    cdrecord -scanbus error

    root:/mnt/lin1/tmp# cdrecord -scanbus
    Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
    cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
    cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
    cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.

    hmm, any idea on how to fix this one?

    What kernel version are you running? Do you have SCSI emulation enabled for your CD-ROM drive? If not, that would be your can build those as modules and modprobe them. Then try the scanbus again.

    If you are using a standard ATAPI cdrom-drive try this:
    "cdrecord -scanbus dev=ATAPI"

    because I do, and doing "cdrecord -scanbus" gave me exactly you error message.
