I am running a parallel port IDE adapter from Shuttle Technology connected
to a CD-ROM. Using the modules paride/epat/pcd works fine, I can mount data
CDs and use them. (Thanx to the person who has developed this driver!!!)
However, I did not get any audio grabber to work so far. Also, the CD
players will not work. Is there a way to fix this problem? In Win95, all the
CD grabbers using ATAPI work fine.

Thanks in advance,

PS: This is, for example, the output of 'cdparanoia -Q':

/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
