CDROM Sony CDU-55E occasional hangup???

Post by Peter Teub » Wed, 21 Jun 1995 04:00:00



Hi,

   I just hooked up a Sony CDU-55E CDROM up. This is the IDE/Atapi,
and it worked like a charm. Installation worked fine in DOS also,
but then I quickly moved to Linux, where I used it as slave
on my ASUS on-board IDE controller. It worked fine, both data and
sound, initially, but then I started doing some rigorous copying
(as test/benchmark) and usually the controller simply runs into
a timeout and from there on the orange light is on (which also
disables the manual eject button).

I found no other way than reboot the machine as to getting the
CDROM back.

Setup: ASUS 3G... motherboard, 486dx2-66, 16Mb, populated with 1 SCSI
and 2 IDE drives (both as master on their own IDE card). Linux 1.3.0

I also tried removing the second IDE, and put the CDROM as master on the
second IDE card. Same problem. Haven't tried the IDE card that
came with the system (Sun Moon).

Finally, I also tried it with a somewhat older kernel, 1.2.3 (I'm running
1.3.0), but that one immediately locked up when I tried to change
directory into /cdrom !!! So, I/m suspicious this driver is still
in development. Has anybody been able to get this CDROM or
similar IDE/Atapi up and running for extended periods of time?

1. Sony CDU-55E - Need boot disk image to load linux from cdrom

Hello there,

I just bought a Sony CDU-55E drive, and I have Linux on CD.
I want to load linux on my hard drive from the cd, and I don't
have a boot image to support the CDU-55E drive.  All I have are
the drivers for the Sony CDU31A/33A and CDU-535/531 drives, which
don't support the 55E.

Is there a way that I can load linux from the cd??
Any drivers available for the 55E??
Any help is appreciated as soon as possible.
Thank you very much.

Respond via email if possible.
