Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 60658
CD-R(and W) UDF write support ( packet writing )
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:52 EDT
Can please have read/write support for CD-RW discs ?
The thing known as "use the CD as a floppy".
Both the 7.2/7.1 errata kernels as the beta kernels have UDF r/w support enabled
mount -t udf -w /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
gives an error. What am I doing wrong ?
which error ?
the error is :
mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected but explicit '-w' flag given
It is the same if /dev/cdrom points to /dev/hdc,
or if I boot with the hdc=ide-scsi option and
/dev/cdrom points to /dev/scd0
( didn't you get my private mail ? )
Are you still seeing this error with Beta 2?
yes, it is the same in beta2
And it is the same in beta3.
I dont think this will work without the packet writing driver, which is NOT
part of the kernel, at least it wasn't when I submitted this RFE.
