Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

You guys are fast to reply... anyway, I figured it out in a roundabout way. I ran k3b as root and looked at what devices it probed for writer and reader devices (they're completely seperate physical drives, yes) and it found my CDRW, which was /dev/scd0, like I thought, and the DVD was /dev/hdd. Only thing now is how to give k3b full access to the devices so I can run it as a user... I bet that's a good search topic.
I was going to try just mounting /dev/hdd the first time, but that would have been too obvious so I never tried it...
That's almost as bad as when someone asked me how to check mail in local mailboxes:
Don't I feel retarded.
Thanks guys. Just goes to show that even if you can't help someone, you make them frustrated enough to look harder and find what they're looking for.

I am running Ubuntu 8.04.1 on acer aspire one and am having the same problems. Couldn't get acidrip or mplayer to run DVD. /dev/dvd didn't exist. I looked at properties of the DVD that popped up on desktop when I plugged in usb. Found it at /media/cdrom0 plugged that into acidrip and everything worked peachy!
