Samsung SH-S183A SATA on VIA VT6420 controller
I'm trying to get my Samsung SH-S183A SATA drive to work. It's actually
working for the most part - I can eject, mount, play media fine. It can
display the mediainfo / atip / etc for (re)writeable media I put in.
The only thing that doesn't work at all, is writing a CD / DVD.
cdrecord (cdrtools-2.01.01a25-pre2) says
> cdrecord: Cannot init drive.
I posted cdrecord -vvv output here, since it's >100kb:
growisofs (7.0.1) says
> Executing 'builtin_dd if=/root/knoppix5.iso of=/dev/sr1 obs=32k seek=0'
> :-[ MODE SELECT failed with SK=5h/ASC=26h/ACQ=00h]: Input/output error
No idea how to get more verbose output from growisofs.
OS is Linux 2.6.18 Debian Etch, cdrecord installed manually
(downloaded the tarball, compiled using 'make', nothing more).
The board is an ASUS A7V880, with a VIA VT6420 SATA RAID Controller
(integrated into VT8237 southbridge). Are there any known problems
with this controller? Is it simply incompatible with CD/DVD writers?
If it's supposed to work, what can I do to help debug this problem?
