Acer 650-P 50x CD-ROM (IDE) -- compatibility?

Post by Conrad Sabati » Sat, 04 Dec 1999 04:00:00



Was browsing in CompUSA today, saw this drive.  Looked like a
good buy at about $60.  I'm just wondering how well it will
work with FreeBSD, particularly for audio CDs (playing, ripping,
etc.).  My current drive is *(doesn't respond to commands to
skip ahead/back a track, for instance, and is utterly useless for
ripping MP3s), and I've been putting off replacing it long enough,
but I don't want to end up in the same boat with a new drive.

Any info, opinions much appreciated.  Thanks.

1. ACER 50X CD-ROM

Hi all-  I recently installed an Acer 50X CD-ROM on my win/linux RH6.1
box, and the Linux part can no longer do anything with it.  If I try to
mount it, i get an error message saying "mount: /dev/cdrom had the wrong
major or minor number."  I am pretty new to linux and I don't have any
idea what this means.  it also gives me some errors during startup:

hdc: packet command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdc: packet command error: error=0x54
ATAPI device hdc:
  Error: Illegal request -- (Sense key=0x05)
  Parameter list length error -- (asc=0x1a, ascq=0x00)
  The failed "Mode Sense" packet command was:
  "5a 00 2a 00 00 00 00 00 18 00 00 00 "
hdc: packet command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdc: packet command error: error=0x54
ATAPI device hdc:
  Error: Illegal request -- (Sense key=0x05)
  Parameter list length error -- (asc=0x1a, ascq=0x00)
  The failed "Mode Sense" packet command was:
  "5a 00 2a 00 00 00 00 00 18 00 00 00 "
hdc: packet command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdc: packet command error: error=0x54
ATAPI device hdc:
  Error: Illegal request -- (Sense key=0x05)
  Parameter list length error -- (asc=0x1a, ascq=0x00)
  The failed "Mode Sense" packet command was:
  "5a 00 2a 00 00 00 00 00 18 00 00 00 "

Now, I don't know what this means either...if anybody has any
suggestions on how to get this working it would be greatly appreciated.

I'm running Redhat 6.1 with kernel 2.2.13 on a Gateway G5-233 PI-233

Thanks,
