can't find ATAPI CDROM with cdrecord on Sol8

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Alexandros Gougousoudis, Sep 5, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    I googled the net but I can't find what to do. I attached a ATAPI DVD-Burner
    in an USB-Case to our Sun Blade with Sol8 (Sparc), it works without
    problems, and if I do cdrecord -scanbus the Burner is found.

    But the internal CDROM (also ATAPI) is not found by cdrecord (but it is
    fully working with other apps). Cdrecord doesn't see it, as a SCSI Device,
    so what have I to do to make the CDROM look like SCSI? I read a lot about
    uscsi and sd, but no example how to use it. Hope, some of you guys can help.
    What I want to do is, to read a CD in the CDROM and write a copy of it to
    the burner, without an image.

    TIA Alex

  2. You need to kill "vold" since it is hanging on to the CDROM.
    When vold is dead cdrecord -scanbus works.

    $ cd /etc
    $ more vold.conf
    # ident "@(#)vold.conf 1.26 00/07/17 SMI"
    # Volume Daemon Configuration file

    # Database to use (must be first)
    db db_mem.so

    # Labels supported
    label cdrom label_cdrom.so cdrom
    label dos label_dos.so floppy rmdisk
    label sun label_sun.so floppy rmdisk

    # Devices to use
    use cdrom drive /dev/rdsk/c*s2 dev_cdrom.so cdrom%d
    use floppy drive /dev/rdiskette[0-9] dev_floppy.so floppy%d
    use rmdisk drive /dev/rdsk/c*s2 dev_rmdisk.so rmdisk%d
