Strange problem. Tried for the first time on the new system to burn a cd. Thought I'd try a GUI tool first (rather than trying to remember cdrecord and all that). Fired up GnomeBaker from KDE menu. (I use KDE in my personal account, and Gnome in my root account). It saw my sony cd/dvd burner, on the scsi equivalent port. (I remember the old days when cd player/burners alwasy went through a scsi interface, even if they were IDE drives). My drive is an IDE drive. When I tried to burn it just stopped operating, and I had to kill it. After a couple of tries I tried the command line commands, and got a lot of strange error messages.
I used the scsi dev reference (scd0). No good. I then tried using a reference to /dev/cdrom, and it worked ! But /dev/cdrom is just a pointer to /dev/scd0 ? So why the failures ?
So 1st problem is GnomeBaker is trying to use the scsi ref. Can I change it to the /dev/cdrom or I guess /dev/cdrw might work as well,,, must check.
Any advice on these confusion issues ?
