[FreeBSD 4.8] CD-RW drive and closing tray with cdcontrol

Post by fred » Fri, 18 Jul 2003 04:45:38

Hi all,

I have recent CD-RW and DVD-ROM SAMSUNG drive.

To eject the tray, I use cdcontrol which works fine.

But for closing the tray, only the DVD-ROM works fine.

For the CD-RW drive, I get the message

acd0: START_STOP - ILLEGAL REQUEST asc=0x53 ascq=0x02 error=0x00

The source says that is caused by ioctl() with an I/O error (errno = 5).

What does it means ?

Is it a hardware problem or can I fix it ?

Thanks in advance.

2. Overwriting Backup files on CD-RW uses 700MB space for 4.8 MB file

I'm backing up my Microsoft Money file daily using the XP wizard. The file is written to the hard drive and a balloon then pops up on the task bar that says you have files waiting to be wirtten to CD. I open the dialog and click on write these files to CD. Everything works fine but eventually (about a month and a half of backups) I get a message that says the CD is full. When I view the CD properties in explorer, I see that the actual file is ~ 4.76 MB (approximately 0.12 MB larger than the same file on the prior backup CD) but the space remaining is 0

Please reply to my e-mail if you know the answer to this riddle.
