Hi,

I am attempting to install a Pioneer DVR-105 (CenDyne 105) packaged, but when running cdrecord -scanbus, I am only seeing my old cd-recorder. On bootup, the Pioneer is both detected by the BIOS and Linux when probing hardware.

Any suggestions as to how I can solve this problem?


Thanks.

Walter

Whichever distro you have probably only added a lilo append ide-scsi line for the first rw device it saw, or it didn't recognize that the dvr should be a scsi device too. What's your dvr /dev/ listing? /dev/hd? (best to look in /etc/fstab), also what does the append line from /etc/lilo.conf or /etc/grub.conf look like?

Cheers,

Finegan

Thanks,

I added a line to grub.conf as well as update the /etc/fstab.

hdc=ide-scsi
hdd=ide-scsi

I read on http://debianlinux.net/~jama/howto/c...ing_steps.html that I should change a few lines in the kernel configuration to CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDE=y and CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDECD=y. The other thing I read on a different site was to edit the /etc/modules.conf and put this line in:
alias scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi

After these steps, I was able to see the device when running cdrecord -scanbus. Also, I just burned a "cd-r" with the dvd burner, but failed to burn a dvd-r.

I have a dvd burner as secondary master and a cd burner as secondary slave. The drive is a Pioneer DVR-105 and the manpage says that they used an older Pioneer DVD burner and it worked fine.

The first error for burning the dvd is that the size of the file is too large. The file I am trying to burn is an iso image that is 4688 MB in size. The other error is that the dvd-burner does not respond to scsi commands. Here is the last part of the error.

dvdrecord: Input/output error. reserve track: scsi sendcmd: no error
CDB: 53 00 00 00 00 00 24 59 D0 00

dvdrecord: Cannot open new session.
dvdrecord: fifo had 64 puts and 0 gets.
dvdrecord: fifo was 0 times empty and 0 times full, min fill was 100%.


What can I do for drivers, or configuration files?

Thanks,
Walter

This is where I get a little lost, I don't have a DVD burner... seen a few of them, all at work, and attached to Macs... The only thing I can think is that your version of cdrecord is not mature enough to handle the DVR you have, what's the version? Also, what's the distro? Grub makes me thing RH 8.0

Cheers,

I am running RedHat 8.0 and the standard cdrecord and dvdrecord with the installation iso's. 1.10 maybe??

I just redid my Linux install yesterday, and I burned a DVD-RW. It automatically added those lines to GRUB, and I did not change any other configurations (/etc/modules.conf, /boot/config-2.4.18-18.8.0). Now, it took some time to burn 76 MB at 1X, and it fixatted the disc?? Also, the diameter that was filled with data was larger than that would normally be on a CD even. Was it possible that I burned the DVD in CD mode (with a wider laser)?
