Cd-rw


Hi there!
I once already created a thread like this but it didn't help me. So I thought I'll try again. I have Linux Slackware 8.1 and it doesn't detect my Teac CD-W512 CD-RW. When I look at the things that start a boot time I clearly see that it detects my CD-RW but when I check the /etc/fstab file I don't see anything about my CD-RW. Can anyone help me cinfigure it? Thanks in advance!

Hi

That's because Slack rules, and doesn't do anything you don't want it to. So the entry wouldn't be in there unless you put it in there.

Do you want to read CD's from your burner as well as write, or just read? IF just write, you don't actually need any addition to your fstab.

I have a problem, when I try to do cdrecord -scanbus it gives out something like this:
Cdrecord 1.11a24 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.

What shoud I do?

Well, that could possibly be fixed by putting a line in your /etc/lilo.conf file.

To know which device see dmesg|less or if it's your first burner, I would bet my cd coasters that it's scd0 or sr0

the line is in the append section, if you don't have an append section, copy and paste this:
append = "hdX=ide-scsi"
And replace X with the device itself from this table:
Primary Master = hda
Primary Slave = hdb
Secondary Master = hdc
Secondary Slave = hdd

Okley dokley (ned ripoff )?

Cool

he he he he I am glad I could help. I enjoy answering questions with my pint sized info I have for Linux. It's really nice to get your burner working isn't it? Oh yeah! (That oh yeah is the oh yeah sound from the song from Ferris Buehler's Day off )

Cool
