booting into hp nx 6110 laptop


hp nx 6110 does not see dvd (linux lite 1.0.0) nor
does it see the latest mint.Have newer machine that sees both.
Do I detect that linux is doing away with supporting older mavhines?
Any advice?
Thank you,
JIM

What do you mean with "does not see dvd"?
Please be more verbose what exactly is (not) happening, also please be more specific on the hardware in that machine.

Sorry about-let me try again'
Have mint 12 and it works just fine. When the dvd is inserted and the machine boots
it boots to the dvd-then it trys to detect dvd(you can hear it trying to detect something)
after about 3-4 trys, it boots to mint 12 by-passing the dvd and loads mint 12.The rom drive is cd/rw-dvd/r.

Can you access the content of the DVD when Mint 12 has booted?
Do any other DVDs work (ruling out that the drive itself is faulty)?
