I managed to get a 1 year old DELL PC working as the old HD failed. I bought a new SATA 160Gig HD and installed to in the PC. I Loded the Mint disk and insalled Mint without any problems. However when checking my 'computer' by clicking on the computer pic top left it shows just 2 drives, The 1st is CD-RW/DVD-RW Drive, the other is Filesystem.
I have 1x CD Rom fitted to the PC and a DVDRW fitted as a 2nd drive. When i click on the DVDRW drive i get 'Unable to mount Media' Warning window. It also says 'There is probably no media in the drive'....so i put a disc into the DVDRW drive and it says the same thing. I click on eject in the drop down menu (right click) and it says the same error message again.
So i put the disc (has MP3's on it by the way!' in the CD Drive anda pic of a disc appears and a new window pops up with the content.
Does this mean that the CD ROM drive is fine but it cant see the CDRW drive? Or what?
The CD Drive is the 1st drive on the ribbon in my PC. I would like to burn CD's so if 2 drives won't work then i would be happy with just the DVDRW. BUT i would like both if poss.
What should i do?
Many thanks in advance.
