I notice I do not call for ide=scsi in the grub boot in fedora yet I do in the
working Debian on the older kernel....

The 2.6 kernel uses the ide-cd driver instead. Sometimes the CDROM needs this added to the grub.conf file.



I have checked in /dev and the link is ok to hcd so anyone tell me
where I am going wrong ??

/dev/cdrom or /dev/cdwriter? (pointing to /dev/hdc)


I'm on an FC1 nstallation right now. ls -la /dev/cd* gives me the below output. FC2 of course should be different.

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     9 Jan  2 17:07 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/scd0

Have you tried to burn using the nautilus CD burner feature? (right click on ISO file. Choose write to CD.)

[root box1 dev]# ls -la cd* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Apr 29 20:59 cdrom -> /dev/hdc lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Apr 29 20:59 cdrom1 -> /dev/hdd brw-rw---- 1 root disk 15, 0 Feb 23 21:02 cdu31a brw-rw---- 1 root disk 24, 0 Feb 23 21:02 cdu535 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 May 3 10:18 cdwriter -> /dev/hdc [root box1 dev]#

This is what I get...so the cdwriter is seen however Nautilus
says I have no cdwriter but the kde hardware gui se the cdwriter
I have tried ide=scsi in Grubfor hdc but no joy....


My installation of Fedora Core 2 with two cd burners has this symlinked to the drives. I burned ISOs with hdc and it worked great. It appears that the symlinks are correct.


lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     8 Mar 10 11:41 cdrom -> /dev/hdc
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     8 Mar 10 11:41 cdrom1 -> /dev/hdd
...
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     8 May  2 11:02 cdwriter -> /dev/hdc
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     8 May  2 11:02 cdwriter1 -> /dev/hdd

In my grub.conf file, I have made the entries in it listed below. The first entry is without the ide-cd entry. It is the entry that I burned my last CDs with.
The second entry is what I had to enter to get my cdwriters to work before. It has been awhile since I tried that entry. It used to work for me though. I'm sure that your entries will be a bit different for your setup.


I hope this helps get you able to burn CDs. If not, check bugzilla for cdrom burning problems.
