Unhappy KonCD


I have RH 7.3 and I am triyng to burn a cd I have a scsi cdrw and an ide cdrom each time I try to burn copy cd's or burn some files I recive the following massage:

/usr/bin/readcd: No such file or directory. Cannot open SCSI driver.

Error, exit status: 2

the strange thing is that normally I can read files from the cdrw and from the cdrom.

Can someone help please?

For the CD burner software to work they need to see the CDROM drives as SCSI devices.

So I'm going to start you off here (http://seismo.ethz.ch/linux/xcdroast.html), and the first thing you will need to do is to add the proper "append" command to you lilo.conf file (ask back if you have problems). Be sure to re-run lilo and then reboot.

I would try to burn a CD after that, as I didn't have to do anything other than this to get mine going (IIRC).

This is true, but you need to do the same thing to your lilo for either program.

In short, your system needs to see your IDE ATAPI CDROM drives as SCSI devices. So you would do this step for either program. Some CD burner programs don't require this, but these two programs do (and it's the same step for either program).

Here are some other links if you would like some more details:
http://www.google.com/linux?q=koncd+...&ie=ISO-8859-1

And to run lilo you need to:

1) "su" to root.

2) Save your old lilo.conf to lilo.conf.backup for safety's sake.

3) Edit your lilo.conf to include the "append..." line. Save it as lilo.conf.

4) Run "/sbin/lilo"
