Hello, Everyone :)
I have been following this specific thread, and this general subject,
with great interest, since I have had the same problem and am interested
in it's solution.  First of all, here is some proof that the drive Does
exist: (I've uploaded a screenshot of the output of the "usbview"
command because I couldn't figure out how to copy and paste from the
"usbview" browser :)

Here is the output of "cdrecord -scanbus":

Last night, I updated to the latest Rawhide (if I can still use that
term) kernel and I successfully burned a cd from an image that I had
made yesterday.  Problem is, when I tried to rip a cd this morning, this
is the output from "cdparanoia -v -d /dev/scd0 -B 1- TheJam.wav" that I
got (I have edited it greatly, because I think it would have kept going
if I hadn't stopped it):

I don't in any way deny the reality of your statement as contained in
the following quotation:

So I assume that I am probably doing something wrong.  The command that
I used to try to rip from the above mentioned Iomega external CDRW drive
is the same one that still works perfectly under Fedora Core 1.  To
clarify, I am running FC1 and FC2TR3 on the same box, with the same
Iomega drive plugged into the same USB2 port, ripping does work under
FC1, and it Does Not work under FC2TR3.

In closing, I truly believe that maybe I am doing something wrong, and
that maybe something has changed about the way I'm supposed to rip CD's
under FC2TR3.  If that is the case, I'd love to know what to do so I can
make it work :)

If I have left out any necessary information, please let me know.

Have a Great Day :)

OOops, Just saw this at the beginning of the output of "cdrecord
-scanbus":

scsidev: 'ATA'
devname: 'ATA'
scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2

For all I know, it might be meaningless, but I'm not an expert :)
