cdrecord 1.8a20 with RICOH RO-1060C driver.


 



IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO USE CDRECORD WITH A RICOH RO-1060C WORM DEVICE
USE THE ORIGINAL CDRECORD AND NOT THIS RELEASE !!!!

If you want to use an RICOH RO-1060C WORM device with your UNIX system you may
had noticed that there was no support in the past.

Ricoh do NOT want to provide the necessary informations to anyone. Joerg Schilling (the author of cdrecord) did  not get any support. I ask in several emails and at the CeBit ´99, but they do not wanted to support anyone :-(
so please do not buy an ricoh device in future for your linux box !!!
For this reason Joerg Schilling (the author of cdrecord) was not able to include support for this device.



CAUTION:
I HAD ALSO NO INFORMATIONS FROM RICOH WHILE I WORK ON THIS DRIVER
I AM NOT RESPONSBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE
EITHER ON THE WORM DEVICE OR  TO A CD-R

Someone told me that some MS Windows applications working with wine
(http://www.winehq.com). I tryed to work with the emulation, but there are
still some problems with the emulation and also the usual windows problems:
If the systems gets busy, your cd-r is still good enough for a frisby slice.

I had made some hacks to wine to get all the data the windows application sends
and receives from the WORM. I tryed to find out which byte(sometimes which bit)
means which function. While burning a track with a size of 5MB I got a log file
with a size of 70MB !!!

This first release was able to burn a one track data cd with a session fix !!!
(After 3 frisbys)



Everyone who had tested it (or was not able to do this for some reasons) should send me a mail !!!
(Or I do this only for my own and build only the functions I need for my own !!!)


Okay, now you might download this third try here.

Features which should work:

Features which maybe work (untested): Features which will NOT work: in fact:
after 3 discs in the litter this first release was able to burn two single track CD-ROM mode 1 successfully.
i need again 2 cd-r's before i was able to burn a 12 track CD-A.

I had burned some CD-ROM Mode 1 with several file systems (ISO, Rock-Ridge, Joliet, long)
One CD-Audio wich one an old technics player played fine !

my system:
i586 P-100 2xSMP
ncr53x810 and adaptec 2940UW
Linux 2.2.5 SMP
