cdburner not working right


I tried searching for similar posts but came up null.

I moved my CDRW from /dev/hdd to /dev/hdb. Also, to add insult to injury, I tried to put in a SCSI card (wrong type for my drives) and now I get this error:

# cdrecord -scanbus

I am way lost. It comes up, but doesn't burn at all. It also has problems reading. Any thoughts?

When you moved it, did you change your append line for the scsi emulation to the new location?

Cool

That's just it. Redhat did it on it's own (redhat8). So, in theory, it should work right?

Did what on it's own, modified your boot loader conf file? If, the append line is correct, then yes, in theory, it should work. However, you may have not re-installed (if lilo), or possibly a syntax error.

Cool

To: dfctve_end_user and any others looking to burn with an IDE burner.

So... you put in a scsi card, because your ide burner wasn't working?

Is your kernel configuration set up right? I've found this to be the cause of a heck of a lot of burner issues.

Here it comes in quick and easy format (this is basically taken from my die-hard, 'get-ide-burners-to-work' plan, and it hasn't failed me since i came up with it):
Code:
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDESCSI: M
(or for make menuconfig with a stock 2.4.20 kernel, it's
ATA/IDE/MFM/RLL support  --->
IDE, ATA and ATAPI Block devices  --->
<M>   SCSI emulation support)

CONFIG_SCSI: M
(SCSI support  --->
<M> SCSI support)

CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SR: M
(SCSI support  --->
<M>   SCSI CD-ROM support

CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SR: Y
(SCSI support  --->[*]     Enable vendor-specific extensions (for SCSI CDROM))

CONFIG_SR_EXTRA_DEVS: 2 (any number, default is 2)
(SCSI support  --->
(2) Maximum number of CDROM devices that can be loaded as modules)

CONFIG_CHR_DEV_SG: M
(SCSI support  --->
<M>   SCSI generic support)
The rest of the scsi options from there on down seem pretty optional. You don't need low-level driver pickings (unless you want to use that scsi card for something else), and you certainly don't need a SCSI card for an IDE burner to work. Of course you need to edit the modules file to reflect this after compiling, and your append line you said gets automatically updated, so you don't need to worry about that, even though, if it were me, I'd double-check it.

And I've found the easiest, yet GUI, thing to burn with, is CDBakeOven. (http://cdbakeoven.sourceforge.net/)
The latest version has a setup wizard that makes sure you have everything set correctly, and changes what needs changing (such as /etc/fstab, which it found on mine).

Anyway, I hope my die-hard plan works for you.
