cd burner configuration problems.


I have just installed k3b and it gave me this warning...


cdrdao 1.1.7 does not support ATAPI
The configured version of cdrdao does not support writing to ATAPI devices without SCSI emulation and there is at least one writer in your system not configured to use SCSI emulation.
Solution: The best and recommended solution is to enable ide-scsi (SCSI emulation) for all writer devices. This way you won't have any problems. Or you install (or select as the default) a more recent version of cdrdao.

Could someone please tell me how to enable ide-scsi for all writer devices, if possible.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

It's an option when compiling a new kernel.

As for the problem I'm guessing you are using the 2.4.26 kernel and not the latest spiffy kernel? You might want to consider compiling a new kernel (I know to solve your problem I'm telling you to create a whole lot more for yourself but once ur done everything will run smoothly).

I've gotten past that, by installing a new cdrdao.

Once I get to the burning part of k3b, it gives me an error, saying...

Found media: No Media.

Please insert an empty medium into drive.

and when I do that, it still doesn't see the blank disk, so I tried mounting it and it said...

mount: block device /dev/hdb is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: No medium found

(I added the bolds to show what I want pointed out.)

Any help would be great.

All you really need to do for scsi emulation is add this line to the end of the linux section of the /etc/lilo.conf file:
Code:
append="hdX=ide-scsi"
Where the X is the letter of the cd burner.

I've done that...still no go.

It's not recognising the blank disk, but it reads normal disks without problems.

Did you try the scsi emulation before installing the new cdrdao?

I think I did, the append=hdb=ide-scsi was already in my lilo conf, but I had changed it from uppercase HDB to lowercase hdb.

Nothing changed.

But in any case, it's there, and was there before I did the upgrade on cdrdao. (If casing doesn't matter)

You also need to rerun lilo after making changes to your lilo.conf:
/sbin/lilo
If that doesn't help, run:
cdrecord -scanbus
Your burner must be listed in the output on one of the scsi buses for it to work in scsi emulation.

Well, it looks like your ide-scsi module is not loaded at all. Try:
lsmod | grep scsi
it should return: ide-scsi number
If it does not, try:
/sbin/modprobe ide-scsi

Seems like your kernel is not aware that you're trying to run scsi emulation with your cdrw.
Your ide-scsi module gets loaded, probably from /etc/rc.d/rc.modules but does not see your drive. How exactly are you booting the machine ? With Lilo or from floppy/cd ? Is this a stock kernel or have you built it yourself ?

It's a stock kernel.

I'm booting with lilo.

I had this same problem when I was a windows user, the cdrom won't recognise blank cd's...
