Hi Justin

Try cdrecord -v speed=8 dev=/dev/cd0d test.img

Use the d partition instead of the a.

Well just when you think you are out of the woods. I tried it again and
the drive seems like it picks up then cdrecord errors out. Here is the

cdrecord -v speed=8 dev=/dev/cd0a test.img
Cdrecord 1.9 (i386-unknown-netbsd1.5) Copyright (C) 1995-2000 Jo"rg
TOC Type: 1 = CD-ROM
scsidev: '/dev/cd0a'
devname: '/dev/cd0a'
scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
cdrecord: Invalid argument. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you
are root.

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
