Hello, I just upgraded my system from an old IDE CD-ROM to a UltraPlex
14/32 and a RICOH 6201S [I think that's the number] 6R2W CD-ReWriter.
The problem is that I can no longer see a CD-ROM. Can someone show a
fool what possible mistakes he might have made?

Plextor Ultra 14/32 CD-ROM at SCSI ID #3 [not clear which dev]
Ricoh 6201S CD ReWriter at SCSI ID #4 [not clear which dev]
Fujitsu 230 MB MO drive at SCSI ID #6 [/dev/sdc]

System: Red Hat 4.2 [afraid to touch 5.0] set up with the old
IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM in place of the newer CD drives.
Symptoms: Cannot read either CD drive. When trying to mount either
/dev/scd0 or /dev/scd1, get a not ready error saying that
either superblock is bad or drive is empty.
Other data: the system minus the motherboard has been in use continuously
since Jan 96, until the CD-ROM upgrade. Both the Ricoh and the
ultra Plex is detected at boot time as sr0 and sr1 [but not as
scd0 or scd1] ... A kernel was compiled with the SCSI CD-ROM and
Any comments, as well as helpful hints on how to get CD-writing going if
and when I fix this, will be welcome. E-mails tips welcome!
