Original Poster: Scott Brady

I'm having trouble with sporadic error messages from a new CD-RW.

I've had it about a week now and in that period have only been able to burn
4 discs despite many attempts. The failed burns gave me an error message that
I have enclosed at the end of this post.

The drive is an Actima ARW8432 (8x/4x/32x) that is reported to be a 'CD-R/RW
RW7080A' at boot time and by cdrecord (CdWrite does not support this drive).
It's an ATAPI drive that I'm running in SCSI emulation mode. I have no
trouble reading from the drive.

As an aside, I tried sticking the drive in an AMD K6 500mhz Win98 box and
also had no luck there. When I would try to burn with Nero Cd Burner Win98
would fold like a house of cards. The repeated failure on both boxes/OS's
leads me to believe the drive is bad but I don't want to bring it back unless
I'm certain I'm not the cause of the problem. :-)

Any info would be appreciated.

p.s. I tried swapping out 'dev=/dev/sg1' with 'dev=0,1,0' (the proper
designation for my CD-RW) with no change.

For good measure here is the output of scanning the bus:

Might as well include output from dmesg:
