Using ATAPI devices on SUSE Linux
=================================

Since the recent SUSE Linux distributions use Linux kernel 2.6,
the only supported interface is the new ATA interface. Therefore
the recommended way of running cdrecord is:

wodim dev=/dev/cdrecorder

and for scanning devices:

wodim -devices


The original way of specifying the device with dev=x,y,z or dev=ATA:x,y,z
and scanning devices with cdrecord -scanbus is kept only for compatibility
with cdrecord.

Please don't use ide-scsi or dev=ATAPI. These kernel interfaces 
are obsolete and unmaintained.
