CDRW+DVD combo drive problem


Hi all,

I have problem with my QSI CDRW/DVD combo drive on kernel 2.6.11.9. It's recognized as CDROM only and I can't burn any cd's with k3b or cdrecord. The "# cdrecord -scanbus" command findes the drive on the scsi bus (scsi0) and it's reported as CDRW/DVD drive and the device is /dev/scd0 with 666 permitions.
When I boot in the old 2.6.6 kernel everithing works fine and I can't figure why because I can't find any differences in the drive configurations (it is the same config in the both kernels). Both kernels have SCSI emulation of IDE ATAPI drives enabled and all messages for the drive on booting (in dmesg) are the same.

This is what I get when I try co burn cd's:

Any ideas?

Scsi emulation is old and not recommended to burn with 2.6 kernel... you better use ide-cd instead.
Do you have a line like "hdX=ide-cd" in your boot option of your boot loader? That would tell the kernel hdX (hda, hdb, hdc...) is actually an ATAPI burner.

Re:

Hi,

First I would like to thank you for replaying. I have "hdc=scsi" in the lilo.conf file for the cdrw/dvd device. I may try your suggestion to see how it will work without scsi emulation. But I'm very confused because in the old kernel 2.6.6 everything was working fine.

As far as I know, you only need to append hdc=ide-scsi to lilo.conf if you're using a 2.4 kernel. 2.6 versions don't require it, and it's probably causing problems to have it there.
