I cannot burn with my dvd writer because it needs scsi emulation. I already tried the obvious but that didn't do the trick. I also have a working CD writer so all necessary scsi modules are present and loaded. (Mandrake Linux 9.0, Kernel 2.4.18).
hdb: LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-1653S, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdc: SONY CD-RW CRX175A1, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
My lilo.conf (I already added the hdb=ide-scsi part):
append="devfs=mount hdb=ide-scsi hdc=ide-scsi quiet"
Upgrading to a newer Linux distro is something that i'm planning to do but for the time being i wonder why i can't get scsi emulation for my DVD burner while i do have scsi emulation for my CD burner.
I'm not using cdrecord to burn disks but Nerolinux. Nerolinux nags i can't use my DVD burner because it has no scsi emulation.
