Burning a CD help


i have slackware 7.1 with the 2.2.16 distribution and i have an ide cd rewritable drive, I don't know how to burn a cd please help..

i have already insmod the ide-scsi thing and edited my lilo.conf to have the append hdc thing, i used mkisofs to successfully make the cd_image of my directory, and then when i try to cdrecord -scanbus, it does nothing at all, so i have to cancel the process... please help thanks...

you need this in /etc/lilo.conf

append="hdc=ide-scsi"

you need to run lilo and reboot


when the machine is booted the ide drive will become a scsi device on the system most likely called /dev/sr0

cdrecord -scanbus

Take a look at this post and see if it helps. If not, explain specifically what you have tried already and any error messages.

okay I added that line to my lilo.conf, and rebooted, when I do dmesg it shows my seagate tape drive detected as st0 at scsi0 with the dev=0,0,0 it shows the cd-rom/cd rw drive as hdc

I dunno, is there some problem because my tape drive is at scsi0 dev=0,0,0

Also, when I do cdrecord -scanbus, nothing happens, it just freezes, and I have to end that process.

Your cdrom drive should not show up as hdc. It is still loading as a IDE device and not SCSI. Make sure the ide-cd module is not loaded. The tape drive should not cause a problem. I have SCSI tape drive and the IDE CD shows up as a seperate controller.

okay I did lsmod and the ide-scsi is there, and the ide-cd is not there, but the output that you show that you get when you type cdrecord -scanbus, I can't get this, when i type that it just says cdrecord version 1.8.1 and then just stays like that frozen, so i have to end that process

also when i do dmesg, it says at first
hdc:PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4012A, ATAPI CDROM drive
ide0: 0x1f0-0x1f7, 0x3f6 on irq 14
ide1: 0x170-0x177, 0x136 on irq 15

then a little further down
hdc: ATAPI 40X CD-ROM CD-R/RWW, 4996kB Cache
Uniform Cd-Rom driver Revision 3.10

LinuxQuestions is a voluntary site, and all questions are answered in peoples own time. Bumping a thread after a couple of days is fine, as long as you can give an update on what you have tried since the last post and such like. But simply bumping it with a fullstop just one hour after the previous post will not make you any friends here.

it really sounds like the append line is not working, try examining it's context, maybe rearrange it if you have more than one thing in the append line, you cannot have more than one append line.

you have to run lilo
lilo <enter>
reboot.
the append has to be on the kernel that you are booting.
you have to ide-scsi and sg built into the kernel
or as modules.

if the append="hdc=ide-scsi" is set up right and working,
then you will no longer be able to access your drive as
hdc. thats how you will know.
