camcontrol isn't going to know anything about IDE devices, it only knows about SCSI. It's hard to see without the propmpts, but are you trying to use burncd as root? A normal user isn't going to have the neccessary privs. to write a cd by default. cdcontrol is simply telling you it can't read the TOC of the cd in the drive, presumably because there's no cd in it. I haven't used cdcontrol in ages, but it's possible it needs root (in the case that you were using it as a normal user with a disk in the drive) -- Thanks, Josh Paetzel _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
