Hi,

I will describe the problem as following: it just stopped working.

I have an ASUS quiettrack cd/dvd writer and it completely stopped working.

What can I do to check its functionality on ubuntu?

Hi,

If you can still power it up and connect it to your system, running

dmesg

in the terminal after a reboot might give you an error message. That would be an easier place to start investigating.


If it simply won't power up, I'd say there's nothing you can do.
