Problems with Grip, Konquerer and cdrw


Hi,

I am completely new here, have been using linux for about 9 months, windows free. I am running RedHat 8.0, and when I try to create rip and encode files in Grip or Konqueror, it only lets me do it from my cd drive, not my cdrw.

My drives are listed as dev/cdrom for the regular drive, and dev/cdrom1 for the cdrw.

When I change the dev in Grip, nothing happens, it will only read from the regular cd drive. Konqueror will only recognize the cd in the regular drive as well. To make it even more confusing, XCdroast works fine with my cdrw. I cannot find out how to fix this, and have looked. I have a feeling it is something simple, and I am just ignorant. I run Gnome 2.0 and KDE 3.0.3, and have the same problem in either environment.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Rich

well it depends how you are trying to access the cd burner unit in grip. obviously if the burner is worknig then you will have already got scsi emulation set up ok, so you will need to use the scsi alias device instead of the actaul ide one, as that won't work properly. /dev/cdrom is not a real device, just a pointer to something less friendly looking, e.g. /dev/hdc. but this is the ide reference not the scsi one, so you should instead use the /dev/scd0 device, which is what the scsi emulation (required to use a burner at the moment) will have set up. IF scd0 if the exact name then "grip --device /dev/scd0" should work fine.

p.s. XCDRoast is crap, try eroaster or *anything* else...

That did the trick. Thanks for the explanation, that made sense.

One other quick question. What else is good to use, for burning? I don't care for grip, and am heading off to look for eroaster right now.

Thanks again,
Rich

oh, one other thing

how do I do the same for Konqueror? I can't get eroaster up and running, unfortunately.

Thanks.

well i would guess that maybe your /etc/fstab file contains a reference to the hdc file rather than the scd0 one.
