Does cdrecord -scanbus recognize the drives as SCSI? Can you post the
output of that? I had to add this line to modules.conf to get the ide-cd
module to ignore my drives:
options ide-cd ignore=hdd ignore=hdc
I also have this (as you can see, I have two CD drives):
alias scd0 sr_mod # load sr_mod upon access of scd0
alias scd1 sr_mod
pre-install sg modprobe ide-scsi # load ide-scsi before sg
pre-install sr_mod modprobe ide-scsi # load ide-scsi before sr_mod
Others have said that adding this line to modules.conf helps:
alias scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
but that one caused the system to think my Zip drive was SCSI, so YMMV.
Make sure that sg (scsi generic), ide-scsi, and ide-cd are all built as
modules; if any of it is in the kernel itself you'll have less control,
since you can't unload it.
