While I am able to write avi type files as .iso images I have been unable to
create any vcd type discs with dvd::rip on my Suse 9.2 box. This is the
output box.

Job 'Burn CD ' failed.

Executed command: rm
-f /home/NewUser/Ripping/unnamed/avi/003/unnamed_1.vcd.bin; ln
-s /home/NewUser/Ripping/unnamed/avi/003/unnamed_1.vcd /home/NewUser/Ripping/unnamed/avi/003/unnamed_1.vcd.bin
&& dr_exec cdrdao write --device ATA:0,1,0 --device 0,1,0 --speed 4 --driver

ERROR: Cannot open SCSI device '0,1,0': Cannot open '/dev/pg1'

Now, I have done a some research, as much as I can understand, and I realise
that this has something to do with my configuration of the writing device. I
am confused by the new way of addressing such devices in the 2.6 kernel that
I now have, the ATA: and ATAPI: devices.

cdrdao first:-

NewUser@linux:~> cdrdao scanbus --device ata:
Cdrdao version 1.1.9 - (C) Andreas Mueller <andreas@xxxxxxxx>
Using libscg version 'schily-0.8'

ATA:1,1,0 _NEC , DVD_RW ND-2500A , 1.06


NewUser@linux:~> cdrdao scanbus --device atapi:
Cdrdao version 1.1.9 - (C) Andreas Mueller <andreas@xxxxxxxx>
Using libscg version 'schily-0.8'

ATA:1,1,0 _NEC , DVD_RW ND-2500A , 1.06

regardless of what device type I call I get the ATA: device back, but with

NewUser@linux:~> cdrecord dev=ATAPI: -scanbus

I get different results, ATAPI:0,1,0 and ATA:1,1,0 . So which is the correct
one to configure in dvd::rip and how to configure them?

Currently I have :-

'cdrecord command' > cdrecord dev=ATAPI:0,1,0
'cdrdao command' > cdrdao write --device ATA:0,1,0

though I have tried other combinations with no success.

So, what is the secret?
