Re: [vox-tech] IDE cdrw/dvdrw


I don't know about the ide-cd module, but I use is the ide-scsi module. 
Then I specify in the kernel at LILO/grub prompt (or append in

dmesg follows:
hdX: attached ide-scsi driver.
scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
  Vendor: TDK       Model: DVDRW0404N        Rev: 1.08
  Type:   CD-ROM                             ANSI SCSI revision: 02

And using cdrecord -scanbus:
Linux sg driver version: 3.1.25
Using libscg version 'schily-0.8'.
        0,0,0     0) 'TDK     ' 'DVDRW0404N      ' '1.08' Removable

        0,6,0     6) *

cdrecord dev=0,0,0 speed=16 -v cdimage.iso
Hope some of that helps.
