About the writer I can now see it and I guess use it. Not tried yet.
The problems were :
- atapicam not loaded --> not detected by cdrecord
- bad rights on device files --> not detected by k3b with the non-root user after cdrecord detected it with root
About the reader, guys dont waste your time on that unless you are seriously interested in making it working. I mean the ATA chipset on the P5Q MB is some marvell chipset wich is not supposed to be supported in 7.0. So now that I can use the writer the fact that I can't use the reader is not a priority at all. Lucky me I have no IDE HD.
In the same story the onboard GB lan is not usable too with 7.0 and I had to add a PCI network card.
I guess I had to better triple check the hardware support before choosing the P5Q MB but since it was build around a not so new P45 chipset I assumed all should be working ok. Wrong guess but until 7.1 or 8.0 I can live with the add-on lan card and only the writer.
