Over the last week or so I have been trying many, many distributions to find one that I like and can "settle down" with.
This is *almost* the perfect distro for me, but I am having an issue that is rather a show stopper.
Once loaded (live from dvd or after installed on hdd), it simply does not recognize my dvd drives (I have 2 internal).
The drives work 100% fine, the discs are 100% fine. While the live dvd is booted, the file manager shows the Mint KDE DVD, but not the other drive.
Once I load to hdd and boot, neither DVD drive shows up. If I put in any disk, nothing happens.
I've tried to mount them manually etc, no luck.
This has not happened with any of the (numerous) other distros I've tried, including other flavors of Mint.
All of the others detect both drives and show them automagically.
