Question enable ide-scsi?how?


I just got a new ATAPI cd-r/w drive and i installed k3b...when i open k3b i get the following errors:


Solution: The best and recommended solution is to enable ide-scsi (SCSI emulation) for all devices. This way you won't have any problems.

and-

cdrdao does not run with root privileges
cdrdao needs to run with root privileges to be able to access the cd devices and use real time scheduling.This is also true when using SuSE's resmgr.
Solution: Use K3bSetup to solve this problem.

......When i run k3bSetup i also get the following error:

Could not find kdesu to run K3bSetup with root privileges. Please run it manually as root.

Can anyone help me?

It may work to run (as root):

modprobe ide-scsi

That should load the module, if you have it, and anything else that needs to be loaded to make it work. If that doesn't work, then you might be up against a kernel compile.

also when it says run it manually as root, you can open up a terminal and su - to root and then type k3bsetup to run it manually and try setting it up that way...also, you'll probably still have to do along the lines of what was mentioned in the above post..

For ide-scsi emulation, add the following line to your /etc/lilo.conf (and then as root execute lilo before re-booting): append="hdc=ide-scsi" (where hdc is your CDRW)

When you become root, be sure to use 'su -' (s u space hyphen) to ensure that all your paths get set correctly. modprobe is probably located in /sbin, which is not normally part of the path except for root. If that doesn't work, you can try explicitly /sbin/modprobe.

ok, im still getting all these:

cdrecord does not run with root privileges
cdrecord needs to run with root privileges to be able to access the cd devices, use real time scheduling, and set a non-standard fifo buffer. This is also true when using SuSE's resmgr.
Solution: Use K3bSetup to solve this problem.
cdrdao does not run with root privileges
cdrdao needs to run with root privileges to be able to access the cd devices and use real time scheduling.This is also true when using SuSE's resmgr.
Solution: Use K3bSetup to solve this problem.
readcd does not run with root privileges
Readcd needs to run with root privileges to be able to access the cd devices unless using SuSE's resmgr with a patched readcd.
Solution: Use K3bSetup to solve this problem.
cdrdao 1.1.7 does not support ATAPI
The configured version of cdrdao does not support writing to ATAPI devices without SCSI emulation and there is at least one writer in your system not configured to use SCSI emulation.
Solution: The best and recommended solution is to enable ide-scsi (SCSI emulation) for all writer devices. This way you won't have any problems. Or you install (or select as the default) a more recent version of cdrdao.
No support for ATAPI with cdrdao

Best way yet to change mpg to wav. Fire up xmms, choose for the output plugin...Disk Writer Plugin. Then select the output directory, add all the songs you want to change to the playlist, hit play and it will change all to wavs.

I would also just go with cdrdao for audio cd's. k3b is a pos imo (for audio). You can use gcdmaster to help with creating the tos.
