View Full Version : [ubuntu] 2 DVD Burners not working - lucid

June 14th, 2010, 08:19 PM
Recently I installed Lucid (for the second time).

Reason, after less than a month both my internal IDE dvd burners [HP dvd840 & a sony dvd burner with no initial model# that I can identify] magically stopped being recognized by the OS. At the POST screen I can see both devices though and when tested on a separate box that I have they both seem to work great. I initially was using Karmic and had no problems with them ever. I upgraded my karmic install to lucid got the issue then did full wipe n reinstall of lucid and now its happened again 2 days after my re-installation.

One other thing of note... before my drives disappeared[after the update from karmic] I installed k3b..and when I tried running it I got the message HAL not running ... and then they stopped being recognized. On the second install I didn't bother installing k3b.

Suggestions/Help/Feedback much appreciated.
