Most of the Linux utilities relating to CD-R/RWs (such as cdrtools) and
I guess ripping are for SCSI devices. This includes psuedo-SCSI (such
as ide-scsi). USB and Firewire mass storage devices also show up as
psuedo-SCSI devices. I would presume you would need to use some sort of
???-scsi module to make your parallel port CDRW look like a SCSI CDRW,
somehow. I've only ever messed with real-live SCSI CD-R/RWs, so I
don't have any first hand knowledge of this. I believe that the
"backpack" devices are actually a form of ide-over-parallel-port, so it
*might* be possible to use the ide-scsi module to make your backpack
CD-RW look like a SCSI CD-RW, which might make your cdrtools happy.
