X CD Roast don't recognize my DVD drive as a read device


When I go to configure X CD Roast, it don't recognize my DVD drive (/dev/cdrom2) as a read device. It works fine with my /dev/cdrom which is my CD-RW drive. What do I change to get it to recognize it? Both are mounted and can be accessed at will under Konqueror or Konsole.

When you go into the Setup > CD Settings, can you see your DVD as a read device under the CD Reader Configuration?

What about in the device scan tab? Does it list both your CD-RW and DVD there?

Have you checked their FAQ which explains it in detail if some hardware isn't detected, etc? http://www.xcdroast.org/faq/#2

That's my problem. In setup, CD-Roast don't have my DVD drive listed. However, I can go /mnt/cdrom2 and access it all day. I think it's listed as /dev/cdrom2 or something but I know it's mounted as /mnt/cdrom2. How do I make CD-Roast recognize it?

Did you not read my reply? There is a link with good information regarding devices not being recognized. And its not a matter of viewing a mounted cdrom drive, Xcdroast needs to know the actual device is there, not the mounted filesystem.

I had this problem, I think if you add hd? =scsi to your lilo file it will pick it up ok. It is all explaining on the xcdroast site somewhere.

what distribution are you using?

I've got SuSE 8.1 with grub-loader.

my CD-RW(hdc) needs scsi-emulation (of course)

but my CD-ROM-device(hdd) dislikes scsi.

so I had to set hdc to ide-cd

I changed it at: /boot/grub/menu.lst
_______________________________________________________
/ \
gfxmenu (hd0,0)/message
color white/blue black/light-gray
default 0
timeout 8

title linux
kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda4 hdd=ide-cd hdc=ide-scsi vga=788
initrd (hd0,0)/initrd
title floppy
root (fd0)
chainloader +1
title failsafe
kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz.shipped root=/dev/hda4 ide=nodma apm=off acpi=off vga=normal nosmp maxcpus=0 disableapic 3
initrd (hd0,0)/initrd.shipped
\_______________________________________________________/

then my RW runs perfect!

hope you understand my beginner-english^^

Seems like I am supermounting my CD-RW and DVD drive. Could that be related to my problem under Mandrake 9? I haven't got a chance to fool with it like I want, so it may be answered in that CD-Roast FAQ TrickyKid provided. I basically have no time other than the weekends, and they're often busy too. (Dam Compaq with Winblows 2000! )

Shouldn't at all be related to your supermounting in why Xcdroast isn't detecting your drive.

Let's see... Since Linux (I guess) needs to emulate IDE as SCSI, if SCSI emu was to blame, I wouldn't be able to mount and access my CD drives, would I? ...or am I completely wrong here?

Anything else? After putting in those lines listed in TrickyKid's link, I found my CD-RW drive was completely dropped. ...couldn't even access it, period! Any other ideas? ...could just be me acting like an idiot though. I'll post my files later for you guys to look at.

Why don't you try k3b or cdbakeoven?

title linux
kernel (hd0,1)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 vga=0x31a max_scsi_luns=1 hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi hdclun=0 splash=silent showopts
initrd (hd0,1)/boot/initrd

Have fun :-)

'cause that'll melt the disk. j/k. X CD Roast seems to work great for me, except that one thing. Also, I'm on a 56K connection, so it'll take awhile to download. ...then on top of that, I suck at installing software for Linux. I have yet to have a successful installation (besides a Tomsrtbt Linux disk maker, but that's foolproof). As far as my problems, I tried everything I've found (and I may be doing it wrong).

Here's my modules.conf with Windows errors where I copied it over, didn't move it fortunately.


probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
probeall usb-interface usb-uhci ehci-hcd
alias eth0 8139too
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
options ide-cd ignore="hdc hdd" (new line)


Here's my lilo.conf

boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
default=linux
keytable=/boot/us.klt
prompt
nowarn
timeout=100
message=/boot/message
menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
ignore-table
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=linux
root=/dev/hda6
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi quiet"
vga=788
read-only
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=linux-nonfb
root=/dev/hda6
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi"
read-only
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=failsafe
root=/dev/hda6
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=nomount hdc=ide-scsi failsafe"
read-only
other=/dev/hda1
label=windows
table=/dscsi
#append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi" (new line, killed sound 'til line disabled)
append="hdc=scsi hdd=scsi" (new line, killed DVD-ROM)

Any ideas what might be causing my problem?

My hard disk is a primary master--hda, my CD-RW is a secondary master--hdc, and my DVD is secondary slave--hdd. ...or is the secondary master a hdb when no primary slave is there? ...that might be related to my problem.

What is the output of:

df

You should see some clues.
