cdrdao config file?


Hi,

I'm trying to make an ISO image of a CD but each time I try it say something like:
***************************************
[root@localhost root]# cdrdao read-cd --read-raw --datafile ff7.bin --device 0,0,0 --driver generic-mmc-raw ff7.toc
Cdrdao version 1.1.7 - (C) Andreas Mueller <andreas@daneb.de>
SCSI interface library - (C) Joerg Schilling
Paranoia DAE library - (C) Monty

Error trying to open /dev/scd0 exclusively ... retrying in 1 second.
***************************************
But my cdrom is in /mnt/cdrom1 ! How can I change that ? I've tried for like 2 hours searching for help , HOW-TO and can't find a solution.

TIA!,Max.

Your /mnt/cdrom1 is probably the mount point for your CD if you mount a CD. That is established in /etc/fstab, where this mount point gets assigned a physical device, presumably /dev/cdrom1. You'll find that even that is a symlink to some actual device, /dev/scd0 in your case.

Your problem is, most likely, that the permissions for /dev/scd0 aren't set right in order for you (as a regular user) to make ioctl calls to it. Do (as root)

chmod 666 /dev/scd0

and try again.

Hope it helps,
mlp

Hi,

thanks for your reply, I tried but still get the same error... Maybe I am doing something wrong in my command line?
