SCSI Emulation????

Hi all!!!

I am trying to record a data cd but xcdroast is not cooperating very well. When I click "Master and Write on the Fly" I get this message:

Checking drive for a medium. Using scsi emulation would speed this up considerably.

... and after that it crashes. I tried running it as root, it starts up scanning for devices and again crashes. I havent used it for a while but I am pretty sure I have scsi emulation enabled :

[root@privilege root]# lsmod | grep scsi

scsi_mod 119697 1 sg

I am puzzled??

Thanks for any help!!! Happy holidays and HAPPY New YEAR to all!!

P.S. I am runnin FC2 - kde, with kernel-2.6.9-1.6_FC2 should be the latest.

When you boot kernel 2.6, what options do you use with grub/lilo?

Can you do a `cdrecord -scanbus` and show the output?

You should not have to use SCSI emulation under kernel 2.6. With cdrecord, you should be able to specify an IDE device, such as:
# cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc speed=8 -pad -data test.iso
