I noticed that people were talking about CD-R's earlier on this list, so
maybe somebody out there has gone through this and can help me out:

I've got an HP 4020i CD-R drive, and I can't write CD's with it.  I'm
using cdrecord from the pkg system, compiled a couple days ago, and a
kernel I compiled from the 1.3 sources on  SCSI controller
is an AIC-6360, and I've unplugged all other SCSI devices from it.  This
is an i386, BTW.

I linked /dev/scgx -> /dev/cd0d (cd0 is successfully attached at boot
time, and I can use the drive as a normal CD-ROM via this).

Cdrecord can successfully inquire (-inq) and identify (-checkdrive), but
it won't actually write anything.  It sits for a few minutes, then it says
"CD-Recorder not ready."  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
