What name is the firewire/ieee1394 device?

I have Slack 9.1 upgraded to current with swaret and Dropline Gnome 2.6 (2.4.22 kernel).

I have a ieee1394 / firewire DVD-RAM/DVD+-R burner and I can't seem to find where the device is. When I try to add anything I could think up in k3b it just says that no devices were found.

lsmod seems to list everything that's needed and the system logs shows that when I disconnect teh device and reconnect it everything seems to be doing fine.

The only thing I really don't know here is if I need to do somethnig more so it can work and where is the darn thing.

Here's the lsmod

Depending on your distro it should be something alond the lines of /dev/srx or /dev/scdx where x can be 0 or higher depending on whether you have other cd drives in your system. Try 'cat /proc/scsi/scsi' to see if the scsi subsystem found the drive...

mhh ... cat give me "Attached devices: none"

I guess that would be a problem ...

I'll try manually with sr and scd and see if that could work.

EDIT : Well, both didn't work...

Oops... then the system doesn't recognise the IEEE1394 as being a DVD drive... That's strange because sbp2 is the HD/DVD driver for FireWire -- and it is loaded in your system...
To be honest I don't know that much about FireWire on Linux... Maybe better to wait for some other reactions...

Anyway, the drive has to show up in /proc/scsi/scsi before we can even begin to use the /dev/scd... devices and the DVD burning software
