View Full Version : [other] CD Drive not detected

April 22nd, 2009, 08:07 PM
This has been puzzling me for a while now so I thought I'd make a topic on it :KS

My (secondary) dvd writer is not being recognised whenever I put a disk in (whether it is a cd, dvd, or writeable optical media) it seems to whir but neither vlc nor dolphin can open the contents

Running vlc from a terminal gives:
[00000406] dvdread demux error: DVDRead cannot open source: /dev/sr0
[00000409] main access error: no access module matched "dvd"
[00000405] main input error: open of `dvd:///dev/sr0' failed: could not create access: no access module matched "dvd"

It does not work in windows either but the BIOS picks it up at boot and recognises that it is in sATA channel 1. The model is Optiarc AD 7200-S and it is on firmware 1.0A

Have you Tried booting a Live CD
Or Tried in another machine?

If you have done those and still don't work it's most likely gone to drive heaven.

If there such a place it would probably be too full of Floppy drive's to fit anything else in lol.
