I would appreciate some advice in my mighty battle against the cdu535
cdrom driver. The driver fails when you attempt to mount the drive or
read data from it. Here's the error message I get:
Sony CDU-535 read_result_reg: TIME OUT!
Sony CDU-535 debug: calling spinup when reading data!
I can make it give me this error either by calling mount or dd
The driver appears to load correctly, either as a module or built into
the kernel- finds the hardware address & initializes okay. Furthermore,
I can read audio cds through the drive using xplaycd. To add to the
confusion, I installed redhat5.2 using the same cd drive. I know it's
not a hardware problem or a hardware conflict. The only thing that
appears to be causing a problem is the driver itself. I'm not sure what
to change in order to make this work. Ideas, anybody?
