Hello there,

I have the same problem but results are different at my side.
After I installed SuSE 9.0 Pro, everything worked fine: cdrecord, kooka,
digital camera, etc... then suddenly things stopped working one by one. In
some cases, I still could use them as root (i.e.: cdrecord) but now not
even root can do much with those devices/utils...

I did the "resmgr login <username> :0" and it returned a "sucess" - but
cdrecord still doesn't work for neither my user (martin) nor root ... :-/

As root I issued a 'cdrecord -scanbus' and got all this crap on


Which is quite weird, as I haven't messed up with the modules or the
CDRW-device itself... yet.

Information on this will be much appreciated!

Try "cdrecord dev=ATAPI: -scanbus"

That's what I need to do to get it to work without ide-scsi

I tried your suggestion as root and... oops! more weirdness...

See pasted text:

There was a problem with 2.6.x kernels which has been resolved. There was quite a bit of vitriol on the kernel mailing list about this some time ago, looks like Jorg relented and later versions work. Grab the latest from, "tar jxfv cdrtools-2.01a26.tar.bz2", "cd cdrtools-2.01", "Gmake", Gmake INS_BASE=/usr install" and enjoy.
