    ERROR: Cannot retrieve drive capabilities mode page.

    This error occurs regardless of whether running as root or as a
    less privileged user.

    Error appeared after installing Mandrake 10.0 over my old 9.2.

    cdrdao worked perfectly for my YAMAHA CRW2100E Rev:
    1.0N under all previous versions of Mandrake and prior to 1.1.8
    of cdrdao.

    Maybe time to revert to older version of cdrdao?

    I need help with this one. I don't have a Yamaha drive
    available for testing. I don't see any reasons why cdrdao
    1.1.7 would work and 1.1.8 would not.

    The capabilities error simply means that although the drive
    claims to be MMC-compliant, it really isn't. It should
    merely be a warning though as it's only used to determine
    non-critical data such as default read and write speeds.
