I'm using 10.4 Lucid,long term support and will soon change to 12.4 long term support.
Last night,I used K3B(on a 32 bit machine) to burn an image of the 12.4 amd 64 long term support onto a DVD. It burned the image and checked everything,resulting in a perfect copy. I made an image of the 64 because I want to put it on a different computer.
This morning,the Lite-on player will not recognize disks. Nothing is displayed on the gnome desk top.
I restated and tried again,no luck.
I powered down,opened up the case and reconnected everything,no luck.
The system IS recognizing my sound card. I can play fm radio just fine.
When I press the button on the Lite-on player,the green pilot light comes on,the tray opens,accepts the disk,and then closes when I press the button. It does nothing but about ten seconds later,the green pilot light goes off.
I get the same result with recorded CD-R,blank CD-R,recorded DVD-R and blank DVD-R disks.
What should I try next?
