    help getting second cd-rom working


    I have two DVD drives in my desktop computer. One (cdrom0) can write DVDs, and the other (cdrom1) only reads them. The only problem is, lately, when I put a DVD or CD in cdrom1, the CD doesn't seem to mount. Navigating to /media/cdrom1/ only shows a blank browser.

    Here is the relevant output of 'sudo lshw':

                    description: DVD reader
                    product: DVD-ROM GDR8164B
                    vendor: HL-DT-ST
                    physical id: 0.1.0
                    bus info: scsi@1:0.1.0
                    logical name: /dev/cdrom1
                    logical name: /dev/dvd1
                    logical name: /dev/scd1
                    logical name: /dev/sr1
                    version: 0L06
                    capabilities: removable audio dvd
                    configuration: ansiversion=5 status=ready
                       physical id: 0
                       logical name: /dev/cdrom1
    Can someone help me debug this? When I put a disc in cdrom0, an icon appears on my desktop, but this doesn't happen with cdrom1.

    I'm having the same problem. The first combo drive works fine as long as I don't hook up the new combo drive. When I have them linked together neither works. Both drives are set to Cable Select.

    I made the directory for the second drive but I can't even find any info for the fstab.
