#1 qpxtool won't detect a USB drive von igorert 26.11.2006 21:39

So here is my problem - I have a laptop with an internal DVD-RW drive that is not supported by qpxtool. I also connect an external NEC-3550A over USB. When qpxtool starts, it only detects the internal drive. pxcontrol and pioquiet with scan option won't detect the external NEC drive either; however, both work with the external drive just fine if it's specified explicitely on the command line, i.e.:

pioquiet -l
** PioQuiet v1.0 (c) Gennady "ShultZ" Kozlov **
** scaning IDE/SCSI bus...
[00] /dev/hda: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4082N HQ04
** Scan compleete: 1 device(s) found

but:

pioquiet -d /dev/cdrom
** PioQuiet v1.0 (c) Gennady "ShultZ" Kozlov **
Device : /dev/cdrom
Vendor : '_NEC '
Model : 'DVD_RW ND-3550A '
F/W : '1.Y6'
Serial#: 61*******

PioQuiet flags : DEVICE

PIONEER QuietMode not supported by selected drive!

So my question is: Is there any way to specify the DVD device to use on qpxtool's command line? If not, would it be possible to add such a capability? Is there any other way I can make it work with my external NEC drive for now?

And huge thanks for your work on this software!

there is no way to specify device in qpxtool command line (yet)
it seems /dev/cdrom is a symlink... what device it is realy?

most USB boxes uses usb-storage module, represents as /dev/srX and correctly detects by qpxtool

It's a /dev/scd0.

One thing I've just noticed is that lsusb segfaults on my system now (it used to work just a week ago, the darn thing). I've no idea if it's related to qpxtool not detecting the USB drive but I'll try to see why my lsusb is broken and if fixing it will affect qpxtool.

Hmm, adding /dev/scd0 to the _devtbl array in qpxtransport/include/qpx_mmc.h and re-compiling/installing seems to have fixed the issue - my USB drive is now detected properly and the PE/PIF test is running as I type

Just in case - I'm on a Fedora Core 6.
