Thumbs down Ubuntu, Liteon 1633s won't r/w CDs


My liteon 1633s DVD burner will not reconize any CD media blank, burned or pre recorded.
No Problem with DVD's

it is in an older HP pavillian 7845 piii 866
I am running k/ubuntu in that I started with ubuntu and updated to kubuntu and then switched back to gnome

any ideas?

What command are you running? I'll suspect you are attempting to mount an audio CD, but since they lack a valid file system, the mount operation is unnecessary. In contrast, if you are dealing with a data CD, you would have to mount it. Lastly, if you put a blank CD into the drive, there would be nothing to be recognized. -- J.W.

No CD of any kind is reconized by this drive since I installed Ubuntu.
when I try to burn a CD using k3b or nautilus I get a no media result.

#mount /dev/hdc /media/Cdrom0
with any Data CD burned or pressed
Returns
mount: No medium found

I have no problems with any DVD, burning or mounting all DVD's work great

What kernel are you running? If it's 2.4.x, you may need to manually add the "append hdc=ide-scsi" boot option, or perhaps to manually mopdprobe the ide-scsi module

mopdprobe???

I did read something about treating the CD as a scsi drive but what I saw did not make any sense to me so I did not do it.

FYI: I have only been using linux for about 2 months now.
but I have a lot of other forgotten system experience inluding CPM, unix and linux

so be patient with me please

Thank you
