(I never thought about this yet. I just tried generic_scsi and it worked
for me so I used it for the package :-)

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.
