History: I have a Pioneer DVR-110D drive which supports all media. When I
plug it in, the usb_storage module instantaneously loads and the drive is set
to go. The prob lies in the fact that when I am in the midst of burning a
regular DVD-R ---and occasionally a DVD-RW--- the drive suddenly is
disconnected [apparently] by the kernel, from what I've noted in the logs.
No errors (w/the exception of the i/o error k3b reports), just summarily
disconnected. That, of course, trashes a DVD-R. Bottom line is I have to
revert to XP to burn all DVDs to avoid expensive coasters. This phenomenon
happens on both Breezy & Dapper & I am wearying of it. The latest Breezy
kernel is so bad as to not even let me burn at all.
Question: If I was to roll my own kernel, what would the odds be that the
module stays loaded & the drive does not disconnect?? The drive is connected
via a USB --> IDE interface which seems to be solid, otherwise (i.e., HDs).
Opinions, please! :-) (Should I file a bug on the kernel, perhaps??)
