No, I wasn't complaining about the Ricoh drive, I just thought that the info on that drive was strange.

So, I will try out the code you gave me and I guess I'll put in 10 for the speed=x part.

I'll let you know how it went.

Modern drives go up to x52 and x48 is really common...

<edit 2008/01/08> Those values are for CDs.

I just tried that command 2 different ways, both as a user and as root.

cdrecord: Asuming -tao mode.

Darn.

Anyway, shouldn't it have been "dev=ATA:1,1,0"? Negative bus / target / lun don't really make sense...

cdrecord: If you need DVD+R/DVD+RW support, ask the Author for cdrecord-ProDVD.

cdrecord: Sorry, no CD/DVD-Recorder or unsupported CD/DVD-Recorder found on this target.
Using generic SCSI-3/mmc CD-ROM driver (mmc_cd).

That's annoying. Why was I never told about this?!! I hope that it is available as an .rpm if it is a complex thing to install.

Uargh. That is an effect of Jörg Schilling's war .

It is also what I meant in my earlier post about the necessary programs in the configuration tab ob K3b -- there are other possibilities to write DVDs, but since I have no DVD device I don't know which ones you need .

Try a run with a CD, not DVD and leave out the blank option. Maybe that works at least

Good luck.

Writing to CD does work nicely. I have made several of those.

CDs with the "blank" option?

Anyhow, you might also wish to check on the driver in K3b, for me (CDs only) it is "generic mmc" somewhere in your posts with the output from cdrecord I read "mmc2". Check that it is activated in the appropriate tab.

Btw, I bought a new drive yesterday evening (Philips SPD 6005BD). I'll reconfigure my box and install SuSE 10.3 (when I find the time ). I'll know more after that...

How do you do that?

I did not see a tab regarding this, where is it?

I do not know about the CD's with the "blank" option, I never had to mess with that.

You should 'man cdrecord' to get a better understanding of the command.

Quote:
excerpt from the 'man cdrecord'

blank=type
Blank a CD-RW and exit or blank a CD-RW before writing. The
blanking type may be one of:

help- Display a list of possible blanking types.

all- Blank the entire disk. This may take a long time.

fast- Minimally blank the disk. This results in erasing
the PMA, the TOC and the pregap.

track- Blank a track.

unreserve- Unreserve a reserved track.

trtail- Blank the tail of a track.

unclose- Unclose last session.

session- Blank the last session.

Not all drives support all blanking types. It may be necessary to use blank=all if a drive reports a specified command as being invalid. If used together with the -force flag, this option may be used to blank CD-RW disks that otherwise cannot be blanked. Note that you may need to specify blank=all because some drives will not continue with certain types of bad CD-RW disks. Note also that cdrecord does it's best if the -force flag is used but it finally depends on the drive's firmware whether the blanking operation will succeed or not.

Have you tried running k3bsetup. You can also run it from the settings menu from within k3b.

In the settings menu entry as Boow pointed out already.

It (and the need for it on CDs) is described in links I posted. Example:

I think I finally found a reference to drivers. I had to click on the word, "auto" from the cdrdao entry in order to see the drop down menu.

Anyway, cdrdao is set to "auto" and this is the list of drivers to choose from:
plextor
plextor-scan
cdd2600
generic-mmc
generic-mmc-raw
ricoh-mp6200
sony-cdu920
sony-cdu948
taiyo-yuden
teac-cdr55
toshiba
yamaha-cdr10x

Which one of these would be compatible with my Sony DVD+RW DRU 120A?

generic-mmc-raw and generic-mmc should work with most drives.
