Question x-cdroast and cdrecord error


Hello good people.. :-)

I am using fedoracore linux. I have a Que_USB cdrw 24x12x40. I have been trying to configure cdrecord and x-cdroast. I understand it can be done with cdrecord alone. I keep running into the same problem. I think it might be because the /dev is not /dev/scd0 and it is /dev/pg5 or /dev/sr0, idunno. I wanted to ask about a good way to check and see what dev it is. Seems like it should be working, but its not (as you can see below). I just wanted to try to burn something small (without wasting a cd in the prossess -dummy). I have read the man page and the help file. I get the same error message (Error trying to open /dev/scd0 exclusively ... retrying in 1 second) 10 times and then, bail, in both cdrecord and x-cdroast. So I guess that the problem starts at cdrecord. I'll post any other info that you think will help. Thanks folks.. :-)

well, mabey im getting close

Do I have to specify a "remote SCSI" device because I'm using USB?

cdrecord -prcap

Cdrecord-Clone 2.01a19 (i686-redhat-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2003 Jrg Schilling
scsidev: '1,5,0'
scsibus: 1 target: 5 lun: 0
Linux sg driver version: 3.1.25
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg5'. Cannot open SCSI driver.

Should I use the scsidev: '1,5,0' or should I use 0,0,0 and are the '*,*,*' important?

I have used mkisofs to make testiso.iso
It is just a text file. I know that a small text file might now bw good for a test file to burn, because it wont even fill up the buffer.. does this look correct. It looks like there is a device drive loaded or a a compatible one able to be specified. I'm a little stumped. The Man page for cdrecord is great help but I am confused as to which options I need to specify. I think I made the ios correct, but its so small. And, I only have about 150MB of free space on this little 3GB HD. I have two 40GB NTFS drives full of mp3s. I just need to be able to burn all of them off. Then I can reformat my (stinkin) ntfs drive to ext3. I hope I can do this, because I only have 150MB of space. Man I just wish a new 60GB HD would fall from the sky into my lap. heh.. Any suggestions.

[root@localhost log]# mkisofs -r -o /var/log/testiso2.iso /var/log/testiso.txt
Total translation table size: 0
Total rockridge attributes bytes: 252
Total directory bytes: 0
Path table size(bytes): 10
Max brk space used 21000
176 extents written (0 Mb)

Thanks folks..
