Hi there again guys...
Here i am again to solve another step in this great distro...
The thing is that i cannot acess to mi cdrw inside slack.
I chose the ide-scsi thing during the installation, bot i´m only able to use mi DVDRom as a cd reader...
What can i doo to solve this problem.
Mi CDRW is in hdc and the dvd is in hdd, i already try to edit the fstab putting there anothe line with the hdc...
Here is mi fstab without edditing the line for the CDRW:
Best cd burning software, hands down, without a doubt:
Ok, so that's pretty much the standard, but hey, this is Slackware isn't it, we do set the standard don't we
Can you post up your dmesg so we can see what your drives look like, and maybe if you wanna tell us, how are your drives setup (Primary, Secondary, Master/Slave) and which one do YOU want to be your primary cdrom device (as a reader)?
Thanks for repliyng.
Here it how mi drives lock like:
-Primary channel, as master: 80GB Maxtor UDMA133
-Primary channel, as slave: 40GB Maxtor UDMA133
-Secondary channel, as master: Plextor 24/10/40A
-Secondary channel as slave: LG DVD Rom
The only file with the name of dmesg, that i have it in the bin folder and if i open it with KWrite, it cant be read...
Is there any program, or command line that i can use?
Can you tell me who it donne?

You only have your DVD in /etc/fstab. I have a CD-RW and a DVD too, only mine are the other way round (hdc is DVD, hdd is cdrw), However, if you set it up this way, I think it should work. Firstly, make sure the line in /etc/lilo.conf is:
Then delete your existing /dev/cdrom. We need to link /dev/cdrom to a SCSI device, as thats how we get the recording functionality. It should be /dev/sr0, so use
ln -s /dev/sr0 /dev/cdrom
Make a link for your dvd too:
ln -s /dev/hdd /dev/dvd
and make a directory for it in /mnt
Now go into /etc/fstab and add the line
/dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
and change this
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0 to
/dev/hdd /mnt/dvd iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0 to
(if you want to have user permission to the driver, put users rather than owner).
You can check it has all worked by typing
and you should see your cdrw listed. You may need to reboot, but try the command anyway. Hope this helps,
HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO man are you good or what....
