I'm trying to install a new plextor cd burner (Plexwriter 16/10/40A CD-RW) on
my SuSE 8.0 system. I've followed the instructions in the support database
but haven't had success. The instructions - briefly outlined - are:
Switch off IDE support by changing the LILO configuration - add
hda=ide-scsi to the append option of the boot loader (hda is the correct drive
for my cd)
Load the scsi emulation by adding this line:
to the /etc/init.d/boot.local file.
Correct settings for all IDE CD drives:
ln -sf /dev/scd0 /dev/cdrecorder
I've also tried:
ln -sf /dev/sr0 /dev/cdrecorder
per suggestion from suse support
Add this line to fstab:
/dev/cdrecord /media/cdrecorder auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
Reboot and the thing should work but when I run
this is all I get:
Cdrecord 1.11a13 (i686-suse-linux) Copyright (C) 1995-2001 Jörg Schilling

which lists my real scsi drive (just the iomega) that are on my scsi adapter -
nothing about the ide cd-rw.
Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.
