Unable to burn cd with cdrecord
I'm using Schilly's cdrecord. I'm unable to burn cds with cdrecord. The scanbus details are as follows:Code:

It's possible that your drive is bottling out because it is using the maximum speed of the drive, this is a fault of the drive itself and not the software. If this is the case you can try providing speed= to cdrecord in order to set the speed; If you have a 48x drive try 40x (which would be speed=40), and so forth.
Thanks for the reply. Just came to update...
One of the good guys over net suggested that I try /dev/sr0 or /dev/sr1 (as the case may be). I don't know the logic but when I replaced ATA,x,x in the above command with /dev/sr0 it worked fine. So, technically my problem is solved.
But I still have a query. When I did 'dmesg | grep sr' I am getting the following output. It is either an error or something that needs attention. Can you make out what it is? What I need to do?
[saivin@SV-V1400 ~]$ dmesg | grep sr sda:<4>Driver 'sr' needs updating - please use bus_type methods sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/24x writer cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray sr 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0 sr 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 5 sr 0:0:0:0: [sr0] Result: hostbyte=0x00 driverbyte=0x08 sr 0:0:0:0: [sr0] Sense Key : 0x5 [current] sr 0:0:0:0: [sr0] ASC=0x21 ASCQ=0x0 end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 0 Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 0 sr 0:0:0:0: [sr0] Result: hostbyte=0x00 driverbyte=0x08 sr 0:0:0:0: [sr0] Sense Key : 0x5 [current] sr 0:0:0:0: [sr0] ASC=0x21 ASCQ=0x0 end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 0 Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 0
If your device is sr0 then that is the correct device to use, I can only surmise that your device is a SCSI CD-ROM and not an ATAPI one. Either that or you're using an old kernel from before the time we had to use ide-cd rather than ide-scsi. Personally, however, I don't remember my devices being given the device name sr* even back when I was using a 2.4 kernel. Maybe I just don't remember it well.
As for your error I'm afraid that it's suggestive of either a drive or medium failure. It could be as simple as a bad disc, or perhaps a bad cable, or at worst a bad drive. Check each one of them, and also try that speed tip that I gave you.

Just like the updates to the PATA code that make all IDE HDD's sdX instead of the previous hdX, all recorders are now /dev/srX.
Dmesg lists the output of /var/log/messages without time stamps. You need to look at the messages log and compare the timestamps with *what was going on* at the time the error occurred. If these errors happened in the past when your syntax for cdrecord was a problem, I wouldn't worry about it.
