    Hello all..

    I'm having trouble getting my Backpack CD-RW drive working under Linux.

    The model number is 185100, and it says "Series 6 Driver" .. so, of
    course, I'm using bpck6. My parport is in EPP mode at 0x378.

    When I modprobe pg verbose=1 I get:

    pg: pg version 1.02, major 97
    pg0: 0x378 is parport0

    and it never gets any further than that.

    So, hoping to take a baby-step, I rebooted and tried the pcd driver, and I
    get essentially the same thing

    pcd: pcd version 1.07, major 46, nice 0
    pcd0: 0x378 is parport0

    and then it stalls..

    Can anyone give me a clue?
