Exclamation IDE-SCSI emulation problem


Hi! I have trouble setting up IDE-SCSI on my machine.
I have a CDRW SONY CRX 1411 and I tried everything I could find on the net to get cd-X-roast to work. My machine doesn't see my drive even if the ide-scsi module is loaded. it sees it still as /dev/hdc.
lilo.conf:
append=\"cdrom=ide-scsi\" tried hdc instead of cdrom and no difference.

fstab:
/mnt/cdrom /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/cdrom,fs=iso9660,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0
loaded module @ startup: /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi
Cat /proc/modules gives me
ide-scsi 8212 0
scsi_mod 90372 2 [sg ide-scsi]

any idea how I can get cdrecord or x-cd-roast to see my drive as scsi?

[richard@localhost hd]$ cdrecord -scanbus Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg 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\'.

Thanks!!!

First off the syntax appears incorrect, try this:
append="hdc=ide-scsi"

Make sure it's hdc not cdrom, and make sure hdc is the correct device:
hda = Primary Master
hdb = Primary Slave
hdc = Secondary Master
hdd = Secondary Slave



Cool

Look through your dmesg, first try by browsing the whole thing:
dmesg | less
Then narrow it down a bit:
dmesg | grep sd
dmesg | grep scd
dmesg | SONY

See if you can find any mention of your device there. If not, maybe you are missing a module...

Can you post up your /etc/lilo.conf and maybe snippets from your dmesg on your device?

How is your device connected? Are you trying this as root?

Cool

You did run the lilo command after the changes, didn't you? If not, the changes are not activated.

Hi here's my dmesg|less info(I cut lots):

Linux version 2.4.19-16mdk (quintela@bi.mandrakesoft.com) (gcc version 3.2 (Mandrake Linux 9.0 3.2-1mdk)) #1 Fri Sep 20 18:15:05 CEST 2002

hda: FUJITSU MPE3136AH, ATA DISK drive
hdb: MAXTOR 6L040J2, ATA DISK drive
hdc: SONY CD-RW CRX1611, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

Here is the other d|mess
[root@localhost richard]# dmesg|grep sd
Installing knfsd (copyright (C) 1996 okir@monad.swb.de).
[root@localhost richard]# dmesg|grep scd
[root@localhost richard]# dmesg|SONY
bash: SONY: command not found
[root@localhost richard]#

lilo.conf

initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="failsafe devfs=nomount"

And yes I run this as root. My CD-ROM is connected with an IDE cable.

What a headache lol

You need the load the SCSI modules before you can load the ide-scsi module. In my cas with Debian Woody i do the following;
modprobe loop
modprobe sg
modprobe ide-scsi

and of course place append=dev/hdd=ide-scsi in Lilo and rerun Lilo. See also the CD-writing How to, ikt explains this item in more detail

Talking Fixed!!

Hi!
Thank you for all your help. I still couldn't get it to see my drive. Got fed up, re-formatted my partition, installed Mandrake 9.1 and it detected it right away in the installation.

Thank you with your support, you guys are great!!

Richard
