ok, i downloaded the new cdrecord, and compiled with with the
scsi-linux-pg.c (it took quite a bit of makefile hacking to actually get
this to compile with no errors). I also set EPP support in my CMOS
(EPP1.9) and some things have changed and cdrecord wont recognize my

here is the new output:
pg: pg version 1.01s, major 97
pg0: epat 1.01, Shuttle EPAT chip c6 at 0x378, mode 5 (EPP-32), delay 0
pg0: HP CD-Writer+ 7100, slave

and when i try to do some -dummy tests, i get this....
scsidev: '0,0'
scsibus: 0 target: 0 lun: 0
cdrecord: No such device. Cannot open '/dev/pg0'.

the command I use is:
cdrecord -dummy -eject speed=2 -data /home/djsmoke/test.iso dev=0,0
