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?
thx.

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,
Andrew

well the line you will add to your lilo.conf file would be
append = "hdb=ide-scsi" since you pointed out in dmesg ::
hdb: SONY CD-RW CRX175A1, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

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.

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.

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