ide CDRW problems under ide-scsi


I have searched google / usenet / LinuxQuestions etc for days and while
I have seen this problem (or ones similar) nothing seems to resolve it...

I cannot get my CDRW to work properly via ide-scsi... When I started I was
looking at it with cdrecord -scanbus, but I have found
that the issue and errors happen with a simple mount so I will use
that as my example... Obviously, if all I wanted to do was read it
I would not be doing the ide-scsi, but is is the better example

First the basics... 4 ide devices
ide0
hda = hard disk
hdb = hi-val 2242 CD-RW
ide1
hdc = DVD ROM
hdd = hard disk

having added to /etc/modules.conf
<snip>
#alias scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
options ide-cd ignore=hdb
alias scd0 sr_mod # load sr_mod upon access of scd0
pre-install sg modprobe ide-scsi # load ide-scsi before sg
pre-install sr_mod modprobe ide-scsi # load ide-scsi before sr_mod
pre-install ide-scsi modprobe ide-cd # load ide-cd before ide-scsi
<snip>

and in my grub.conf
<snip>

It looks like the last two set of message are generated by the loading of the

Final Notes:
The delay in logging is probably due to gnome checking out the devices and
hitting the scsi bus

I have tried without the hdb=ide-scsi kernel argument
no delay on login - no scsi log messages at boot
hdb is ignored by the ide-cd drivers thanks to
options ide-cd ignore=hdb # in modules.conf
as soon as I touch /dev/scd0 the scsi modules get loaded by modrpobe
exact same results and delays from that point on
I have tried manually loading the modules for scsi
(used the script in the CD Writer howto)
same results
I have tested with cdrecord -scanbus
get the same time out messages, just
a few more
I have tried letting xcdroast attempt to write a cd
attempts to write to the device and finally gives up...
same errors in the logs

What seems the most curious to me is that the mount worked in the end... so I
have been treating this as a configuration problem... The ide controllers
seem to be the only devices playing on interrupt 14 and 15 - and as I have a
hard disk on each as well (hda / hdd) I would expect worse problems if I were
really dropping interupts...

I would not discount that the drive may have a problem - except that for
reading I get the errors - and then it works anyway (mount and then use the
drive for ROM)...

I am not sure what to do next... One suggestion I saw in a board indicated
that I should disable atapi cdrom AND turn off SCSI CDROM support and rebuild
the kernel... At the moment I am using the binary distribution of Redhat
2.4.18-27.8.0 and have not rebuilt (turning these off seems wrong and some
repies the the person posting the suggestion also say this)

So I am lost at this point and looking for help...

Applogies for the very long post, but it seemed best to get all the details
in...

Thanks in advance,

I can't remember is I set up my cdrw or if the install did it, but here are a couple of configuration files in my system for your comparison:

My /boot/grub/grub.conf entry:
Code:
title Red Hat Linux 7.3
        root (hd0,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-3 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdd=ide-scsi
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.18-3.img
My /etc/fstab:
Code:

/dev/hda8       /home                   ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/hda6       /mnt/gentoo             reiserfs defaults       1 2

/dev/hda7       /mnt/mandrake           ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/hda1       /mnt/winc               vfat    defaults        0 0
/dev/hdc1       /mnt/wind               vfat    defaults        0 0
none            /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none            /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/hda9       /snd                    reiserfs defaults       1 2
/dev/hdc2       /pub                    ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/hda5       swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/fd0        /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/cdrom      /mnt/cdrom              iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom is a symbolic link to /dev/scd0
I have nothing in /etc/modules.conf or /etc/rc.d/rc.local for loading modules, so I guess that kudzu did it for me when I installed.

Perhaps your hard drive parameters aren't set right.

What is the output of this command?

hdparm hdb

My settings for my burner:
Code:
[root@tinwhistle root]# hdparm /dev/hdd

/dev/hdd:
 HDIO_GET_MULTCOUNT failed: Input/output error
 I/O support  =  0 (default 16-bit)
 unmaskirq    =  0 (off)
 using_dma    =  0 (off)
 keepsettings =  0 (off)
 HDIO_GET_NOWERR failed: Input/output error
 readonly     =  0 (off)
 BLKRAGET failed: Input/output error
 HDIO_GETGEO failed: Invalid argument
 busstate     =  1 (on)

for hdparm on hdb I have

[root@HomeSys root]# hdparm /dev/hdb

/dev/hdb:
HDIO_GET_MULTCOUNT failed: Input/output error
IO_support = 0 (default 16-bit)
unmaskirq = 0 (off)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
BLKRAGET failed: Input/output error
HDIO_GETGEO failed: Invalid argument

setting DMA to off

[root@HomeSys root]# hdparm -d0 /dev/hdb

/dev/hdb:
setting using_dma to 0 (off)
using_dma = 0 (off)

gives the same resultwith the lost interrupt

Thanks though....
