    cd rom drive worked on 9.04 but not in 9.10 ?

    hi, i had Ubuntu 9.04 installed on my Mac Mini G4 system and have now burned and updated to 9.10, the cd rom drive is not detected upon reboot and install from live cd, dont have a clue why it worked in 9.04 and not 9.10 after reboot from live cd install.

    thanks in advance

    Can you start from a different livecd? If no bootable cds work, it may be an Apple-efi bug. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1090160

    dont think thats the solution, im trying to say that i have installed 9.10 but after it is installed to the hard drive and run from there it can not see any cd or dvd in the drive, the fstab file is the same configuration as it was when i was running 9.04 which i have now downgraded too for now because i need the cd rom drive for dvds and audio cds.

    same problem and also on Mac Mini G4. Got audio/music CDs to load by installing *CD Player 2.0.0*, but DVDs are no go. The CD/DVD drive itself is detected on boot, but it seems it's always "empty" when you insert a DVD. These are the specs detected:

    I'll probably mess with it for a few more hours and if no success then I'll try Fedora 12 for PPC and see if I have any better luck.

    Re: cd rom drive worked on 9.04 but not in 9.10 ?

    I've just installed 9.10 on my eMac. Everything seems to work just great but no DVD/CD drive. I put in a data dvd and the system won't open it. All I can get is the option to format the disk.
    I was going to replace the drive, it is old and won't open on it's own anymore, but I see this is an Ubuntu issue.
    It would be great to get this resolved.

    By the way, this is my first Ubuntu.

    It sounds like a serious bug in Karmic's ppc version.

    It's not only ppc apparently, searching through the forums I found this one:

    Yes. Karmic runs perfectly on my Intel PC notebook with no CD/DVD problems. It seems it's just PPC version (and maybe AMD too). Loading Fedora 12 for PPC just to see if CD/DVD works there.

    Couldn't resolve the CD/DVD automount problem in the 9.10 for PPC. Fedora 12 for PPC ... same issue as Karmic plus it's much slower than Ubuntu at least on this MacMini G4. For some reason I couldn't boot up from Ubuntu 9.04 CD ... maybe a damaged media. However, I loaded the latest Debian 5.0.3 for PPC (lenny) and no problems whatsoever. All media is mounting correctly. I'm still puzzled tho why the 9.10 is working perfectly fine on my Intel PC notebook (ASUS G1) but has this media recognition problem in the PPC version.

    I have the same issue. Karmic does not recognize my laptops cd/dvd drive. I had to install karmic from an external usb disk.
    The cd/dvd does not shows up on fstab
