No audio CD sound due to SCSI emulation ?


I'm wandering how is it possible to have paralell scsi emulated and "normal" ide drives. I read in the forum the some guys are using their drives this way. As I experienced in the kernel config having scsi emulation or "normal" ide is a matter of choice. I thought that I cannot have them together.
Someone wrote that he is having an scsi emulated cd burner and an ATA ide CD-ROM drive at the same time. How is that possible?

Another thing is the audio CD sound. Before I used scsi-emulation I cuold listening to audio CDs on my computer. Now I cannot. I hooked my CD drive with a cable to the sound card tried all the variations (where to plug it) still no sound. The cdplay program looks to play the CD and avery other CDplayer application but still no sound. Any hint on this?

Anyway I'm using Debian SID, kernel 2.6.5.

Thank you!

Scsi-emulation is a bit old now, with 2.6, you don't need it anymore to burn. However, you can have both "emulation" and "normal" drive included in your kernel, it shouldn't cause any problem...
All you have to do to use one or another is to add the correct option to your bootloader. As example, adding "hdc=ide-cd" to my lilo option tell the kernel my burner is a "normal" ATA drive, but giving "hdc=ide-scsi" says it is a "emulated scsi" drive.

About sound... well, I never had this problem, maybe there is a bug... right now I am using "ide-cd" and it is working all fine... Back in 2.4 time I was using "ide-scsi" and it wasn't a problem either.
