scsi emulation for ATAPI CDROMS

scsi emulation for ATAPI CDROMS

Post by Frank Hal » Sun, 24 Jan 1999 04:00:00

I am using scsi emulation so that I can get my (ATAPI) cd-writer to
work. I also have another cd drive that I use it on. When I go to mount
a cd for the first time it will tell me this.

  ide-scsi: The scsi wants to send us more data than expected -
discarding data
  Unable to identify CD-ROM format.

And it won't mount the first time. I have to umount and mount again to
get to my cd. Does anyone know why it does this? It works fine after it
does this, and it will only do it the first time you mount your cd, any
other time and it will mount fine.

1. Mounting CDROM under ATAPI-SCSI emulation

Just set everything up to do SCSI emulation for cdrecord. Boot messages
indicate that the drives are there, the /dev entries are there, and
burning a CD worked perfectly. I can't mount cd's, though. When I try

mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom

I get

mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/cdrom as a block device

Support is compiled into the kernel (2.2.17) and, as I said, cdrecord
burned a cd with no problems.

The burner is Master on the secondary ide chain with a normal cdrom
drive as slave on that chain. Both show up if I do a cat /proc/scsi/scsi

What am I doing wrong?
