can't burn CDs


I've a question that needs an expert opinion. I can't get my combo drive to work. It's a LG CD-RW and DVD player. Once, about two years ago, I ran DVDs on it (just to check whether it worked or not) and all was fine. But since then, I've never used it again to play DVDs.

I'm running Slackware 10.2, kernel-2.6.14 and KDE-3.4.

The entry on my /etc/fstab, regarding the cd-rom, reads:

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 auto,user,rw 0 0

The hardware works. I can read CDs with it, but I can't burn and I already burn CDs with it.

Anyway the read DVD function of my hardware doesn't works for a while now, possibly due to some firmware problem.

Information of this device in dmesg:
Code:
hdc: HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4480B, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
Code:
hdc: ATAPI 40X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
Code:
hdc: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdc: command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }
Anyone has any idea as to how I can solve this?

Thanks in advance,

Gustavo

There are some packages you need to install to play dvd's. Head on over vlc and/or mplayer website for more info.

Then you'll need to make sure you have downloaded growisofs, mkisofs, cdrecord, cdda2wav. Here are some instructions and what's needed:

cuiq,

I guess the problem has something to do with my kernel's configuration. Why I say this? Because of:
Code:
cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2004 Jörg Schilling
cdrecord: Warning: Running on Linux-2.6.14

cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.

root@MCLAREN:/dev#
Then I did:
Code:
root@MCLAREN:/dev# ls -la cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 4 2005-11-18 12:55 cdrom -> scd0
And, in the top part of /etc/lilo.conf, I have
Code:
append = "hdc=ide-scsi"
I tried also this
Code:
root@MCLAREN:/dev# modprobe ide-scsi
FATAL: Module ide_scsi not found.
Another thing that made me certain it's not hardware problem is that I's just installed my brother's DVD-RAM drive and it presents the same symptoms.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Gustavo

What I posted previously is the software you need installed so you can burn.

Please post your /etc/fstab file and your /etc/lilo.conf file

Have you tried removing append = "hdc=ide-scsi" and burning directly to /dev/hdc

Since you say you use 2.6 kernel, then you don't need the ide-scsi emulation.

Do the following:

1) Remove the ide-scsi append line from lilo.conf (and rerun lilo ofcourse)

2) Make the right symlink for cdrom
Code:
ln -sf /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom
3) use the ATA subsystem from cdrecord
to see which device it is use the following
Code:
cdrecord -scanbus dev=ATA
the device number you get you use it with ATA
e.g cdrecord -various_options dev=ATA:2,0,0 file.iso
replace 2,0,0 with yours.

can't burn CDs

hi!
using 2.6.14 patched to 2.6.14.2 on a FC3; hardware is TOSHIBA ODD-DVD SD-R6372:

grub.conf:
title Fedora Core (2.6.14.2)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.14.2 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet acpi_sleep=s3_mode hdc=ide-cd
initrd /initrd-2.6.14.2.img

$ cdrecord -v speed=8 -dev=/dev/hdc -data /usr/tmp/cdiso2.iso

works fine.

I tried ide-scsi and :
modprobe scsi_mod, sg, sr_mod, loop, iso9660 befor in various combinations which droped just error messages
like kernel: ide-scsi is deprecated for cd burning! Use ide-cd and give dev=/dev/hdX as device.
