Question CDRecord troubles


I recently installed a yamaha cdrw into my unix machine. (kernel 2.4.10- redhat 7.2) > I followed the instructions found at
www dot troubleshooters dot com slash linux slash cdrw dot htm

(sorry, it won't let me post urls)
After following these, I was able to burn a CD (17MB of data- just to test it). Later, when trying to burn my real files, I had a NUMBER of problems. I am trying to burn a 256MB iso. let me walk throuigh the process I take after rebooting:

#cdrecord -scanbus
---The drive shoiws up correctly on 1,0,0 as a Yamaha...
#cdrecord dev=1,0,0 speed=16 -v -dummy -eject myISO.iso
---This works fine. I Run it two times just to make sure
#cdrecord dev=1,0,0 speed=16 -v -eject myISO.iso
---This Burn (usually) starts, but fails after about 24MB
---[note] The most recent time, it first gave a long message, including "Controller returns wrong size for CD write parameter page"
---Now (every time it fails), when i try commands like "ls" or "man", I get an error message (e.g. "bash: /usr/bin/ls: Input/ouput error")
#cdrecord -scanbus
---1,0,0 100) 'ADAPTEC' 'ACB-5500' 'FAKE' NON CCS DISK
---The above message now appears on a scanbus... where did my Yamaha go?
--- After Rebooting, "scanbus" shows my yamaha drive again, and the commands in "/usr/bin" work again

OK, so, that is my problem. I have tried looking it up in a number of forums, but I have yet to find this kind of an error (with ALL of these problems) listed. The solutions for bad burns, etc. don't seem to work. Thanks for any help you can offer!

people with 2.5.x kernel seem to be having this particular problem- google it and you'll see. Did you upgrade your kernel?

Thanks for the reply, but the setup listed in the first link is exactly what I did. AS for the second link, I had seen thi before. There was no resolution, simply a discussion of the future of the ied-scsi module =) . There is more than one kerenl on th machine in question, but the kernel I am booting is 2.4.10

Yamaha CDRecord troubles

Hi,
In your post, you did not mention what driver was being used.
If you do
cdrecord -driver=help
you will be shown a list of drivers. Yamaha has a listing.
I do not know if using this driver in the cdrecord command will help, or is even a good idea. It might be worth looking at, if you haven't already.
Even so, I do not know why this should mess up the bash commands.
Good luck.
