    Hi,

    How can I read from ATAPI non-scsi CDROM

    can I specify something like
    cdrdao --source=/dev/cdrom .... ?

     
    • You will have to enable the SCSI host adaptor
      emulation for IDE devices and disable the
      native ATAPI CD-ROM support in the kernel.
      After that all ATAPI CD-ROM drives appear as
      SCSI devices and you will have to use /dev/sr? or
      /dev/scd? for mounting, etc. For cdrdao you can
      then use 'cdrdao scanbus' to print out the
      values that are suitable for the '--device x,y,z'
      option.

        is 'cdrdao scanbus' hidden command? i know the command now. why don't you add it to manual and usage for 'cdrdao --help'

         
        • 'scanbus' will be an official command in the
          1.1.5 release.
