I had a lot of trouble getting my ide cd writer working too. If you've
re-compiled your kernel recently then you should take a look at this howto.
I followed it and it solved my problems. I just tried to open the page and I'm
getting connection refused. Could be a problem with our internet proxy (as
it's quite crappy, MS Proxy server). I did however save that page for
reference so I've included the main points below. If you've already covered
this then I'm afraid I can't be of much more help except that I noticed you
used /dev/sg0. You could try /dev/scd0 (which works for me) or /dev/sr0.
Can you mount a cd from /dev/sg0?
Under BLOCK DEVICES go with your usual defaults, NOTE the following:
Disable CDROM support, enable SCSI emulation support.
Under SCSI Support:
Enable SCSI support, SCSI CDROM support, Enable vendor-specific extensions,
and SCSI generic support. You can modularize these as I have, or add them in
full (select y instead of m). Further down in the above menu is SCSI low-level
drivers --->. Go in here and disable any and all SCSI controller card support
(default unconfigured kernel has one of the NCR cards enabled, select n for it).
Make sure no other cards are enabled. Exit the kernel configuration, saving the
options. Compile and install kernel.
Hope this helps,
