I have two drives; a CD ROM and CD RW. I am getting very slow responses when using these drives and some unexplained problems. When I look at /dev to see how they are set up I find that both are soft linked to sr0.
In YaST Hardware Information the two drives are shown correctly ie:
cdrw /dev/sr0 (also /dev/scd0)
cdrom /dev/sr1 (also /dev/scd1)
Is the conflicting soft link an installation bug and could it be the cause of some problems?
Hi & thanks for the reply. I shall check the DMA setting when I get back to the machine. My concern remains however that there is a conflict between how YaST reports the hardware and the /dev settings. When using a multimedia app such as KAudiocreator it cannot discriminate between the two drives because they are both shown as cdrom. With SuSE 10.0 I had it setup so I could select either drive from the drop down menu and it could distinguish between the two.
I shall edit the soft link in /dev and see if that makes any difference.
Regards & thanks again.
