Re: [PARPORT] Writing cd's to HP 7200E

I also have an hp 7200e that I use with linux. Once I patched the kernel with
2.0.35, ran insmod paride, insmod epat, insmod pg, there is a script written by
grant guenther called mkd which will create your device /dev/pg0 if your drive
is connected to parallel port one. You can cut and paste that script and make
it executable and run it. After you compile cdrecord with scsi-linux-pg.c, run
cdrecord with dev=0,0. Grant Guenther should be able to tell you exactly where
that script is located. Hope this helps.
