cdrecording in linux is only really supported for scsi devices. You can
use IDE devices by means of the ide-scsi module which allows IDE devices to
sort of masquerade as SCSI. Take a look at the cdrecording howto.
You will have a further problem though. You'll actually need to remove the
ide-cdrom.o module and load the
Then *both* DVD and CDRW are recognized as scsi devices. I think you'll
then mount the DVD under /dev/sdXX. You cannot have the ide-scsi module
for one and normal ide for the other. They have to both be one or other.
once the moduels are loaded
% cdrecord -scanbus
will list the devices it has recognized as scsi and give you the three
number device code eg 1,0,0. I generally would mount the cdrom and take
an ISO of it using mkisofs
% mkisofs -J -r -o cd.iso Some_Dir
and record with some thing like....
% cdrecord -v -eject speed=8 dev=0,1,0 cd.iso
Hope this is a) helpful and b) correct
