I'd love some help on this, and some of you may be interested as I'm
using the new binary "backpack.o" from the MicroSolutions web site.
I went back to the "2.2.12-20" kernel source distribution from RedHat
and recompiled (just to keep the module happy, I don't know if that
Now if I do the following:
% modprobe backpack
% ln -sf /dev/pcd0 /dev/cdrom
My CDs play like a charm. Here are the messages:

Now the problem is, before I use cdrecord to write anything, I want to
try to use cdparanoia to rip a few tracks (please note that I have
never done any of this before).
So I try:
% cdparanoia -B
and I get:
cdparanoia III release 9.7 (December 13, 1999)
(C) 1999 Monty <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Xiphophorus
Report bugs to email@example.com
/dev/cdrom exists but isn't accessible. By default,
cdparanoia stops searching for an accessible drive here.
Consider using -s to force a more complete autosense
of the machine.
More information about /dev/cdrom:
Checking /dev/cdrom for cdrom...
Testing /dev/cdrom for cooked ioctl() interface
/dev/pcd0 is not a cooked ioctl CDROM.
Testing /dev/cdrom for SCSI interface
/dev/cdrom is not a SCSI device
I've tried "modprobe ide-scsi" and linking /dev/cdrom to all sorts of
combinations of pg0, scd0, sr0, sdc, and so on. I still get
essentially the same message from cdparanoia.
I realise this may be a cdparanoia-specific problem, but does anyone
have an idea what I should be doing? All the info I've found says
cdparanoia is "the" ripper programme, but I'm willing to try
