I am aware that acd?c still shows up in my dmesg because I have both options in my kernel. let me make this less painful :).. how, what is the command that I can use to eject/load my parallel device, which shows as: cd0 at ata1 bus 0 target 1 lun 0 cd0: <LG CD-ROM CRD-8521B 1.00> Removable CD-ROM SCSI-0 device cd0: 16.000MB/s transfers cd0: cd present [183123 x 2048 byte records] I dont see any signs in my dmesg that says "CDR/CDRW. I dont know, I'm a bit confused here.. I've seen already other people's dmesg, and it shows their CDRW in dmesg thanks again for ur time! :) Ed. > > -- > Scott A.
