did ya read the PET?
I'm running Mandrake 8.1 (KDE) and have a plextor plexwriter 8/20 scsi burner on an adaptec 19160 scsi card. *I can mount and read cd's fine, but none of the burner software I have tried recognizes my burner. *I tried entering it manually into X-CDRoast, but no go. GCombust sees a device with scsi ID of:
Scsibus: 0 Target: 4 Lun: 0, but it doesnt work either.
When I click on "Check scsi settings" I get an error that says "cdrecord failed to recognize selected drive (Wrong scsi settings or no permission to device)"
did ya read the PET?
yeah, but it says it's for IDE CD writer's does it apply to scsi also?
Run cdrecord -scanbus at the commandline and post the output. Also post the outpu of lsmod
[root@Voyager thayne]# cdrecord -scanbus

Wow you sure have a lot of modules loaded.
Not sure. Seems you have two scsi drivers loaded. Though this shouldn't be a problem. Do you have a usbscsi controller, too? I'm almost positive that the adaptec 19160 controller is handled with the aic7xxx module. Try to remove the usbscsi modules and leave the aic7xxx ones. Then rerun the bus scan.
Yeah, the aic7xxx is the adaptec card. I have a USB HP 5300C scanner that doesnt work. I have read it uses scsi over usb so I'm sure thats what the other one is.
How do i remove a module?
i missed earlier that you ahd a SCSI device... opps!
