Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 141082
cdrecord --scanbus results change every time
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:13:13 EST
I'm filing this as a kernel bug as well because it's not the only
problem i'm having with this usb-storage dvd writer (lite-on...it
worked fine until mid-way through the FC2 kernels, then after kernel
2.6.6-1.435.2.3 i started having problems with it...)
but since cdrecord prints such a blatant warnings about redhat mods
and there are no kernel oopses for THIS problem, here goes...
(text of bug #141081)
fresh reboot on kernel 2.6.9-1.681_FC3 with all devices off. turn on
external USB lite-on dvd+rw drive. detects ok. run cdrecord -scanbus
to find the device. write an audio cd in TAO mode once... run
cdrecord -scanbus afterward and the device is listed as garbled
nonsense. repeat, multiple times to get different nonsense... (no
complaints from the kernel in the system logs)
I'll upload some sample output in a moment...
