My limited...very limited understand of how this is suppose to work is
that once an ide cdrom drive is emulated as scsi..you should not access

once it is emulated. AFAIK kudzu is doing it all wrong for the cdwriters
It should be making one symlink to /dev/scd#.

Nope, sorry. Youy access the *CD* as /dev/scdXXX, you access the
burner to write as /dev/sgXXX.


I'm glad that I saved the symlink to /dev/cdwriter then. It was linked to /dev/sd0 - I guessed that it was made by some program for writing. I left it alone.

I can't understand how my cdrw gets identified by /dev/hdd, through kudzu though. The output to kdzu claims my device as the below device. If I remove kudzu from my /etc/fstab file, a new entry will appear with a new symlink when the computer is rebooted.

Anyway, I added /dev/cdrom1 (symlinked to /dev/scd0) and left the other entry /dev/cdrom2 (symlinked to /dev/hdd) alone.

Whenever I insert a disc into the drive, it is opened as /dev/cdrom1. I plan on inserting a blank CDR into the drive and see what happens later.

confused, but happy it works now.


class: CDROM
bus: SCSI
detached: 0
device: scd0
driver: ignore
desc: "Atapi CD-R/RW 12X8X32"
host: 1
id: 0
channel: 0

Nothing will dispel enthusiasm like a small admission fee.
