lost my usb cdwriter

hey there, ever since i upgraded my kernel to 2.6.9 my usb cd writer is found but cannot be used to burn a cd. i hope thats what it is, and not fried hardware. either cdrecord scanbus freaks or sometimes when its found by xcdroast, it will get as far as writing the disk, but then rejects the disk as
"wrong media"
are there any known issues about this?
thanks

>2.6.8.1 the kernel contains new code for cdburners and dvdburners

also, we changed udev default permissions (groups: optical + audio)

without knowing the details (console output from xcdroast or k3b), i would guess that it is one of these troubles

Re: lost my usb cdwriter

I may be wrong, but give this a shot:

http://www.archlinux.org/news.php?skip=10

Some of you out there experienced that usb is not working anymore with 2.6.9 kernel.

Here the reason for it:
The usb host kernel parts are built as modules now
that means if you don't use hotplug daemon which loads these modules during startup, you have to load these modules in your r rc.conf module list.
The modules are:
ohci_hcd for usb1.0
uhci_hcd for usb1.0
ehci_hcd for usb2.0

try the right module you need

enjoy kernel 2.6.9
