/dev/hdc is my RW drive ... unless you have one, and it is detected and works properly, of course the command won't work.

H_TeXMeX_H,

I got slamd64-11.0 burned running a LiveCD. I spent only about 20 minutes to get the job done, including installing a CD-Writer to start the Live CD. After mounting the DVD I can read its content. Hoping that it can work to install slamd64-11.0. I'll erase the 32bit Slackware-11.0.

Even running the LiveCD "cdrecord -scanbus" still can't find the DVD and CD writers. This is quite strange to me. I connect them detected by cable, i.e CS (cable select). Would it matter? Tks.

typically if disks are detected (this may only happen with udev), the disks will be shown in '/dev/disk/by-id'. So run:

Code:
ls -l /dev/disk/by-id
You can also check /proc/ide or /proc/scsi (depending on how it is connected) as root (regular users cannot read most files from here) for info on connected things.

I don't think so, this suggest to me that /dev/hdb is your DVD writer. Typically, hda is master, hdb is slave ... kinda weird that they are CD and DVD writers instead of the the usual hard drives, but anyway:

So try:

Code:
cat /proc/ide/hdb/model
That should give you the NEC DVD RW

then burn using /dev/hdb as the RW drive.
