The problem now is that the Gear sw will not see my PLEXTOR PX-W1210S CD-R. The Gear sw only detects the HP 305 DVD ROM. Both devices are claimed by sdisk driver but they are on different SCSI HBAs. Do I have to install a special driver?

The configscsi script is limited to only 4 busses (0 thru 3) and is most likely missing your second HBA. But this can be easily fixed.

With your favorite text editor open the ".configscsi" file which is located in /usr/geargui/bin. Find the "make_scsidevfiles203" function. In this function you will see the line "for bus in 0 1 2 3; do" - change this line to "for bus in 0 1 2 3 4 5 6; do". Save the file. Run the script again and the required additional device files should be created.
