[0,0,0] ATAPI CD-RW52XMAX 1.0
[ATAPI:0,0,0] TEAC CD-W54E 7.1F
In the CD Settings section of xcdroast's setup, the CD Writer Device is set to the TEAC device. I would like to make it the other device but it won't let me. I tried clicking the dropdown arrows but nothing happens. I can set the CD-RW52XMAX as the read device, but that's it. If anyone can suggest a solution to be able to change this, that would be great.
I'll take shot. It sounds like XCDRoast does not see the ATAPI CD-RW52XMAX as a cd
recording device. you mention,,,,
P.S. does anyone know what those icons under "Type" in Device Scan mean? There is a plain silver one and a gold one with a laser...
On my system I have one CD drive that is a writer and the other is only a reader.
I've got the two different icons that you speak of. GOLD with the laser is my writer.
And silver is the reader (as in it can only read thats it)
Since you have a gold and silver i would think that the software is only seeing
the TEAC as the *only* writer. When it says 'TYPE' (gold / silver) I think its saying
thats the type of drive. Not what that drive is assigned to do, Read or write.
You were probably thinking the same thing since you asked about it.
From the XCDroast FAQ
"/4. My writer is not on the supported list! Is is supported anyway or
when it will be supported? /
Please look at the cdrecord-homepage
for a current list of supported writers. But even when your writer is
not on the list, chances are very high that it is supported. Newer
writers (less than one year) usually are SCSI3/MMC conform, which means
that they run anyway, even when their name is not on that list. All
ATAPI-Writers are supported. Parallel-Writers are also all supported,
when the parallel-port driver in the Linux kernel works. (See your
You didn't mention the manufacture of your 52x drive but check that link.
On that page is a link to unsupported and supported drives, check it.
