Thank-you Vulpes and Chuck; the atapicam mechanism looks like a fine idea. However, I am having problems getting it to work for me... O.K. I am running FreeBSD 4.9. I built a new kernel with: device ata0 at isa? port IO_WD1 irq 14 device ata1 at isa? port IO_WD2 irq 15 device ata device atadisk # ATA disk drives #device atapicd # ATAPI CDROM drives #device atapifd # ATAPI floppy drives #device atapist # ATAPI tape drives device atapicam # CAM device device scbus # Needed for CAM device device pass # Needed to connect scsi to cam device cd # SCSI cd connected through CAM device options ATA_STATIC_ID # Static device numbering Some output from dmesg: Copyright (c) 1992-2003 The FreeBSD Project.

It is connected as a slave to the HP CD-Writer that is the master on the second IDE channel. I have installed growisofs and cdrtools. cdrecord version is 2.00.3. I can mount CDs on both cd0 and cd1. I can record CDs with cdrecord on cd0, BUT I cannot record DVDs on cd1. I am using Memorex DVD-Rs. Rated at 4.7GB on the label. When I execute growisofs with one of these DVD-Rs in it I get: > growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/cd1c=nycity.iso :-( unable to open("/dev/cd1c",O_RDONLY): Device not configured However, I can mount CDs on it. It looks as though growisofs thinks that the device is read-only. Any advice would be greatly appreciated; I was hoping to use this DVD setup as a back-up media as tapes are getting expensive.
