CD burner very slow (7kb sec) w/SuSE 8.2


I hope someone can help me.

I tried burning 55 megs of pictures and it took 2.0 hours, using k3b cd burner.

Also, I cannot burn .mp3s at all.

I'm using SuSE 8.2 and like it pretty much overall but this burner issue has me really frustrated.

I have a CDRW as a master on my secondary IDE and also an older CDRW as it's slave. Both drives can be read.

I'm not sure what else to add to be more helpful w/my problem.

Try opening a console, as root and typing "cdrecord -scanbus" without the quotes. You should get a list something like this -
cdrecord -scanbus

If you don't, then you need to enable SuSE to see your writer as a scsi drive. You need to find out if you use grub or lilo, and post back.

My system shows this when I type in what you said. I think I use grub but I'm going to check.

ide0
hda master
cdrom slave

Thanks for your input but I think the first guy is onto it, I think I need to set up the scsi-ide... I tried what you suggested, it didn't work either.

ok ok lets see if i get the 10 bucks hehe
add this line to your grub.conf/lilo.conf file depending on what bootloader you use...
append="hdd=ide-scsi"
hdd may differ on your drive, as you will put whatever your device is...actually now that i read what you said it will be hdc, and hdd in your case ...
so you can add this to cover both devices...
append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"

Forget the money.

Each of your drives is already seen as a scsi device ( Linux does this to enable the drives to write quickly, as does Windows ). So, you don't need to mess with either Grub or Lilo.

I suspect your problem may be with K3B. If I were you, I'd download the latest version of XCDRoast. There are SuSE 8.2 rpms on this page - http://xcdroast.sourceforge.net/RPMS/a14/suse-8.2/ Download either one and install with Yast2. Then run it and see if it works better than K3B.
