    Exclamation No DVD mounted in Studio 12.04

    hi everyboy,
    recently, I re-install ubuntu to clean the system and re-start from zero.
    but this time, I used Ubuntu Studio 12.04 with a Acer Aspire 7520.
    This time, everything goes perfect, wifi, usb, installation, hard-drive partition, etc... with the exception of the DVDrom drive, that it isn't recognize.

    I pasted the result:
    sudo lshw |grep dvd;lshw | grep cd
    WARNING: you should run this program as super-user.

    configuration: driver=ehci_hcd latency=0 maxlatency=1 mingnt=3
    WARNING: output may be incomplete or inaccurate, you should run this program as super-user.

    does someone can help/support me?

    Many thanks in advance,

    You should use this command
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C disk
    Copy here the cdrom section.

    Does the drive shows up in BIOS?

    I've checked the BIOS, nothing appears.
    nevertheless, I try to boot with a WXP SP1 & SP3, and nothing also.

    it maybe the drive? something not well connected?

    thanks,

    If the DVD drive does not shows up in BIOS, than it can't be expected to show up in OS.
    Check the cables, change the drive if necessery.

    it's a laptop, difficult, due to everything is smaller than in a desktop.
    I will try anyway, if I found something in the net.

    thousand thanks,
