General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SBPCD:

Help text

This driver supports most of the drives which use the Panasonic or Sound Blaster interface. Please read the 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 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.
