Ricoh MP7040A CD-R/RW problems

Ricoh MP7040A CD-R/RW problems

Post by Cameron Hutchiso » Tue, 04 May 1999 04:00:00

I have a Ricoh MP7040A cd writer that I am trying to make write a CD-RW
disk. It is an IDE drive, so I'm using the ide-scsi emulation on linux
2.2.6 so that I can use cdrecord (1.6 and 1.8a) to write a disk.

I believe the MP7040A is a rather new drive hence is not on the list of
CD writers that work, but it is also not on the list of CD writers that
dont work.

My problem is that it just doesn't work. I have tried writing both data
and audio, both fail in the same way. I'm hoping that someone can help
decode the following output and perhaps shed some light on my problem.

The failure message is:

Executing 'read track info' command on Bus 0 Target 0, Lun 0 timeout 240s

Sense Code: 0x24 Qual 0x00 (invalid field in cdb) Fru 0x0
Sense flags: Blk 0 (not valid)
cmd finished after 0.004s timeout 240s

This occurs after the 10 second pause (last chance to abort).

Can anyone point me to an online resource that contains the format of
these writing commands (0x52 in this case)?

Hi everybody

I will buy a new PC to get rid of M$ (my old one is too slow and the
disk too
I would like to install the new drive of Ricoh MP7060, which can deal
with all
known disks. But it's not in SuSe's list of supported HW. Did anybody
tried it?
Ricoh's support told me that no special driver is required. Is this

Thanks a lot
