xcdroast lost my cd-rw drive?
i posted this in the newbie forum but no one replied so i'm hoping this might be a more appropriate forum.
i have a cd-rw drive (as well as a separate cdrom drive) that was working fine until just the other day. I was using xcdroast which i had just installed. I was performing a dummy burn and the app hung and i ended up killing it. now my cd-rw drive has "dissapeared" (my cdrom drive is still fine however). the line from my fstab has dissapeared and everytime i add it back it gets erased when i reboot, along with the mnt/cdrw directory and the symbolic link in the /dev/ directory.
when i run: cdrecord -scanbus i get the following:
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 J�g Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. 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 running dmesg only lists my cdrom drive, not my cd-rw.
I hope that is enough info. i am running redhat 9, kernel 2.4.20-8. my fstab looks like this right now:
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,user,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/hda2 /mnt/19gig vfat defaults,umask=001,gid=500 0 0
the line i added for the cd-rw drive was the same as for the cdrom but wtth cdrw instead of cdrom
the symbolic link was from /dev/cdrw to /dev/scd0 but i also tried hdd, hdc etc.
any help would be much apperciated as i've search around on the web for a day or two and haven't found a solution. thanks!
