I'm using the following command,
cdrecord -vvv -dao -multi video.isoThis is under Linux, with the Debian distribution, kernel 2.4.26, AMD 32 bit cpu. After issuing that command cdrecord starts to see scsi timeouts and I'm unable to use the CD drive until I reboot. I've tried to have cdrecord tell the drive to eject, I've tried pressing the eject button, I've tried reading the cd (as it is blank media I wouldn't expect it to work), without any response. The light on the outside of the drive is solid green.
I hope is that someone at Plextor could verify the condition and could issue an updated firmware where the drive will no longer hang in this condition.
I have a no-name cd-burner that issues a Check Condition and doesn't lock up.
I attached some of the kernel message output and output of cdrecord when the error happened.
I'm putting this e-mail up on my web page
so anyone else having the same problem will be able to find it.
