    SOLVED - has anyone got NEC burners to work?


    I have a customer using red hat 9 and I recently installed (after much hassle figuring it out) k3b's latest version (I don't like any other linux burning software)

    and she has four nec nr 7800b burners which is not natively supported by linux
    I haven't seen any drivers for it either.
    None of the burning software I tried recognizes it
    I did cdrecord-scanbus and it only picked up the cd rom drive
    I can use the burner for read access though.

    Any ideas?

    Do you mean that it isn't an ATAPI burner? That must be quite unusual.
    You said that you could access the burner for read access. Did you do that through the IDE interface or the SCSI interface? I'm thinking that if you did it through SCSI, it's pretty weird that cdrecord -scanbus didn't find it.

    I got it to work - just needed to run it as root first. Weird.

    It was the same with older versions of Mozilla. If you didn't run it as root the first time, it would just segfault.

    yeah, but at least mozilla tells you to run it as root somewhere, lol

    oh well, it's working, so it doesn't matter now.
