Re: burner disappears after update kernel



Sadly enough, dmesg says:

ide1: BM-DMA at 0xf008-0xf00f, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, hdd:DMA
hdd: _NEC DVD_RW ND-2500A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

but cdrecord tells:
scsidev: '/dev/hdd'
devname: '/dev/hdd'
scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
Warning: Open by 'devname' is unintentional and not supported.
cdrecord: No such device or address. Cannot open '/dev/hdd'. Cannot open SCSI driver.

Suggestions are more than welcome...

As shown by Anard's citation of FC2 releases notes, actually cdrecord
can be invoked this way:

cdrecord dev=/dev/hdd ....

That's the way my own backup BASH script invokes it everyday, and it
works. With FC 1, that script used the usual SCSI syntax (cdrecord
dev=0,1,0...), but when I installed FC 2, it stopped working, so, after
some hacking, it turned back to work using thie first syntax above.

But please note the lines in cdrecord's output about this naming
convention...

Best regards.
