    Today, following the instructions "How to Back Up & Restore Your Installed Ubuntu Packages With APTonCD"

    I have re-formatted my drive with ext4 as /sda1 is / and about 20gig, /sda2 is /home and about 360gig and /swap which is 8gig.

    I have re-installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) and performed all the updates, restricted drivers)


    I have tried to use the DVD created with APTonCD to Restore the packages it backed up. It will not "find" the optical drive.

    I receive the following after being told to put the DVD in the drive.

    E: Unable to stat the mount point /media/cdrom/ - stat (2: No such file or directory)
    E: Unable to stat the mount point /media/cdrom/ - stat (2: No such file or directory)
    E: Failed to mount the cdrom.

    W: Unable to read /etc/apt/sources.list.d/apt.conf.d/ - DirectoryExists (2: No such file or directory)

    I then tried following these post about the foregoing stat - mount error.


    I added the cd-rom to the fstab, etc etc -- nothing worked. I added and then removed the cd from the Synaptic Repos, trying to get my work together.

    I'm at my wits end. I have posted the packages that aptoncd burned to a dvd, here.
    AMD Athlon II X4 620, 4gig ddr2-800, m/b MSI K9N6PGM2, 1T SATA, EVGA 9500GT, Brother MFC-240C prntr, LG DVD-rom GSA-H55N

    Verify that the DVD you made is good. Is the DVD recognized in other computers? Does your computer mount other DVDs?

    Some people use the burnable cd in a store drive mode. This means a user piles up the data on the cd and closes the cd when it is full or they want to distribute it. I think it was called UDF file format.
    I am just a captian of the sea of data in my own mind.
