[SOLVED] Cd rom Drive

Post by ClapTrap »

When trying load a cd/dvd mint 11 doesnt or cant recognize the dev/sr0. When in terminal and using lsusb this is the following output.http://pastebin.com/WQfdqx0y as you can see the cd/dvd rom isnt listed. Same with inxi -F http://pastebin.com/Z9wxqqcU. But when typing in dmesg|grep Sr0 its listed. http://pastebin.com/zJAQCncU How can I get mint 11 to see it and be able to access it.

inxi didn't get support for showing cd/dvd devices until recently.

You have to run the latest inxi (sudo inxi -U), the one in mint is way out of date now.

Code: Select all

inxi -Idx

-d extends -D to show cd/dvd information, and the -x shows a bit more data about each drive.
