Thread: LifeBoat config

    LifeBoat config

    Need help for LifeBoat config file .

    I am using USB cd writer. It is detected by my RH9.
    I didn't burn cds yet but I played cd...

    Do I have to change default in config file?

    The CDR_DEVICE is the scsi address of your CD-RW.
    The default is: CDR_DEVICE="0,0,0"

    If your CD-RW is on /dev/hdd and uses ide-scsi emulation then enter:
    The default is: IDESCSI="hdb=ide-scsi"

    Re:LifeBoat config

    for me, I have an USB 2.0 CD-RW that just works out of the box. I plug it in, and X CD Roast just sees it.

    What does (as root)

    cdrecord --scanbus
