CDRW Problems


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 im 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:

/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda4 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hda2 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda1 /fat-c vfat defaults 1 0
/dev/hdb1 /fat-d vfat defaults 1 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

Can anyone help me triyng solve this so i can move on in slack???
Buy the way what software can i use with slack to burn cds, the best one for slack please...
Thanks.

Best cd burning software, hands down, without a doubt:
CDrecord

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)?

Cool

O.K.
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?
Again thanks.

Mi CDRW is in hdc and the dvd is in hdd,

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:

append="hdc=ide-scsi"

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

mkdir /mnt/dvd

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

to this

/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

cdrecord --scanbus

and you should see your cdrw listed. You may need to reboot, but try the command anyway. Hope this helps,

To burn frrom the command line, make an iso of the data first:-

mkisofs -J -o [iso name] [dirs to iso], i.e.

mkisofs -J -o /tmp/gallery.iso /home/user/gallery

You can use -r for a rock ridge compatible cd instead of -j for joliet, but joliet is friendlier to windows users.

then simply record using cdrecord

cdrecord speed=[speed] dev=[dev number from cdrecord --scanbus] [your iso] i,e.

cdrecord speed=4 dev=0,0,0 /tmp/gallery.iso

For 'backing up' your own music CDs, use cdparanoia to rip the tracks:

cdparanoia -wB (simply writes all tracks to wav format in the current directory)

then

cdrecord speed=4 dev=0,0,0 --audio track01.wav track02.wav, etc etc.
