Need some help here. Cross my heart and hope to die, when I first
installed this CD-RW device on my linux system and I piped mkisofs into
cdrecord, it worked and somewhere I have the disc to prove it. Of course
I can't remember the exact form of the cdrecord command I used but I'm
sure I copied it straight from the CD-Writing-Howto file. I'm sure I'm
doing the same thing again below, but now I get this type of error
*every time* I try to write anything. The device (0,0,0) is correct, as
the light flashes on the drive, and the hardware works because I can
write CD's without a problem under windoze. You'll notice that the
command below tries to write in dummy more, doesn't try to fixate the
disc, and is only writing at speed=1, so I'm not exactly asking a lot
here! Now it is conceivable that when it worked before I only had the
one CD drive in the system and now I have both the CD reader and the new
CD-RW present, possibly* off the same ide bus, but (a) I'm not
trying to copy from one CD to the other, and (b) like I said, it works
Any clues anyone? Error messages are below, and "cdrecord -scanbus"
returns "0,0,0 0) 'CREATIVE' 'CD-RW RW1620E ' '0.20' Removable CD-ROM"
