Can't see my SCSI CDRW


I have a Adaptec 1502 (I think)... which ML 8.1 recognizes. However, /etc/fstab and /etc/mtab show no sign of the drive (a Yamaha 4416s).

I tried mounting it manually, but no luck, it tells me that there is no such device as sda1 in my /etc/fstab and /etc/mtab.

Can anyone give me any tips on getting this drive mounted? Also, then pointers on the best software for burning.

Thanks,

Doug

What about mounting /dev/scd0?
Is your SCSI card recognised at all?

try adding this to fstab "/dev/sr0 /cdrom iso9660 ro,noauto,user 0 0"


then "mkdir /cdrom" insert a cd, "mount /cdrom" "ls /cdrom" and it should read.

I verified that ML 8.1 sees my SCSI controller card. It is a Adaptec, AHA-1505 (althought, ML 8.1 sees it as an AVA-1505.) My Yamaha 4416S is not shown.

Regarding the mount suggestions above, does it not matter that there is no scsi devices in /dev (i.e. there is no /dev/scdo or /dev/sr0, or anything like that listed.)

as root try "insmod aha152x.o" if that doesnt work, you will have to recompile your kernel to get the scsi drivers to work. if there are no scsi devices listed in your /dev dir, you probably dont have any scsi support compiled in the kernel, and will need to compile it, unless your running devpts, which you probably still should recompile your kernel to optimise it.
