external DVD writer
My Lacie external (USB) DVD writer has stopped being recognized by Redhat 8. I installed this by myself last November, but in typical fashion, totally forgot how I did it. CDRecord-ProDVD and CDrecordwrapper-sh are still present in my /usr/bin directory, but when I run "dmesg" I get no mention of the DVD writer. This seems to have happened because I removed the USB plug during relocation of the computer.
I'm pretty sure there's a simple solution to get my box to recognize the writer again, but I've had little luck with Google, or even searching through here. Please help!
