cdrecord: no media present - tray closed message


I have fedora core 3 kernel 2.6.10-1.760 installed on a gateway 7200x pc.

The system includes a samsung cd/dvd+-rw drive.

When I insert a blank cd/r disc or dvd/r disc and try to burn an iso onto it using the following command,

cdrecord -dao -dev=/dev/hda bkup.iso

I get the following output:
scsidev: '/dev/hda'

try this
cdrecord -v dev=ATA:0,1,0 bkup.iso

homey,

No you were right the first time.
device 0,0,0 is the cd/dvdrw drive while 0,1,0 is a cd/dvd drive. I have tried both settings.
When I use 0,1,0 I get no cd/dvd recorder present.

DPenguin,

I noticed that you have an error message (medium not present - tray closed) and another "cdrecord: No disk / Wrong disk!". I had the same problem with Fedora Core 2 (kernel 2.6.5).

I know that in kernel 2.4.x, ide-cdrom drives have to emulate being a SCSI drive. I found the site:
http://linux.sgms-centre.com/howto/cdwriting.php
which describes the settings neccessary in the kernel configuration for scsi emulation. I found scsi emulation was not set. Once I set it and compiled the kernel, I was able to burn CDs.

However, it mentions to add the parameter "hdx=ide-scsi" to the kernel command line in grub.conf. I tried it and "cdrecord -scanbus" couldn't recognize anything. I removed it and all was well.

I used the command "cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus" to find the scsibus,target,lun (which, in my case, was 0,1,0). I then used the command "cdrecord -dummy -dev ATAPI:0,1,0 -data <iso file>" to make sure everything was working properly. Once I was sure, I then updated /etc/cdrecord.conf as such:

CDR_DEVICE=cdrom
cdrom= ATAPI:0,1,0 -1 -1 burnfree

Now I can use the command "cdrecord -data <iso file>".

Rick
