    Hello

    Since I upgraded to Oneiric Ocelot,the cd/dvd-drive doesn't work at all.The drawer doesn't open.I have a vintage Compaq presario r3000,and I'd be grateful for some tipps.

    Best regards:Reidar

    Perhaps you could give some more detail on this, as it's unusual for an old CD drive not to be supported.
    - has this drive ever responded under this 11.10 install?
    - does it respond when booting from a LiveCD?
    - can you get the drive tray to open by pressing the button on the drive?

    To get the drawer to open, try this:

    In a terminal, type eject, then press enter.

    That way works for me, but my DVD drive quit working no long ago (I now use an external drive), I can't use it, other than to only open and close it.
