1.1.8 ATAPI: mode page failure

  • Anonymous - 2004-03-13

    I'm trying to use 1.1.8 with Linux 2.4.23 and the generic-mmc driver to copy a  CD. I'm using the ATAPI: interface.

    This is the command line:
    cdrdao copy --on-the-fly --speed 16 \ --driver generic-mmc --device ATAPI:0,0,0 \ --source-driver generic-mmc --source-device ATAPI:0,1,0 \ --with-cddb --cddb-servers freedb.freedb.org:8880 tocfile

    The read cycle produces this message:
    Cannot retrieve drive capabilities mode page.
    at speed 0...

    The write cycle produces these messages:
    ERROR: Cannot retrieve write parameters mode page.
    ERROR: Cannot setup write parameters for session-at-once mode.
    ERROR: Please try to use the 'generic-mmc-raw' driver.
    ERROR: Writing failed.
    ERROR: On-the-fly CD copying failed.

    Does anyone have the ATAPI: interface working with generic-mmc (generic-mmc-raw also fails)?

    Does this work only with 2.6 or later kernels?

      The error message sounds like the drive isn't MMC-compliant (Mode command failing). What drives are you using ? Ever had problems with cdrecord ? Have you tried without using the --on-the-fly option ? (i don't trust on-the-fly copying).

      Both drives work OK with the generic-mmc driver if I enable ide-scsi emulation. I'm trying to get the straight ATAPI interface working prior to upgrading my kernel from 2.4.23 to 2.6.x.

      I think it doesn't work with 2.4.x kernels. It seems to work partially but it doesn't.

      I recommend you to upgrade to 2.6.x kernel as it's improved in many more areas.
