I have an old CD-R/W IDE drive, HP CD-Writer 9300i (firmware: 1.0c), and  
I'm expecting problems using it on applications like cdrecord (SCSI  
emulation by using ATAPICAM).

I'm using FreeBSD 5.2.1-p8, and even sending a simple blank-CD command  
(blank=fast, blank=all, no matter the kind of blank command), I got a  
kernel panic. On FreeBSD 5.0 & 5.1, these problems never occoured.

Using burncd, I can burn everything without any problem (as expected, not  
using ATAPICAM), but I want to use cdrecord to write audio CDs using DAO  
recording method, since I want to backup some live CDs that I own.

I know that burncd supports DAO writing mode, but passing the -d switch  
gives me an error (the recorder refuses the cue sheet and aborts the  

Anybody here is getting this kind of problem using IDE CD-R/W drives?  Any  
possible solutions?

Thanks in advance,
