cdrecord does not accept /dev output files?
I have a CD writer located at '/dev/burner'.
It's an IDE drive, but I use ide-scsi to make it look like a SCSI device
with bus ID '1,1,0'.
It works fine. I've just always wondered why I have to do 'cdrecord
dev=1,1,0 disk.iso' instead of the more obvious 'cdrecord /dev/burner
disk.iso'. Surely some part of the kernel knows that /dev/burner is
SCSI ID '1,1,0'. I can mount /dev/burner on, say, /cdrom as a read-only
mount and it reads CDs with no problem.
Can anybody explain this? Thanks.
