Re: cannot setup HP7200 anymore

What he said. You should be using ide-scsi for this drive. And if you
don't want things to change don't update your kernel. We're all fighting

I was suddenly hit by recent changes in linux. I tried today to use my
old HP 7200 parallel port CD-Writer and there is no way I could make
it appear as scsi device. I manage to load all the modules and I get
pg: pg version 1.02, major 97
pg0: Sharing parport0 at 0x378
pg0: epat 1.02, Shuttle EPAT chip c6 at 0x378, mode 5 (EPP-32), delay
pg0: HP CD-Writer+ 7200, slave
but when I try to load ide-scsi I can't see it as SCSI device. I
wanted to try the new ide-cd interface but don't know how pg0 should
be addressed. I'm pretty desperate. Why things that WERE working are
broken now. Who is so stupid to do this? Sorry for that but I'm
getting pretty desperate.
The apripriate driver is "pg", not ide-scsi ..... Linux confusion....
99% of all HP CD-Writer+ 7200 are dead now.

It seemed like a good idea at the time
