    IDE DVD-RW shows up as SCSI device

    this must be a common issue but i can't find any solutions on the net. i have a Samsung DVD-ROM and a Sony DVD-RW (510 model i think, can't rememer) and it shows up as SCSI which creates some problems for me. those two optical drives are connected thru a dual IDE cable. i don't even have a SCSI controller. could it be the drivers? thanx for your help.

    Believe with the earlier kernels 2.4.x, any CDRW does a SCSI emulation. With the new 2.6, it appears that as long as you have the latest version of cdrecord, you would not need SCSI emulation.
