Question CDRDAO configuration question


My Mandrake 9.1 tells me:

no cdrdao driver found.

go to device settings and chose a driver.

for most current drives this would be generic-mmc.



I can't seem to find device settings.
I'm also a little confused, do I change the driver on my CDR / DVD
or do I set this driver for cdrdao?


Anybody know what to do in a case like this ?

did you download the cdrdao file yet?
you might have to get that separately

try:

whereis cdrdao

in your terminal

if it says:
cdrdao:

then you don't have that file yet

it says
cdrdao: /usr/bin/cdrdao/usr/share/cdrdao/usr/share/man/man1/cdrdao.1.bz2

It should be installed, kde says it is installed, right after I installed mandrake 9.1.

I was using k3b, it will burn data just fine, I tried copying a cd and that is when it popped up those messages...

Go to the cdrdao supported drives page, find the driver for your cdr, and then to use it on the command line you simply run

$ cdrdao <command> --device <bus,id,lun> --driver <driver> file.toc

So for example if I want to burn my_mix.toc, I run

$ cdrdao write --device 0,2,0 --driver generic-mmc-raw my_mix.toc

You might also check that the permissions are set properly on cdrdao.

I don't know, I've never used that program. Did SimpleCDR-X work?

In K3b, select Settings->Configure K3b and click on the Devices icon. Under your CD burner's listing for Cdrdao driver, click on the text next to it (You'll probably find it set to 'auto'). This will put a rectangle around the text with a drop-down icon at the right. click the drop-down icon, select 'generic-mmc' from the list and click OK.

Hey, thanks geoff, that kicks butt, I'd been trying to figure that one out too, in fact I was already asking how that would be possible a couple days ago...

Thanks again...
