Hi, Linuxpista.

It looks like your RW drive is being seen on "1,0,0". To burn with it try doing:

Code:
cdrecord dev=1,0,0 <options> imagefile.iso
Let me know if this works for you. Good luck!

You have problems with the mounting of your CD-burner. It is linked as a kind of harddisk.
You see it by this line:
Warning: Using badly designed ATAPI via /dev/hd* interface.

your cdrom should be under /dev/cdrom or dev/dvd
Check if you have this devices and change the definition for cdrecord, that it records on /dev/cdrom

Cheers Lars

P.S. Ever tried K3b?

I'm not a big expert, but maybe it is not problem to have the dvd like /dev/hd*, it is really a kind of disk, but I think it should be maybe refered like /dev/sd* - it is maybe SCSI device, how did you install your mandrake?

I'm using mandrake 10.0 Official, and I'm burning iso images using k3b, it works for me excellent, I have also two cd devices, one is cdrom and the other cd-rw.

I have also the warning with "Using badly designed ATAPI via /dev/hd* interface."

i think you must give a kernel option at boot time .

in my "lilo.conf" -file i have :

append="hdc=ide-scsi"

( hdc is my cd-burner )

Depends on your burner

With my particular CD burner (LG CD-RW CED-8080B 1.04), cdrecord incorrectly guesses the device type and mode. I had to create a wrapper script around the command to force ATAPI and SAO:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
cdrecord -sao dev=ATAPI:0,0,0 speed=8 -eject $*
Adjust this for the proper device number from your cdrecord -scanbus output.
