SubjectRe: vmware 2.0.3, kernel 2.4.0 and a cdrom

I have the same problem. But if I say my CD-RW is the cdrom all works as
expected (/dev/scd1).

Also the capabilities aren't correct I think:

Jan 14 21:26:31 worf kernel: sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 0x/0x writer cd/rw caddy

for my CDROM; it is a TEAC-CDROM without caddy, but tray and has a
read-speed of 42. It is NOT a writer.

The writer seems to be recognized correctly (again a TEAC-CDRW):

Jan 14 21:26:31 worf kernel: sr1: scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/24x writer cd/rw
xa/form2 cdda tray

Only the write-speed isn't correct (it can only write 8x not 24x)

As I have no time in the moment to dig this down further, I just write
this for information.

Btw I'm using kernel 2.4.0 with reiserfs and NVIDIA patch.
