View Full Version : FC4 Kernel errors with DVD or CD (2.6.17-1.2142_FC4)

9th September 2006, 05:05 AM
Anytime I put a CD or DVD into my mythtv 0.19 DVD drive, I start getting errors written to /var/log/messages.

Sep 3 16:48:08 localhost kernel: hda: packet command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }
Sep 3 16:48:08 localhost kernel: ide: failed opcode was: unknown
Sep 3 16:48:09 localhost kernel: hda: packet command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }

For a CD, these errors repeat 8 to 10 times and then stop. But, for a DVD they are continuous. My system boot loads the Uniform CD-ROM driver.

Probing IDE interface ide0...
hda: _NEC DVD_RW ND-3550A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hda: ATAPI 48X DVD-ROM DVD-R CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20

I have also tried a different DVD drive (and cable), but get the same errors. I have also tried messing around with the mount options in /etc/fstab to no avail.

I have scoured the forum archives and google. A couple of old goole hits, but none with problem resolution.
Can someone PLEASE (on my knees, begging) provide me some guidance with this?
