Installing/Configuring CD-RW Drives

paladinpaladin Member Posts: 97
I could use some help installing/configuring my Yamaha CD-RW drive. I installed the drive, then reinstalled LINUX after making the hardware change. Apparently, when I loaded the LINUX, it made some configuration changes that seem to make sense. In my device directory command ls -al, I see the following output:
/dev/cdrecorder->/dev/hdd

I think this is telling me that the device file /dev/cdrecorder is appropriate for (i.e. linked or bound to...) my Yamaha which is the hdd device.

None of the literature I read says anything about this device file (cdrecorder). Can anyone shed any light on this?

Thanks....

    basically /dev/cdrecorder is a link to the device file /dev/hdd which is you cd-r device. when mounting the CD-R / CR-RW you can either mount /dev/hdd or /dev/cdrecorder

    From what I can tell there is absolutly no difference. /dev/cdrecorder was added just to make it make it simpler to know what device you are working with.
