First off please don't top post. Your problem is a limitation of your
linux knowledge. No worries, we can rectify some of that. On my system
with a DVD/CD-ROM and CD burner, I have my DVD/CD-ROM on /dev/hdc and
the burner on /dev/scd0. That's cause linux uses SCSI emulation to burn
stuff. My soundcard also allows for two sound cables to be used and I do.
So switch the drives around and you should be fine. Any problems, report
