#44 Interpreting error - Samsung SW-232



I am a software engineer with some career experience
digital recording products and am willing to put some
effort into
fixing the problem I have using cdrdao 1.1.5 to write
to my new
Samsung SW-232 drive but I need some guidance. Any reply
gratefully received.

I am using Red Hat Linux 7.1.

I've sent a message to the help forum and got no response.
(My message is here:
but I will try and summarise all important details.)

The first thing I need is some suggestion as to what
is the problem i.e. is it just a case of specifying the
right options
or is the drive not supported by the software?

Samsungs web site suggests using their products with Linux
shouldn't be too much of a problem and a couple are
known to
work with generic-mmc/generic-mmc-raw. I managed to get
cdrecord to backup lots of data so does this mean that
it is
possible, perhaps by patching the software, or is there
technical constraint so that writing audio may not be
even when writing data is?

I have tried --driver generic-mmc-raw and --driver

--simulate worked.

I don't understand why I get:

Turning BURN-Proof on

twice when not simulating. Isn't this wrong?

Anyway, the following messages would appear to be the
