO i use that..

How do i add a driver? Thats actually what im trying to say because everything says either it cant find it or i need to use 'ide-scsi'

snowtigger 01-23-2006 04:36 PM

Try this, all as root

Do 'lsmod'
Is there an entry called 'ide-scsi' (i'm thinking that there is not)

If it is not there do 'modprobe ide-scsi'

Hopefully this will load the module without errors.

If it does load do 'lsmod' again and you should see the module in the list it gives you.

Nero should behave itself now it burn a disk for you.
