problem installling a dvd
I run fedora core (2.4.22-1.2149.nptl). I'm trying to use a usb dvd-rw Pioneer DVR-106D as a backup device. The device is seen not as a dvd but as a cdrom (/mnt/cdrom). I confess I am not an expert on linux but plenty of good wishes.
If I run dmegs I get:
scsi1 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
Vendor: ASUS Model: CRW-5224A Rev: 1.36
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi CD-ROM sr1 at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
sr1: scsi3-mmc drive: 52x/52x writer cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
If I 'cdrecord -scanbus' I get:
0,0,0 0) 'PIONEER ' 'DVD-RW DVR-106D' '1.07' Removable CD-ROM
0,1,0 1) *
0,2,0 2) *
0,3,0 3) *
0,4,0 4) *
0,5,0 5) *
0,6,0 6) *
0,7,0 7) *
So, everything looks working. But when I try to transfer an image created with 'mkisofs -R -o <namefile.cd>' (after putting a blank disk in...) this is what I get:
# dvdrecord -v speed=2 dev=0,0,0 -data <namefile.cd>

Tbh I dont think that matters.. you can still use it as a dvd rw. If you really want to you can put a new file in /dev called "dvd" and make it a symlink to /dev/cdrom
