rogerh Posted March 15, 2012 Report Share Posted March 15, 2012 Hello, I am having trouble accessing my 'new' sata DVD burner - Pioneer DVR-215d. When I put in a disk, there is no indication of media being added (the USB type indicator in the icon bar at the bottom right of the KDE screen). I was able to manually mount the burner and read a CD today (but with read only capability), so I think it is my etc/fstab which I set up via the Control Center config tool for the CD/DVD burner. Could well be that I botched the setup - I used the advanced option, and now I cannot get back to the default setting. In any case, my etc/fstab is : for /dev/sda1 : UUID=c62375e0-359b-4cc0-9851-50b1facfcae0 / ext4 acl,relatime 1 1 # Entry for /dev/sda6 : UUID=f0aa3e2c-febd-4caf-a01a-f891199cf8d2 /home ext4 acl,relatime 1 2 /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=utf8 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,exec,flush 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 # Entry for /dev/sda5 : UUID=76dfb0f9-fe29-4c1e-96ae-582e7c88d416 swap swap defaults 0 0 I'm guessing that I need to edit the /dev/sr0 line to include rw and auto (and maybe change user to users). Would this resolve my access issue? I did check write access in the advanced options of the configuration tool, as well as unchecked 'noauto', and clicked 'save to fstab', but after mounting the burner I ran 'mount' in console and it indicates ro and noauto for the burner. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. I am certainly no expert at this (obviously)......
