Question CD Burning with xcdroast


When i first start XcdRoast i get the following message:

The image-directories do not match the current system. Please check their configuration in Setup

What does this mean? Furthermore, i notice that my cd-rom is not listed under the Device-scan tab, just my burner is (HP 9100 CD-RW). The reason is that i do not have scsi-emulation for the cd-rom. AFter some reading i figure out i need to modify my grub.conf file to include scsi emulation for both devices. So i go to vi and modify to what it is below:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi

XcdRoast now lists both devices in under the device-scan tab, but when i try to play a cd from my cd-rom using xmms, it doesn't read it anymore and gives me an error.

This sounds like a two part question really. First what do I have to do to get my cd player to be seen as a scsi device, but still allow it to be read by xmms or and of the other audio players. Second, how can i get xcdroast to properly burn cds once the first question is resolved.

Thanks in advance! I appreciate any help.

The xcdroast problem has to do with the directory that you told it to store files in. in "setup" go to "hd settings" and make sure that the directories that you added are available on your system (not a one-time mounted folder or something)

Xmms might still be looking for your cd in /dev/hdd. go to /dev:
cd /dev
and make some symlinks so that your cd's can be found in the same places:

ln -sf scd0 hdc
ln -sf scd1 hdd

now try xmms and see if it works.

Good luck

EDIT: I had "hdc" linked to scd1... sorry

Also, one of our members (jetblackz) has written an easy to use command line "wrapper" program for burning CD's that you might wanna check out. It's very straight forward, and easy to use:

For you SCSI or SCSI emulated devices:
cdrecord -scanbus

For HD:
Primary Master = /dev/hda
Primary Slave = /dev/hdb
Secondary Master = /dev/hdc
Secondary Slave = /dev/hdd

This assumes you are using an IDE system without RAID or other aux devices.

Cool
