cdparanoia with usb cdrom

I've got a usb cdrom drive that's a lot faster than the drive in my laptop. But I have a problem getting it to rip cds. I have grip installed and when I run it, it finds the cd and I'm able to select tracks to rip. But when I push "rip and encode" it fails to rip them. When I run cdparanoia -d /dev/sr0 -v test.wav, I get the following:

Checking /dev/sr0 for cdrom...
        Testing /dev/sr0 for cooked ioctl() interface
                      /dev/sr0 is not a cooked ioctl CDROM.
         Testing /dev/sr0 for SCSI interface
                       No generic SCSI device found to match CDROM device /dev/sr0


Anyone who can point me in the right direction about this, I would appreciate it.

Re: cdparanoia with usb cdrom

Check to make sure you have generic SCSI and SCSI CDROM support (kernel modules sg and sr_mod). Check the permissions of /dev/sg0 and /dev/sr0 and make sure you have read and write access. If this fails, try using cdda2wav instead of cdparanoia. I believe grip supports both.

Re: cdparanoia with usb cdrom

Newbie Corner advertises that there are no stupid questions here, so I'll chance this one. Where's the appropriate place to put modprobe sg and modprobe sr_mod so that they start at boot? I've put them in /etc/rc.local because /etc/modprobe.conf didn't seem like the right place.

Re: cdparanoia with usb cdrom

Put them in the MODULES array of /etc/rc.conf
