K3b hardware error message...what does it mean?

I dont know how to enable 'ide-scsi' support for this device...anyone know how or a link ?
Not even sure what this error message (below) is telling me...please advise and thanks.

No support for ATAPI with cdrdao
You will not be able to use all your reading devices as copy sources since there is at least one not configured to use SCSI emulation and your system does not support ATAPI with cdrdao.
Solution: The best and recommended solution is to enable ide-scsi (SCSI emulation) for all writer devices. This way you won't have any problems.

edit /etc/grub.conf (I'm assuming Grub with RH9, that's their default) and add to the append line, just in there...


Now, one thing... hdc is a guess, look at /etc/fstab to see what your CDrom normally registers as, its going to change after this and register as a scsi cdrom so it'll now appear under /dev/scd0 (probably).

Having this same problem but with mandrake

I happen to be running mandrake on a machine (avid slack user but decided to try out some new distro's) and I ran into the same problem.

My setup has 1 cdrom and then my cdrw (cdrom@hdc, cdrw@hdd). Now I placed in my lilo.conf "append=hdd=ide-scsi" yet I still get that atapi cdrdao error (fstab shows that the cdrw is scd0). Also It doesn't seem to pick up my reg cdrom as a read device. So I can't burn on the fly. I tried to set up my other cdrom as a scsi device too but I don't know if that will do it or not.

the entry I put in lilo.conf is "append=hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"

when I rean lilo it didn't come back with any errors so Im grabbing for straws here, any help would be great.

Most likely you can't. cdrdao is a bit of a nasty program. After you get scsi emulation to work on it, then it might work, its really a matter of checking through its documentation. It worked for my real scsi cd-rw, never worked with my uber-generic ide cd-rw.
