mystified Posted June 12, 2007 Report Share Posted June 12, 2007 I tried to burn a dvd .iso yesterday and k3b couldn't find my device. So I tried from command line and it also said it couldn't detect a burner. This is on my laptop and I don't think I've ever tried to burn anything with it before but it's only a year old and I don't think it's bad. Here are some things I checked. debian:/home/mystified# ls -la /dev/dvd lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2007-06-11 14:56 /dev/dvd -> hdc debian:/home/mystified# dmesg | grep DVD hdc: PHILIPS CD-RW/DVD-ROM SCB5265, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive hdc: ATAPI 24X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33) Here's the interesting part. I tried to manually mount a data dvd and I got an error message that line 9 was bad. Here's my /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hda5 / reiserfs notail 0 1 /dev/hda7 /home reiserfs defaults 0 2 /dev/hda6 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0 /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat auto,umask=o o o 0 Line 9 is my windows partition. So I tried to mount /mnt/windows and it said it didn't exist in fstab. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
