cd writing is broken since upgrading to 2.6 kernel
I recently installed the 184.108.40.206 kernel. I did this so I could use a driver for my wireless lan stick, but that's another story...
Since doing this I noticed in my startup messages: ide-scsi is deprecated use ide-cd instead
(or something like that).
After a short google I found that the 2.6 kernel provides ATAPI access directly to cd burners without scsi emulation. Great I thought.. and tried the new setting.
The problem is that although cdrecord and cdrdao are perfectly happy and seem to work, the disks made are bad.
I burnt an audio CD and the sound was popping and buzzing - it certainly wasn't correct. This isn't a one off because I've tried a few times and tried upgrading cdrecord to the newest version etc.
Turning back on ide-scsi emulation solves the problem but I just wondered if anyone else has experienced problems like this.
Maybe it's my aged CD burner - a TEAC CD-W54E. ??
Any comments appreciated.
