Description of problem:
A brand new CDRW drive burns disks using cdrecord just fine. On attempt to read 
the freshly recorded disk it reads most of it, but just as the disk spins down, 
gets "read error".
The same CDRW disk can be read fine without ide-scsi emulation on the same 
The same CDRW disk can be read fine on a different machine with 2.4.9 kernel.
It appears to be a bug in ide-scsi module in kernel 2.4.18.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Write about 300M to a CDRW disk using cdrecord

When burning a CDR, everything seems fine. But after the CDR is burned, you
cannot mount it on the burner. /dev/cdrom1

I get the following message, when trying to mount the drive with the disk
management tool.

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom1,
       or too many mounted file systems
       (could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
       ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)

The entries for SCSI devices is this.

/dev/cdrom            /mnt/cdrom            iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0              /mnt/floppy              auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/cdrom1           /mnt/cdrom1       udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/sda1             /mnt/flash               auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0

The symlink for my /dev/cdrom1 points to /dev/hdd for the device driver.

phoebe2 and phoebe3 have the same problem.
