Have just successfully re-installed Ubuntu 8.04 and when i took the installation disc out of the drive and booted into Ubuntu the first thing i saw was an image of a disc on the screen called Blank Disc. The CD drive does not open up either?

and....? Does it now work fine? Typically one right clicks to eject cds if the tray will not open otherwise.

Hello Daveth
There is definately no disk in the drive but i have still tried "right click and eject" to see if that would work, it don't! The CD drive just won't respond, although when i decided to re-install i had to enter the BIOS to change the boot sequence and the drive worked perfectly then? Thanks for the reply.

Have now un-installed Ubuntu 8.04 and installed Linux Mint 4.0 instead. Now everything works perfectly?
