Hey all,

Happy 4th.

I am trying to run cdrecord to copy some music files to a CD, but 
there seems to be some issues wtih kernal 2.6? The distro is Xandros 3 
Deluxe.

Here is the kernal I have installed:
linux1:/home/sevans# uname -a
Linux linux1 2.6.9-x1 #1 Mon Nov 29 10:12:57 EST 2004 i686 GNU/Linux

And here is the cdrecord command and its output:

linux1:/home/sevans# cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=0,0 -audio 
/home/sevans/cd1/*.wav
cdrecord: No write mode specified.
cdrecord: Asuming -tao mode.
cdrecord: Future versions of cdrecord may have different drive 
dependent defaults.

Looks like it can't find a SCSI device so it gives up?

Thanks!

By the way, someone mentioned he uses Konqueror for copying CDs, but I 
was not able to figure out how to make it do that.

Is that person around?

Thanks again!
