CDROM driver configuration

Old CD-ROM drivers (not SCSI, not IDE)Edit

    • depends on ISA


  • Option: CD_NO_IDESCSI
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Support non-SCSI/IDE/ATAPI CDROM drives
      If you have a CD-ROM drive that is neither SCSI nor IDE/ATAPI, say Y here, otherwise N. Read the CD-ROM-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
      Note that the answer to this question doesn't directly affect the kernel: saying N will just cause the configurator to skip all the questions about these CD-ROM drives. If you are unsure what you have, say Y and find out whether you have one of the following drives.
      For each of these drivers, a <file:Documentation/cdrom/{driver_name}> exists. Especially in cases where you do not know exactly which kind of drive you have you should read there. Most of these drivers use a file drivers/cdrom/{driver_name}.h where you can define your interface parameters and switch some internal goodies.
      To compile these CD-ROM drivers as a module, choose M instead of Y.
      If you want to use any of these CD-ROM drivers, you also have to answer Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" below (this answer will get "defaulted" for you if you enable any of the Linux CD-ROM drivers).


  • Option: AZTCD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Aztech/Orchid/Okano/Wearnes/TXC/CyDROM CDROM support
    • depends on CD_NO_IDESCSI
      This is your driver if you have an Aztech CDA268-01A, Orchid CD-3110, Okano or Wearnes CDD110, Conrad TXC, or CyCD-ROM CR520 or CR540 CD-ROM drive. This driver -- just like all these CD-ROM drivers -- is NOT for CD-ROM drives with IDE/ATAPI interfaces, such as Aztech CDA269-031SE. Please read the file <file:Documentation/cdrom/aztcd>.
      If you say Y here, you should also say Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" below, because that's the file system used on CD-ROMs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called aztcd.


  • Option: GSCD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Goldstar R420 CDROM support
    • depends on CD_NO_IDESCSI
      If this is your CD-ROM drive, say Y here. As described in the file <file:Documentation/cdrom/gscd>, you might have to change a setting in the file <file:drivers/cdrom/gscd.h> before compiling the kernel. Please read the file <file:Documentation/cdrom/gscd>.
      If you say Y here, you should also say Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" below, because that's the file system used on CD-ROMs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called gscd.


  • Option: SBPCD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Matsushita/Panasonic/Creative, Longshine, TEAC CDROM support
    • depends on CD_NO_IDESCSI && BROKEN_ON_SMP
      This driver supports most of the drives which use the Panasonic or Sound Blaster interface. Please read the file <file:Documentation/cdrom/sbpcd>.
      The Matsushita CR-521, CR-522, CR-523, CR-562, CR-563 drives (sometimes labeled "Creative"), the Creative Labs CD200, the Longshine LCS-7260, the "IBM External ISA CD-ROM" (in fact a CR-56x model), the TEAC CD-55A fall under this category. Some other electrically compatible drives (Vertos, Genoa, some Funai models) are currently not supported; for the Sanyo H94A drive currently a separate driver (asked later) is responsible. Most drives have a uniquely shaped faceplate, with a caddyless motorized drawer, but without external brand markings. The older CR-52x drives have a caddy and manual loading/eject, but still no external markings. The driver is able to do an extended auto-probing for interface addresses and drive types; this can help to find facts in cases you are not sure, but can consume some time during the boot process if none of the supported drives gets found. Once your drive got found, you should enter the reported parameters into <file:drivers/cdrom/sbpcd.h> and set "DISTRIBUTION 0" there.
      This driver can support up to four CD-ROM controller cards, and each card can support up to four CD-ROM drives; if you say Y here, you will be asked how many controller cards you have. If compiled as a module, only one controller card (but with up to four drives) is usable.
      If you say Y here, you should also say Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" below, because that's the file system used on CD-ROMs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called sbpcd.


  • Option: MCDX
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Mitsumi CDROM support
    • depends on CD_NO_IDESCSI
      Use this driver if you want to be able to use your Mitsumi LU-005, FX-001 or FX-001D CD-ROM drive.
      Please read the file <file:Documentation/cdrom/mcdx>.
      If you say Y here, you should also say Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" below, because that's the file system used on CD-ROMs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called mcdx.


  • Option: OPTCD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Optics Storage DOLPHIN 8000AT CDROM support
    • depends on CD_NO_IDESCSI
      This is the driver for the 'DOLPHIN' drive with a 34-pin Sony compatible interface. It also works with the Lasermate CR328A. If you have one of those, say Y. This driver does not work for the Optics Storage 8001 drive; use the IDE-ATAPI CD-ROM driver for that one. Please read the file <file:Documentation/cdrom/optcd>.
      If you say Y here, you should also say Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" below, because that's the file system used on CD-ROMs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called optcd.


  • Option: CM206
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Philips/LMS CM206 CDROM support
    • depends on CD_NO_IDESCSI && BROKEN_ON_SMP
      If you have a Philips/LMS CD-ROM drive cm206 in combination with a cm260 host adapter card, say Y here. Please also read the file <file:Documentation/cdrom/cm206>.
      If you say Y here, you should also say Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" below, because that's the file system used on CD-ROMs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called cm206.


  • Option: SJCD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Sanyo CDR-H94A CDROM support
    • depends on CD_NO_IDESCSI
      If this is your CD-ROM drive, say Y here and read the file <file:Documentation/cdrom/sjcd>. You should then also say Y or M to ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support below, because that's the file system used on CD-ROMs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called sjcd.


  • Option: ISP16_CDI
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) ISP16/MAD16/Mozart soft configurable cdrom interface support
    • depends on CD_NO_IDESCSI
      These are sound cards with built-in cdrom interfaces using the OPTi 82C928 or 82C929 chips. Say Y here to have them detected and possibly configured at boot time. In addition, You'll have to say Y to a driver for the particular cdrom drive you have attached to the card. Read <file:Documentation/cdrom/isp16> for details.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called isp16.


  • Option: CDU31A
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Sony CDU31A/CDU33A CDROM support
    • depends on CD_NO_IDESCSI && BROKEN_ON_SMP
      These CD-ROM drives have a spring-pop-out caddyless drawer, and a rectangular green LED centered beneath it. NOTE: these CD-ROM drives will not be auto detected by the kernel at boot time; you have to provide the interface address as an option to the kernel at boot time as described in <file:Documentation/cdrom/cdu31a> or fill in your parameters into <file:drivers/cdrom/cdu31a.c>. Try "man bootparam" or see the documentation of your boot loader (lilo or loadlin) about how to pass options to the kernel.
      If you say Y here, you should also say Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" below, because that's the file system used on CD-ROMs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called cdu31a.


  • Option: CDU535
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Sony CDU535 CDROM support
    • depends on CD_NO_IDESCSI
      This is the driver for the older Sony CDU-535 and CDU-531 CD-ROM drives. Please read the file <file:Documentation/cdrom/sonycd535>.
      If you say Y here, you should also say Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" below, because that's the file system used on CD-ROMs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called sonycd535.
