Gnometoaster doesn't see my Plextor burner

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any suggestions for a cd burner app that can use my Plextor 40x24x40 burner? When I open the app, there are no recorders listed to select from, so I am assuming that it doesn't "see" it properly. Thanks.

First, is your CD-Writer IDE or SCSI? Because you may need scsi emulation enabled for IDE CD-Writer.

 

If this is IDE, do you know if the ide-scsi module is loaded during LILO/GREP?

 

I found out that Mandrake 8.2 can detect my IDE CD-Writer and automatically loaded ide-scsi module in LILO at boot, as I did a fresh installation. Don't know if this is the case with your problem.

Scratch that, I "discovered" www.xcdroast.com" and the app xcdroast. It works very well, but you have to install cdr-tools (it tells you where to get them) firstly from a tarball, then from 3 more rpms. Afterward, you can install xcdroast and start it as root (su) so you can setup the configuration with parameters such as "allowable users/hosts" and the image directory. Just thought I would pass this along. Oh, and another thing, according to their site the version that comes with RH8 (mine didn't install it, go figure) it out of date and the recommend getting their most current rpm.
