Re: cd record on an IBM T40p with Linux 2.6.9
You need to look at your grub config file for the append line for the kernel. For ide-scsi to work there is a "hdc=ide-scsi" option on that line. Your option may have something other than hdc. If you remove that, it will never load the ide-scsi module and then you can use the ATAPI:0,0,0 type device to burn to. Just for reference, you can not unload a kernel module that has already bound to a device. That is why you got that message trying to unload the ide-scsi module.

thanks for your answer!
After reading the error message of cdrecord, I already tried burning
CDs as root. When I try to unload ide_scsi, I get the following
sr_mod 17188 0
cdrom 39964 2 ide_cd,sr_mod
ide_scsi 17028 0
scsi_mod 123212 2 sr_mod,ide_scsi
ntfs 102768 1
vfat 14592 1
fat 45984 1 vfat
ide_disk 20224 8
unix 28212 268
uccellina:~# rmmod ide_scsi
Has anybody seen this before?
