    Somethings up with my cd drives


    I dunno what happened, but all of a sudden I don't have a /dev/cdrom directory anymore. I try cdrecord -scanbus and it gives me errors and I try to play a CD and cdplayer is saying the device doesn't exist. What happened?

    What IDE position does your CD-ROM have?

    Check what is in /proc/ide/hdc/driver, /proc/ide/hdc/model, /proc/ide/hdd/driver and /proc/ide/hdd/model.

    They have switched to being pure IDE devices instead of going through the SCSI emulation layer. Have you done anything to your modules.conf or your kernel command line?
    You can access them through /dev/hdc and /dev/hdd, but you won't be able to burn anything with them without using SCSI emulation.

    Maybe I did something with all the Gentoo stuff I've been doing. What can I do to correct this? (besides SCSI emulation or whatever)

    Heres my modules.conf:
    Code:
    probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
    alias eth0 3c59x
    above snd-emu10k1 snd-pcm-oss
    alias sound-slot-0 snd-emu10k1
    probeall usb-interface usb-uhci

    Try to add this to your modules.conf, the run the commands below, then reboot:
    Code:
    alias block-major-11 sr_mod
    add above sr_mod ide-scsi
    options ide-cd ignore=hdc,hdd
    Code:
    rm -f /dev/cdrom*
    ln -s scd0 /dev/cdrom
    ln -s scd1 /dev/cdrom1
    Btw., are your /mnt/cdrom* directories still left in place?

    Yes the /mnt/cdrom* directorys are still there. And I did what you said and sadly I think it just made things worse When booting up I think I caught it saying hdc device not there, hdd device not there. Then it did a bunch of modprobe stuff or something like that and they all just failed. I still get the same errors mentioned in my first post as well...

    OK, check again what is in /proc/ide/hd?/driver.
