View Full Version : [ubuntu] cd/dvd drive failing to mount

July 27th, 2009, 04:56 AM
Hi All! Currently, my dvd drive won't recognize when I put a cd in, and when I try to force it to mount it says there is no media in the drive. I found some suggestions on what to poke via the terminal to figure out what's wrong, so I tried some of them, but I really don't know how to interpret the data. I've pasted that below. This all started when I was trying to make ubuntu run restricted dvds and I installed a bunch of stuff via the command line (which probably was a mistake given my lack of experience). I've also noticed people referring to "media" as if it is a folder or location in my home folder where all might be revealed, but I can't find anything called media in any of the pulldown menus:confused:. Any insight would be awesome!
