re: cdrw recog and arson or kb3


Hello All:

It's been suggested that I should use either arson or kb3 to recognize my cdrw (it's there, but I don't know what's it's called in /dev, so I can't mount it).

Has anyone used either of these?
Are there any drawbacks to using them rather than just writing cdwrite from the command line?

Please let me know.

You must be kidding. K3B v 0.10 is the best Cd-writing app I have used (better and simpler than Nero or Roxio).

But K3b is only graphical front end. You will still need applications like cdrecorder and cdrdao. And you do not have to mount drive to write a CD.

You must commonly have ide-scsi emulation enabled in your kernel to use CD-RW for writing. Then the drive is probably /dev/sr0. You also have to log on as root to configure K3b and add yourself as valid cd writing person.

I don't have an sr0 in /dev. Could it be sr0 even if it doesn't appear in /dev?
But I do know that scsi emulation is enabled through lines in
grub.conf:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-3 ro root=/dev/hda2 hdc=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-3.img

I'd really like to know what my cdrw is.

Please heelllllp.

Your drive is in this case probably /dev/hdc

But you must have /dev/sr0 (working ide-scsi) to use some cd writing apps. It is strange that you do not have sr0 in /dev. You pobably do not still have ide-scsi enabled in kernel. Just adding ide-scsi to start-up commands is not enough. Check this page: http://sdb.suse.de/sdb/en/html/mkrap...-writer-e.html

Thank you all for your replies.

I've found my cdrw. It's scd0.

I've successfully mounted my cdrom.
Now: how do I play music cds?

urgently awaiting relevant replies.
