    This problem is listed several times on the support page .  It's an error that prevents any cd writing:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Cdrdao version 1.1.5 - (C) Andreas Mueller
    <andreas@daneb.de>
    L-EC encoding library - (C) Heiko Eissfeldt

    Check http://cdrdao.sourceforge.net/drives.html#dt for
    current driver tables.

    ERROR: 0,0,0: Need a filename that resolves to a SCSI
    device.
    ERROR: Cannot map "0,0,0" to a SG device.
    ERROR: Please use option '--device bus,id,lun', e.g.
    --device 0,6,0
    ERROR: Cannot setup device 0,0,0.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The cdrdao man entry explains how to set defaults for startup, namely by setting the device and the driver in the file /etc/defaults/cdrdao-this corresponds tto the "--device 0,0,0" option above.  I think this may fix the problem.

    However, I am not sure what my settings should be.  I have a usb 2.0 device (IOmagic), which SuSe 8.0. recognizes and assigns to /dev/sr0. ( This is not the device cdrdao is looking for.)  How do I find the 0,0,0 values?  I've also heard that 2.4.x kernels allow for just a string name of the device.

    The problem also lies, I think, in the 2.4.x kernels.  Any help?

          so which version and command line are you exactly using?
