View Full Version : [ubuntu] DVD-drive missing

April 7th, 2009, 03:13 PM

I am a new user of Ubuntu. My Fujitsu-Siemens laptop is set up
to dual boot Win XP & Ubuntu 8.10. In nautilus, sometimes DVD drive is missing. In System log, I come across with these messages:

"Apr 7 15:00:22 ata2.00: model number mismatch '_NEC DVD+/-RW ND-6500A' != '_NEC DVD+^O-RW'"
"Apr 7 15:00:27 ata2.00: soft resetting link"

Editing /boot/grub/menu.lst with ACPI=OFF doesn't help. Is there a fix to
that bug?
