    Try dev=/dev/hdc

    ATAPI burning works and is better than SCSI emulation.

    it worked ! thank you.

    just for my basic understanding - why didn't it worked with SCSI emulation ?

    Maybe because of the -- you had in front of the "dev=" arg. That's the only thing I can think of off the top of my head.

    Glad to hear that it works now, though. As I said, SCSI emulation is no longer needed for burning. I even believe that most GUI frontends to cdrecord are actually using this functionality. I've been (using CL cdrecord) using ATAPI burning for some time now...possibly a year.
