Are you sure that's your device? cdrecord --scanbus to check. Haven't seen a 0,0,0 device before, but anythign's possible. You will also want to specify generic-mmc-raw mode when writing. I also have a LG drive.

The rest of the errors look like the data you are trying to write isn't there or isn't in the right format. I dunno, but do the previous stuff first when diagnosing.

The format medium is the CD-R/RW. Sounds like a problem with the CD disk. Do you get the same error message when trying to burn on to other disks?

You maybe trying to access the wrong device.

Have you set up your /etc/cdrecord/cdrecord file something like this
(obviously using the correct values for your drive).

#*****************************************************************************#
#
# file : /etc/cdrecord/cdrecord
#
#*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*#
#
CDR_DEVICE="HP CD-Writer+ 8200"
#
CDR_SPEED=4
#
CDR_FIFOSIZE=2m
#
#.............................................................................#
#
# drive name device speed fifosize driveropts
#
"HP CD-Writer+ 8200"= 0,0,0 4 2m ""

I am pretty sure I am using the right media because Windows has no problems writing to it, and I have actually burned twice successfully from Linux before. (dont know what I did differently, same command). Using -scanbus, the device number is correct, and blanking a CDRW always worked. This is a resent error I got trying to burn. If it helps, the burner is a primary slave and there is a secondary slave cd drive attached.

Here is the output of -scanbus. The device is now 1,0,0 after I connected a USB card reader, still no luck burnin with dev=1,0,0 though.
As far as the /etc/cdrecord.conf file, for some reason its comming up as a YAMAHA drive which is weird. Could it be using the same modules??

I have 2 machines one with a Yamaha CRW-F1E with the 2@tattoo and I also have a sony CRX215E5 drive and I have tried X-CD-Roast, KonCD and GNOME Toaster and I get the same stuff as listed in the top message.
I have tried TDK 2X/4X and I then tried memorex 700mb 80min multi speed cdrw media that goes up to 12X. guess what no go. I then went and found as many web pages and wrote a letter to a person of one of them about this.
Now one thing I will also note that when I used GNOME TOASTER it popped up a web page to check for drivers. cdrado.sourceforge.net/drivers do a search on this as its an HTML page thing. Keep you posted.

Can you succeed using the command line?

# CD burning info
Is it configured and what is the device? Command this to find out:

When I run the cdrecord --scanbus it comes up just like it should in my redhat book as scsibus 0,0,0 Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-105 1.21 removable CD-ROM
the next one 0,1,0 1)Yamaha CRW-F1E 1.0c Removable CD-ROM.
What I'm trying to do is learn this O/S from both the command prompt and the GUI. I did blank the CDRW in windows XP on the Yamaha with no problem and put a jpg image on it and then pull it up just fine in REDHAT 8.0 but for trying to get it to blank the CDRW not. It comes up with -tfs bad block something iso9660 ,kudzu,noauto. I haven't tried the command line yet. But I might just do it again for aggervation and post the info that it spits out after it finishes.

Be in touch.

I have also tried GTOASTER and recieved the exact same error message I did when using command line. This led me to believe that GTOASTER is jsut a graphical interface of CDRECORD and not a different program.

How do you mean "its coming up as" ?

Why have you not edited this file and put in the appropriate values for your drived, as suggested in an earlier posting?

Well I did now, without better results... as I understand it (i could be wrong) it will only read from that file as long as i dont specify a device in the cdrecord command line, which I did.

I think it is safe to assume that you do not have an SMP system,
and that if you did have an SMP system you were not booting it with
an SMP kernel.

So the question that needs to be asked, are you booting a kernel
with APIC support (either compiled in or as a module)?

Corin: me being a newb, I have absolutely no Idea what SMP or APIC means. I didnt even compile the kernel myself, Just installed Red Hat and it detected the drive and did all the SCSI emulation.
