CD burning error.


I tried to burn a cd-rw on a using HL-DT-ST - CD-RW GCE-8400B and the gnome burner (burn:///) (which appears to be a frontend for cdrecord, I've never had any luck in getting cdrecord to work.) Anyway....
Code:
cdrecord: fifo was 0 times empty and 0 times full, min fill was 100%.
cdrecord: fifo had 64 puts and 0 gets.
cdrecord: OPC failed.
cmd finished after 60.362s timeout 60s
CDB:  54 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
cdrecord: Input/output error. send opc: scsi sendcmd: cmd timeout after 60.362 (60) s
cdrecord: Warning: using inofficial libscg transport code version (schily - Red Hat-scsi-linux-sg.c-1.75-RH '@(#)scsi-linux-sg.c	1.75 02/10/21 Copyright 1997 J. Schilling').
Error trying to open /dev/scd0 exclusively ... retrying in 1 second.
Linux sg driver version: 3.1.24
scsibus: 0 target: 0 lun: 0
scsidev: '0,0,0
this is the error it gives me and I was really hoping that someone would be able what the problem is, thanks.

Hi.

I haven't tried the burn:/// gnome way. But cdrecord is really easy once you get it to work, which shouldn't be hard.

We should be able to get it going though, can you do a couple of things for me. Can you please (as super user) cat your grub file...

cat /etc/grub.conf

on your kernel line you should have something like.....

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi

That last bit 'hdc=ide-scsi' is really important. If it isn't there, add it in.

After you boot up jump to a terminal screen again, and as super user (root) type cdrecord -scanbus and press enter.

It should list the CDRW and give you the device number, something like....

0,0,0 0) 'ATAPI ' 'CD-R/RW 16X10 ' 'G.CJ' Removable CD-ROM

That is mine, which is device 0,0,0

Let me know what you get.

a) I found ¨hdc=ide-scsi¨ in my grub.conf
b) I did a ¨cdrecord -scanbus¨ and got ¨ 0,0,0 0) 'HL-DT-ST' 'CD-RW GCE-8400B ' '1.06' Removable CD-ROM¨

I hope this is what you want to know.

yeah that's good.

Can you try this for me, i'll put it in steps to make it easier for you

1. Make a directory called "burn" in your home folder. (eg. mine is /home/craigh/burn)

2. put some files (about 50MB or something just to test) into the burn directory.

3. We are going to make a iso to burn now.... mkisofs -V "testcd" -J -R -D -x ./lost+found -o /home/craigh/burn/testcd.iso /home/craigh/burn and press enter. (obviously here you will need to change the '/home/craigh' bit to the account u are using).

4. Now we are going to burn the data cd. As root or super user... cdrecord dev=0,0,0 -data -dao -pad -eject -v /home/craigh/burn/testcd.iso and press enter (again change the '/home/craigh/' bit.

That should now start burning a data cd for you. This is exactly the way I burn every data CD that I create.

Let me know how you go.
