Ubuntu 10.04 does not see blank disc
I am having some issues with my cd drive. I have Ubuntu 10.04 with the latest updates as of today. I put a blank disc in my drive and it never shows up. I have tried multiple blank disc with no luck.
If I put an already burned disc like a disc with Arch on it, I can see the disc with no problems. I am not sure of the best way to trouble shoot this or which logs I should be looking through to find out some more information /var/log/?
If any one can help me get over this bump it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
**Solved** - Bad Spindle of Disk
After trying a bunch of disc, I decided to grab a different spindle of another brand of disc (HP) and had no problems. I must have a bad batch of these Memorex disk. This sucks because I have about 100 of dumb things that don't work on my ubuntu machine or my wifes windows machine.
