Subject: Re: extra bytes written to SATA DVD drive on kernel 2.6.23 till 2.6.24.2
Date: Fri, 29 Feb 2008 22:59:11 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <200802292259.12047.gml@inode.at> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1204183844.10161.57.camel@homer.simson.net>

The oldest kernel that i tried is now 2.6.18 and behaves the same as all the 
others up to 2.6.24.2.
I did the tests on 2.6.18 in runlevel 1 with only udevd running to make sure 
no other program is sending any commands to the drive.

I am suspicious about the LG hardware as well so i hooked it to the friendly 
windows pc in the neighborhood but it works quite well there.

The SATA port the LG drive is connected to, was previously occupied by a 
maxtor harddrive and did it's work without troubles.

Does anybody know a possible meaning of the byte sequence
2a 00 00 00 00 80 00 00  40 00 00 00 00 80 00 00
in the context of scsi dvd writing
 
Regards
Gerold
