i bought a memorex EIDE cdrw / dvdrw. the box didn't say ATAPI, neither
did the manual, but looking at dmesg, this drive registered with the
kerel as ATAPI.
i've never played around with IDE-SCSI CD writers before. all my
experience is with pure good ol' SCSI.
looking through the kernel config, i found a driver called ide-cd which
looks like what i want (can someone confirm this?).
i made the ide-cd module and insmoded it.
according to the cdrecord man page, i need to specify the SCSI device
name with the transport layer. the SCSI transport layer is default, so
instead of what i'm used to:
cdrecord -audio -v dev=0,5,0 *.wav
i now need to specify a transport layer:
cdrecord -audio -v dev=ATAPI:0,5,0 *.wav
this means i need to get a SCSI device number for my new ATAPI drive. i
and saw all my SCSI devices, but not the ATAPI CDRW / DVDRW.
for those of you with ATAPI CDRW's or DVDRW's: can you please run
"cdrecord -scanbus" and tell me if you see your device in the output?
