Hi friends, I'm trying to configure my dvdreader and dvdrw with a SATA disk. I try configuring disk as SATA, and all's ok. But I don't have any reader, there only appears:
ata1: SATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0x1F0 ctl 0x3F6 bmdma 0xF000 irq 14
ata1: dev 0 cfg 49:2f00 82:346b 83:7d01 84:4003 85:3469 86:3c01 87:4003 88:207f

I suppose ata2 are both readers, but I can't use, these aren't registered, I don't have any /dev/sr0 , /dev/scd0 or /dev/hdc . I repeat, I don't have, scsi emulation, scsi generic support or scsi cdrom support, only SATA and IDE/ATAPI Cdrom.
I think kernel is trying to use readers as SATA devices, I don't understand.
