Better not use 6.1. 6.2 has been out for some time now. The following works for me; 1) Make sure that the CD/DVD rewriter is controlled as a SCSI device instead of an ATAPI device. Build a kernel with the following devices: # ATA and ATAPI devices # Do _not_ include the atapicd driver! device ata device atadisk # ATA disk srives device ataraid # RAID drives # The atapicam device is not included in the GENERIC amd64 kernel! device atapicam # Emulate ATAPI devices as SCSI via CAM options ATA_STATIC_ID # Static device numbering # SCSI peripherals device scbus # SCSI bus (required for SCSI) device cd # Compact Disc device da # Direct Access (disks) device pass # Passthrough device (direct SCSI access) 2) Set the device permissions correctly # Give members of group cdrom access to the CD/DVD-ROM and DVD+RW via the # SCSI interface own xpt0 root:cdrom perm xpt0 0660 own cd0 root:cdrom perm cd0 0660 own cd1 root:cdrom perm cd1 0660 link cd1 cdrom link cd1 dvd My user-id is part of the cdrom group. 3) Use 'cdrecord -scanbus' to determine which device to use; Cdrecord-ProDVD-Clone 2.01.01a11 (amd64-unknown-freebsd6.2) Copyright (C) 1995-2006 Jörg Schilling Using libscg version 'schily-0.8'. scsibus1: 1,0,0 100) 'HL-DT-ST' 'DVD-ROM GDR8163B' '0L23' Removable CD-ROM 1,1,0 101) 'PLEXTOR ' 'DVDR PX-716A ' '1.08' Removable CD-ROM So I'm using 1,1,0. 4) Burn the image; cdrecord -v -eject -dao speed=32 driveropts=burnfree dev=1,1,0 -pad \ -data 6.2-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso HTH, Roland -- R.F.Smith http://www.xs4all.nl/~rsmith/ [plain text _non-HTML_ PGP/GnuPG encrypted/signed email much appreciated] pgp: 1A2B 477F 9970 BA3C 2914 B7CE 1277 EFB0 C321 A725 (KeyID: C321A725)
