Cdrecord How To
Is the command "cdrecord" only restricted for SCSI cd-writers?
Because mine is IDE, and I didn't know how to parameter the command so that I could burn CDs from the terminal (command-line).
Does anyone have any idea about this?
Thanks guys.:)

it works fine on ide burners... you just need scsi emulation and stuff...

If you're using a 2.6.x kernel you shouldn't use SCSI emulation for IDE cd writers. You should with previous kernels though.

itsme86 is right. In the 2.6 kernel scsi emulation is not necessary. Heres how you can track down your cdrom drive:


# dmesg | grep hd
Kernel command line: root=/dev/hdb2
    ide0: BM-DMA at 0xf000-0xf007, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:DMA
    ide1: BM-DMA at 0xf008-0xf00f, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, hdd:DMA
hda: WDC WD800JB-00ETA0, ATA DISK drive
hdb: MAXTOR 6L060J3, ATA DISK drive
hda: max request size: 1024KiB
hda: 156301488 sectors (80026 MB) w/8192KiB Cache, CHS=16383/255/63, UDMA(100)
hdb: max request size: 128KiB
hdb: 117266688 sectors (60040 MB) w/1819KiB Cache, CHS=65535/16/63, UDMA(133)
hdc: ATAPI 40X DVD-ROM DVD-R CD-R/RW drive, 8192kB Cache, UDMA(33)
Adding 1044216k swap on /dev/hda3.  Priority:-1 extents:1
EXT3 FS on hdb2, internal journal

In my case the cdrom drive is /dev/hdc so cdrecord is:


# cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc -scanbus
That should show you your cdrom drive.
