DVD Drives SOLVED!

Post by Palladini » Thu Sep 05, 2019 11:41 pm

I have 2 DVD Drives in this computer, running Linux Mint 19.2 Tina Cinnamon, that Linux Mint does not recognize. If I open My Computer it sees them, as seen in this pic Folder - https://photos.app.goo.gl/FGGVpgU4SYpbcuqx8

And before I did this, maybe 3 minutes before, I put 2 fresh, unused DVDs into the two Disk Drives. Notice the Last Picture, I double clicked on ISO image and that showed up

How would I get my computer to recognize my DVD drives?

Please open a terminal and run the following command:

Code: Select all

lsusb
Mark the complete text output which the command will display with your mouse.
Press the keyboard shortcut <Shift><Ctrl>C to copy the marked text into the clipboard.
Enclose the results between the code markers by selecting </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply then paste <Ctrl>V them in your reply between the code markers.

The results will help us to help you.

Hi Palladini,

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

Your system is recognizing the 2 optical drives (CD/DVD drives) that you have according to the results of the "inxi -d" command. Note that the first CD/DVD drive is not a DVD burner writer (sr0) and can only burn CD discs, but the second DVD/CD drive (sr1) is a DVD burner writer that can burn DVD and CD discs. Also note that mechanical drives do wear out over time.

That is strange behavior, this could simply be a permissions issues where adding yourself to the cdrom user group will solve (see link below), or if you mean physically opening "My computer" which could be that your computer has a loose connection when closed, or there is a switch or some sort of sensor, case sensor, that is not working right. You can also make sure there is no Bios security or other settings preventing the use of the DVD/CD drives. Never check connections while the computer is powered on. I have an ancient small Dell OptiPlex 780 usff computer that has a case button sensor where the computer will not work unless the case is put back perfectly.

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

The two most popular DVD/CD applications are "xfburn" and "K3b". "Xfburn" works well. I prefer "K3b" because it has more features, but in Linux Mint 19.x to get "K3b" working properly requires some additional initial setup and configuration, see link below and my replies in it, afterward, reboot your computer and "K3b" should work well from then on.

Hi Palladini,

I do not see anything wrong with the results of the "inxi -Fxzd" console terminal command, so that is a good thing.

Try the instructions from my previous link on installing "K3b" including adding your user to the cdrom group and giving permissions and see if that does not resolve your issues. Remember that you must use your second DVD drive to burn DVD discs.

Hope this helps ...

Re: DVD Drives

Post by Palladini » Sat Sep 07, 2019 8:27 am

I switched out my drive that was reporting as CD Drive and installed another DVD drive I had. I used K3B and burnt a DVD. One Problem with the burn, it plays the start fine, but only the Audio worked, no video was to be seen. I determined what I need to do, is run all those 68 files through Kdenlive and render them out as MPEG 2 files and see if that works.

Thank You to all who helped me

Hi Palladini,

You are welcome from all of us that replied...

Per your other post, are you using one of the DVD authoring applications to create the DVD, if so, which one?

Keep in mind that you may want to limit the burning of the DVD to 4x speed to be compatible with most DVD players.
