That is different (VLC program, media video player with included codecs) from not seeing the device via the OS
--and you already have installed VLC correctly, yes or not?
As well, you don't indicate yet why the device is not seen by the OS
In a terminal
- Code: Select all
ls -l /dev/dvd
--all OS detected devices..
If it is really not being detected, no LED is showing when the system boots, then I would be checking the hardware, specifically that the cabling for that device is correctly attached (making a good electrical connection) between itself and the mainboard of your system (ribbon cable, usually)..ubuntu, file system mounts..https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstabhttps://ubuntugenius.wordpress.com/2010 ... in-ubuntu/
Another way to do it is simply browse through the subfolders in /media (or could even be /mnt on older systems) until you find the one that shows your disc (you’ll need to have one in the drive, of course).
