Burning tools


I'm having problems with burning tools, they can't find my CD-RW Burner :S

CDRECORD
Code:
root@AliTriX:/home/dbzgt# cdrecord -scanbus                                                        
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
CDRDOA
Code:
root@AliTriX:/home/dbzgt# cdrdao scanbus
Cdrdao version 1.1.7 - (C) Andreas Mueller <andreas@daneb.de>
  SCSI interface library - (C) Joerg Schilling
  Paranoia DAE library - (C) Monty

Check http://cdrdao.sourceforge.net/drives.html#dt for current driver tables.
Can somebody explain to me?

Hi!
It looks like you don't have scsi simulation loaded. If your writer is IDE/ATAPI, you have to load the compatibility driver ide-scsi. Look for "ide-scsi" in the output of "lsmod"; if it isn't there, you can load it adding ' append="hdb=ide-scsi" ', if it's 'hdb'. For example, your "lilo.conf" should look like,
Code:
...
       image=/boot/zImage-2.2.14
         label=Linux
         read-only
         append="hdb=ide-scsi"
...
(don't forget you have to do "/sbin/lilo" after change "lilo.conf", if you want lilo sees the changes)

If I was you, I'd read the "CD-Writing-HOWTO", which is much clearer than me , and not too long.

Regards

Did you do "cdrecord -scanbus" as root?

PS the HOWTO is in http://tldp.org/

Are you using a stock-kernel that came with
slack or did you roll your own?

http://tldp.org/HOWTO/CD-Writing-HOWTO.html

If you do a
dmesg | less
/SCSI

Can you find anything like this?
Code:
hdc: attached ide-scsi driver. scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices   Vendor: HL-DT-ST  Model: DVD-ROM GDR8081N  Rev: 0012   Type:   CD-ROM                             ANSI SCSI revision: 02 Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0 sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 10x/24x cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.12
If the answer is no, you should try the lilo
append-statement that Y0jiMb0 suggested.


Cheers,
Tink

I did what you sayed, result:
Code:
dbzgt@AliTriX:~$ dmesg | grep SCSI
SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
Sounds good for me
And btw, I don't use LILO, I use GRUB..

I can't see anything about a device
actually being attached to it ... maybe
you should go with less rather than grep?
Or use grep with more context?

dmesg | grep -A 3 -B 3 SCSI

Can't blame that on me buddy ;)

And I didn't want to blame you :P
I just wanted to ask if GRUB has a possibility like that one

Yeah, just I've never seen that one before.

Sure does ...
In the line that points to your kernel attach
hdX=ide-scsi
where X is your burner.

I've been trying to set up my CD-burner in Slack 9.1 (kernel 2.4.22), and I'm in what appears to be exactly the same situation...I passed hdc=ide-scsi to the kernel in my loadlin script, and am getting all the same dmesg confirmations and errors. I, too, would appreciate any advice.

Thanks!

Hm, maybe somekind of bug in Slack? (with some types of CD-RW's..)

Btw, I have Creative Labs CD-RW
