I have the following 2 CDROM drives installed in my system:


product: E-IDE CD-ROM CR-852E
physical id: 0
bus info: ide@1.0
logical name: /dev/hdc
capabilities: packet
product: PCRW804
physical id: 1
bus info: ide@1.1
logical name: /dev/hdd
capacity: 1023GB

When I start K3B, I get the following warning/error:


No support for ATAPI with cdrdao
You will not be able to use all your reading devices as copy sources since there is at least one not configured to use SCSI emulation and your system does not support ATAPI with cdrdao.
Solution: The best and recommended solution is to enable ide-scsi (SCSI emulation) for all devices. This way you won't have any problems.

Question: How do I enable SCSI emulation for all devices?

Edit /etc/grub.conf

hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi

to the "kernel vmlinuz...." line


Then your drives will be using scsi emulation. Their device names will be /dev/scd0 & /dev/scd1

cdrecord -scanbus

will give you info...

Thanks a lot.
