First of all, I'm _no expert_ in these things. So maybe I'm completely
1. Are you sure that the cooked_ioctl interface does not work with SCSI?
2. It looks like if cdda2wav has a command line option "-I" to specify the
" -I interface: specify the interface for cdrom access.\n"
" : (generic_scsi or cooked_ioctl).\n"
Does this solve the problem?
If not, we should discuss your other solutions.
