That's what I meant to say; that it was a device in the kernel:

k3b sounds like something under KDE; but ISTM that neither Grip nor
XMMS are crap. Also in my experience, if atapicam is a kernel device,
the Plextor I have is completely useless. Without atapicam as a
device, the Plextor works for a variety of tasks.

I wonder if atapi-cam.c interacts, in my setup and in some way, with
some other kernel device and so makes it appear that atapicam is the
source of the problem?
