SCSI-Emulation, IDE second drive (slave) urgent problem.


Hi, and thanks for letting me post. First of all I just got a new mobo / processor, that is, Asus A7S333, Athlon XP 2000+, I installed it right, on board sound is a little shitty, but IŽll replace it some day with something decent, not my top priority right now. So, I have an QPS CD Burner on IDE2/Master, it works right, hdc=ide-scsi, all modules loaded, cdrecord recognizes it, and I have a Creative PC-DVD 5X on IDE2/Slave, but It doesnt recognize it at ALL, Its definately not a hardware problem, because it works in Windows, and its recognized in the BIOS without the slightest problem. I grepped dmesg, I read it through, no erorrs, absolutely no detection, Im completely lost, First I thought it may be an option in modules.conf, options ignore ide-cd hdd, to be exact. But I checked everyt single file, and nothing. Then I though lets use the distros default install kernel 2.4.20-bf2.4 still It doesnt work, (And it did before), So I dont think is a kernel problem, maybe module configuration loading problem?, mmn I dunno, Im running Debian SID, with a custom compiled 2.4.22 kernel.

HDC= CDRW
HDD= NOT RECOGNIZED DVD

Anyways, thanks in advance

-Marc

Disconnect both drives.
Move the IDE2/Master to IDE2/Slave postion on cable, change jumper to slave
Move the IDE2/Slave, to the IDE2/Master, change jumper to master on device.
Reboot and tell us the results.

It could be that your kernel is setting up your DVD drive as an SCSI, so it may be limited to one SCSI device. After you turn off your computer disconnect the CD-RW drive and connect it to the DVD drive. If LINUX detects it, then you need to compile your kernel to accept more than one SCSI device. devfsd might be having a problem, but I don't know.

Do you mind listing dmesg

Its clearly not a hardware problem I tried
Setting it viceversa, cdrw slave, and dvd master, It only recognizes the master drive. Even without the scsi options passed to grub.
The slave isnt recognized at all. Just the matter no matter if scsi or not. Not a hardware problem im looking into recompiling the kernel *again*... Or maybe does anybody know?

If you've got 2 CD/DVD drives sharing the same ribbon cable, that's always trouble (at least in my experience anyway) Have you tried setting up your rig so that the HD is Master on IDE1, the DVD is Slave on IDE1, and the CD-RW is Master on IDE2. The point is to not put 2 removable media drives on the same ribbon. I don't know if this will be of any use or not, but I was having a bear of a time trying to get 2 CD-RW's to play nice, but only succeeded when they were on separate ribbons. -- J.W.

Maximum number of CDROM devices that can be loaded as modules = 2, says the kernel, anyways.. heres my dmesg. Its a little messy, right now..

Dude - give it a try. It doesn't work now, so if it doesn't work the way I suggested, you're no worse off. Plus, it's cake to put it back to the previous config. -- J.W.

You can also try appending your boot with
hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi

it won't hurt to see what happens.

ide-scsi may only support one device?

How would I exactly find out if the "ide-scsi" is capable of supporting more than one ide device?
Below is the listing for symbolic links in /dev/ and the fstab



When I do "mount /cdrom" then it will mount one drive either the HP or the YAMAHA depending on which scd is linked to cdrom. If scd0 is lined to cdrom then it will mount HP, if scd1 is linked to cdrom then it will mount the YAMAHA, but it will never mount /cdrom1. It always gives an error: mount: mount point /cdrom1 does not exist

Any and all ideas would be greatly appreciated?

lilo.conf has the :append="hdd=ide-scsi hdb=ide-scsi"

and modules.conf has these additional lines:

options ide-cd ignore=hdb # tell the ide-cd module to ignore hdb
options ide-cd ignore=hdd
alias scd0 sr_mod # load sr_mod upon access of scd0
alias scd1 sr_mod
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

m4rccd,
I would have to say if no one else comes up with anything else, I would rebuild the kernel, as suggest by someone else. If rebuilding the kernel does not work, I would then suggest you move back a few steps and try Debian Stable.

i'm using debian unstable, with a cdrom drive and a dvd drive on the same cable.
works fine for me.

my two optical drives are:
hdc: CW058D ATAPI CD-R/RW, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdd: HL-DT-STDVD-ROM GDR8162B, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

to get them both to work all i had to do was put

append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"

in my lilo.conf. my only thing is that i have a /cdrom0 and /cdrom1, /cdrom0 being the non-dvd drive and /cdrom1 being the dvd drive. i'd like to have just a /cdrom and /dvd, but i know i have to edit /etc/fstab to do that, i just haven't gotten around to it. the one thing i can't figure out is how to let all users have access to the drives. i'd like to watch dvd's and such but i don't want to have to be root to do it.

anyhoo.. hope that helps you.
