    Hi Stephen

    First and for all thanks for replying!!!

    Yes I tried this is the message after the pktsetup /dev/pktcdvd0

    drive not ready
    :Function not implemented

    If I do this pktsetup /dev/pktcdvd0 /dev/pcd1 I get this

    Open cd-rom: No such device

    I still need help or confirmation that this will not work

    thanx in advance
