Problem with k3b on Slackware 9.1
I've installed k3b (KDE CD-Burning application) and did the k3b-setup, and when i entered k3b i got this message:
drdao 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.
how can i enable this SCSI emulation for ATAPI devices ?
or any other way to fix this problem?

Is it a usb??? or is it ide??? Did u try cdrecord --scanbus or something like that to see its even beening noticed by the computer???? some more specs plz and i will try to help u....

I think you have tow cdrooms.
And a think one is emuled like /dev/sr0 and another is normally /dev/cdrom
this message is because the another cdrom is not ide-scsi, but it is not a problem.

now if you have only one cdrw do this:
at the lilo.conf put this comand append = "hdx=ide-scsi"
hdx = can be hda or hdc or hdb etc...
for see what is your "dmesg | grep hd"

Sorry for bad English,

you could do as the error message said
and get the latest version of cdrdao

choose your flavor

didn't look the link goe to the same one you hav installed

robo_br: i did what you said and this is the output that i got:
# dmesg | grep hd
ide0: BM-DMA at 0xf000-0xf007, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:DMA
ide1: BM-DMA at 0xf008-0xf00f, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, hdd:pio
hda: IC35L060AVVA07-0, ATA DISK drive
hda: attached ide-disk driver.
hda: host protected area => 1
hda: 120103200 sectors (61493 MB) w/1863KiB Cache, CHS=7476/255/63, UDMA(100)
hdb: attached ide-cdrom driver.
hdb: ATAPI 40X CD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)
hdc: attached ide-cdrom driver.
hdc: ATAPI 52X CD-ROM drive, 128kB Cache, DMA
hda: hda1 hda2 < hda5 hda6 hda7 hda8 >

and yes, i have one CD-ROM and one CD-RW...
i didn't really understood what you said about lilo.conf and what i need to edit...
many thanks.

well the line you will add to your lilo.conf file would be
append = "hdb=ide-scsi" since you pointed out in dmesg ::

My CD and DVD were hdc and hdd and I did both:

append = "hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"

Now they're /dev/sr0 and /dev/sr1. I forget why I needed to but I'm sure I had a good reason. ;) Don't forget to edit your symlink(s).

-- I think the reason was disk-to-disk copying or something.

where should i add it?
at the end of the file (after "# Linux bootable partition config ends") ?
or some part else?

slakmagik 10-07-2003 01:01 PM

It's the first (uncommented) line in mine - it should be in the 'global' section, I think, but I don't know that it much matters otherwise.

robo_br 10-07-2003 02:29 PM

in the directory /etc/lilo.conf
add this line: before the line /prompt
append = "hdb=ide-scsi"
after you do it:
type "lilo"
