CD-R Drivers for ManDrake 9.0


I need CD-R drivers for a TEAC CD-R56.

I am using ManDrake 9.0, KDE 3.0

Thank you for any help that you can give!

Is this an IDE drive? If so, you MORE THAN LIKELY don't need drivers. Actually Mandy should have picked it up during install.

Anyway, post here the contents of the /etc/lilo.conf file and we will see what we can do for ya. Also, might wanna post the the output of dmesg.

Cool

It looks like the R56 (or its revisions) are SCSI drives, in which case it should be even simpler!

It is a SCSI device, internal CD-R drive.

It appears that it has picked it up during installtion, but what proggie can I use to burn data to the CD?

MasterC, when using IDE/Atapi CDR drives, you need to specify in the bootloader (usually) which ide device should emulate scsi, so you'd need to first identify which device it is (hdx), then find your bootloader (lilo/grub/ntloader/whatever), edit it, save changes, reboot and then get to this step:

FrozenDeath... there are a number of different programs around for CD burning under Linux. My personal favourite would have to be Eroaster, but I was also quite impressed with CDBakeOven. You should have lots on your install CDs anyway, just use your software installer thingy to find them.

I dont know about you all, but I've had some weird results with Man 9.0 and CD-R/RWs; for example my grip has errors when reading the CD , as does some installation programs. yet if I umount the CDROM and then remount it, its fine. Thoughts on this?

You using supermount? If so, disable it.

Thymox, thanks for that, but I meant for SCSI drives. Not scsi emulation, but actual drives.

Thanks

SCSI CD drives

Any CD writing program i.e xcdrecord, gcombust etc. Some programs require the cdrecord bus, id which you can get by the following

cdrecord --scanbus
