Hi Douglas,
This is how I setup my HP7500.
Had some trouble but got it to work, had to download the latest cdrecord and
mkisofs files.
Hope it helps,

Hi all,
I'm trying to burn a cd to an HP 7500e.(external through paralel port)
I do:
modprobe parport
moprobe epat
modprobe pg
then check lsmod and the modules are loaded and using one another.
I can even do 'mount /dev/pcd0 /mnt/tmp' and it works fine.
I do a 'cdrecord -scanbus' and it gives me a list with the cdwriter on
it as SCSI id 0 on Bus 0(I have no other SCSI stuff)
Then, I make an image to write to the cd using 'mkisofs -r -o image
Check it with 'mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 image /mnt/tmp'
I finally use 'cdrecord dev=0,0 -data image' to burn the cd.
But it doesn't work.:(
I'm including a file(prob.txt) with the output, maybe someone can help
me out.
Thanks a lot in advance,
