I had no trouble using k3b in my aptosid box-- 'til today. Some package I upgraded must have altered some config file because now k3b doesn't even recognize my CD-burner/DVD player. I used apt-get purge to get rid of k3b and apt-get install to re-install k3b. I rebooted but no luck.

When all worked just fine before this problem, my combo CD-burner/DVD player drive was known as /dev/cdrom

Info on my k3b:

Version 2.0.2
Using KDE Development Platform 4.4.5 (KDE 4.4.5)

My kernel and OS:

Host/Kernel/OS "aptosidbox" running Linux 2.6.35-7.slh.1-aptosid-686 i686 [ aptosid 2010-02 Κῆρες - kde-lite - (201009132215) ]


What do I edit to get k3b to see my CD-burner/DVD player?


Thanks

Here are outputs of ' mount ', ' dmesg | grep -i atapi ', and ' cat /etc/fstab '

- mount:

$ mount
/dev/sda1 on / type ext4 (rw,noatime,errors=remount-ro,barrier=0,commit=0)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/sda5 on /media/disk1part5 type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,commit=0)
/dev/sda6 on /home type ext4 (rw,noatime,errors=remount-ro,barrier=0,user_xattr,commit=0)
fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)

- dmesg | grep -i atapi:

$ dmesg | grep -i atapi
[ 1.651866] ata2.00: ATAPI: LITE-ON LTR-48327S, PUS6, max UDMA/33

- cat /etc/fstab:

$ cat /etc/fstab

# UUID=b34c31e9-fd35-4454-9f4c-c085ecd5a06d /home ext4 defaults,noatime,errors=remount-ro,barrier=0 0 2
UUID=b34c31e9-fd35-4454-9f4c-c085ecd5a06d /home ext4 defaults,noatime,errors=remount-ro,barrier=0,user_xattr 0 2

I hope the above helps you help me.


Thanks

In another forum, I was told to do this:

"Use 'cdrecord -scanbus' for valid output."

"cdrecord" isn't available in aptosid. It's been replaced by wodim. I then ran and got this output:

# wodim -scanbus
scsibus1:
1,0,0 100) 'LITE-ON ' 'LTR-48327S ' 'PUS6' Removable CD-ROM
1,1,0 101) 'TSSTcorp' 'CDW/DVD TS-H492B' 'IB00' Removable CD-ROM
1,2,0 102) *
1,3,0 103) *
1,4,0 104) *
1,5,0 105) *
1,6,0 106) *
1,7,0 107) *

[end of output]


So, after getting the output, I saw my CD-burner/DVD player listed in it. Next I opened k3b and see my CD-burner/DVD player once again showing up there. Don't know why this didn't happen after 1 or 2 reboots following apt-get install k3b, a re-install of k3b that followed apt-get purge k3b.

I hope k3b continues to be recognized by my system. I don't really understand why this sort of thing happens now and then.
