View Full Version : [ubuntu] 9.10 won't let me access CD

November 25th, 2009, 02:06 AM
I installed ubuntu 9.10 onto a dell pc that used to be an office pc. it has a modular cd rom drive bay. after i installed everything from a dvd, i tried to get my wireless adapter to work. but whenever i tried to access the package i needed on the disc, it wouldn't let me access the cd to install it.

also, now that i've installed ubuntu, it won't boot from the cd with the ubuntu cd in either.

should i try to redo it with a windows disc so the mbr will be fixed or what?

never mind, it's not a software problem. after some fiddling, i realized that the cd drive wasn't working properly, i've had that problem before, so i'll find a workaround.
