I can't configure my cd-dvd recorder as a recorder!!! slamd64


Hi, the last week i've installed slamd64 11(it's a non official distribution of slackware for 64bit proccesors)and it's working great, i could configure everything but my cd-dvd recorder, slamd64 think it's an ordinary cd-rom so, i can't burn any cd-dvd.

I've tried to add the line append="hda=ide-scsi" to the file lilo.conf, but it doen't seems to work.

If run the command: cdrecord -scanbus i get this:

root@lier007:/usr/src/linux# cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01 (--) Copyright (C) 1995-2004 Jörg Schilling

cdrecord: If you have unexpected problems, please try Linux-2.4 or Solaris.

root@lier007:/usr/src/linux#

Which is not my cd-dvd writer, that's my hard drive(a sata one).

If it helps, my burner is a pionner and i'm using the 2.6.16.29 kernel.

So, what do i have to do to make it work???

Thanks in advance!!!

------------Edit--------------
I think this should be moved to the hardware forum, sorry, my mistake.

Well you do not need the line append="hda=ide-scsi" in lilo in the first place.

What does the command cdrecord dev=ATA -scanbus or cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus show?? Is the CD/DVD recorder and known by the system??? If yes the simply use this device to burn CD media, for example; cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc <something>

To record DVD media use growisofs, examples below;

growisofs -Z /dev/scd0 -R -J /some/files
growisofs -M /dev/scd0 -R -J /more/files
growisofs -Z /dev/scd0=image.iso

The 2 times appears the cd-dvd writer, so i think this is better, but what do i have to do to use the program k3b??? i know that the cd-dvd write it's at /dev/hda, but k3b doesn't seems to recognize it.

I don't have any /dev/scd0 device in /dev folder

THANK A LOT!!!

You know that it is device /dev/hda, so tell k3b about where this device is;

k3b-->Settings-->Configure K3b...-->Devices Add Tab click on the Add Device... button

A few days ago, i've tried that but didn't work, i get the error: could not find an additional device at /dev/hda, so i ran it from the console so i can get more information but i didn't see anything that could help me; so when i read your post i thought it won't work, so here i was, writing the output of the console when i saw a line who says "k3b: could not open device /dev/hda (Permission denied)", i can't believe that i ignored the last time. So, that was the problem, only a permission problem; i changed the permission and everything seems to work.

Thanks a lot!!!
