I am running Ubuntu 8.10 kernel 2.6.27-9 on a Sony Vaio VGN-NS11S laptop. My problem is the following:
CDs/DVDs are mounted only when a CD has been in the drive during boot
When a CD is in the drive during boot
- boot stalls while the CD is accessed and several error messages appear, something about dev sr0 and then
Buffered I/O error ...(or similar)boot then continues normally
- CD is mounted, mount output:
/dev/scd0 on /media/CDNAME type iso9660 (ro,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=1000,utf8)
- on removal of CD: CD-RW-/DVD+-RW-Laufwerk is in nautilus device list
- other CDs that are inserted are mounted alright
When no CD is in drive during boot and a CD is inserted
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0commenting this out has no effect.
I'd be very grateful for any help.
