Device seems to be: Generic mmc2 DVD-R/DVD-RW.
Using generic SCSI-3/mmc   CD-R/CD-RW driver (mmc_cdr).
Supported modes:
cdrecord: Drive does not support TAO recording.
cdrecord: Illegal write mode for this drive.

The same occurs when passing "-dao" to cdrecord ("cdrecord: Drive does
not support SAO recording."). The drive has worked fine in this machine.
Writing to a SCSI-CDR in the same machine works fine with the same
cdrecord version.
kernel is kernel-2.6.8-1.526

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to write to an ATAPI writer

Actual Results:  cdrecord claims no supported writing modes

Expected Results:  Writing to media

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2004-08-25 12:23:25 UTC
can you try:
instead of
# cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc -tao
the ATA interface:
# cdrecord dev=ATA:1,0,0 -tao

Comment 2 Ralf Ertzinger 2004-08-25 17:27:34 UTC
The same result (the correct drive is being used).

Comment 3 Ralf Ertzinger 2004-08-27 16:47:32 UTC
The same command works as root.
