Description Mikko Kurki-Suonio 2003-02-16 09:58:05 UTC

Description of problem:

 I've tried to use my new PCRW4816 under RedHat 8.0, using cdrecord.
It works fine EXCEPT when it should finish writing -- then it hangs
the machine (or rather, makes the machine _extremely_ unresponsive but
not totally dead).

Looking at logs, it seems the drive is timeouting all SCSI commands
and cdrecord for some reason can not progress.

Interestingly, the same thing in -dummy mode works just fine.

I am using -eject

This problem need a power recycle to clear, a soft boot isn't enough,
which suggests to me that the drive itself is at fault.

It seems to have firmware version P1.3

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert blank CD
2. cdrecord speed=24 -eject -data foobar.iso

Actual Results:  CD is written OK, but then machine hangs. Need power cycle to 
recognize CD drive again.

Expected Results:  Finish writing ok.

seem to be the kernel

Comment 2 Mikko Kurki-Suonio 2003-03-11 06:21:05 UTC
I tried this again, setting recording speed to 16x -- and it works fine.

I had previously worked from the assumption that lower speeds are more 
reliable and tried 4x.

Go figure...

Comment 3 Mikko Kurki-Suonio 2003-03-11 06:22:35 UTC
Argh! Whatever, anyway, speed 16x seems to be working.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
