Dvd / Cdrw


hello all,
i have a DVD-RW that burns cd too. My question is how do i set it up to burn dvd and cds? do i need to edit fstab file to give my drive read/write permission or is it already set up that way. My kernel is 2.4.24.

Also do i have to use scsi emulation? because my cd/dvd drive is in the /dev/sr0 node. when i mount my dvd/cd drive i always need to do mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom/

thanks,

djgerbavor3


sorry i'm newbie but willing to learn.

I have slack10 with stock kernel/pioneer108 dvd/cd rw

Here is my entry in fstab:
/dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0

Here's my entry in /etc/lilo.conf:
append="hdc=ide-scsi"

When I mount this drive, I write:
mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/dvd (or /mnt/cdrom - it doesn't matter)

Everything works.

If your cd-rom device is /dev/sr0, you are already using a scsi emulator.

No need to set the drive to have write permissions. That is taken care of by the software.

Using the 2.4 kernel you HAVE to use ide-scsi emulation, which is set by the append line in /etc/lilo.conf. However, as another posted noted, if your optical drive is assigned /dev/sr0 you are already using ide-scsi.

No just add the following to your /etc/fstab (using the editor of your choice):
/dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
This will allow any user to mount the drive, well actually you don't mount the drive you mount the filesystem on the cd IN the drive, by typing in mount /mnt/cdrom.

To burn cd's you can use the command line and cdrecord. Take a look at the manpage for cdrecord (man cdrecord) also you can type in cdrecord --help at the command prompt. Or you can install K3b, it's a lot like Nero or Easy CD Creator. SlackCare has a really good package collection for K3b including all the multimedia libs and such.

HTH,
MMYoung
