    Even though your CD-Writer is IDE, it will be recognized as a SCSI (/dev/scd0) . Most CD-Writing programs should automatically detect the drive. BTW, what CD-Writer do you have?

    I have a sony CD-RW CRX160E....and I was finally able to get it working last night. When I did "cdrecord -scanbus" it wasn't showing up as a scsi drive, but after changing a few things I was finally able to get it working. Thanks.

    Anytime. Another good thing about Linux is that with X CD-Roast, I can actually overburn CD's without failure! I couldn't do that in Nero! :D

    I started by using GToaster, but now I use X CD Roast. The two major reasons why I recommend X CD Roast are the following:

    - Can overburn CD's
    - Is the only writer to use a variety of CD-R's, from 20 minutes (175 MB) all the way to 99 minutes (870 MB)!

    I'm not sure about VCD Creating, but I could look it up.
