Lite-On DVD Drive
It is recognized as cdrom1
How can I change it to be seen as dvd. I dont know shit about hardware configuration. But I do know that i have dev/cdrom and dev/cdrom1 and cdrom1 is my dvd drive. How do I install drivers or change drivers, are they called drivers, or modules? Im so confused, Im sure its very easy, just need a little help.
I would like very much to play DVDs
Thanks a bunch.
Also, does anyone know how to make the intelli explorer mouse side buttons function as Backwards and Forwards in a web browser? THANKS!
It's already usable as a DVD drive, but if you want to rename it...
You have to login as root or su - first, before doing this (unmount any disc in there first!)...
... /dev/cdrom and /dev/cdrom1 are symbolic links to the actual devices, /dev/hdc and /dev/hdd. you can erase the symbolic links and create new ones, with the commands (replace drive names with real ones):
ln -s hdd dvd
Then, do this to replace the /mnt/cdrom1 directory with a /mnt/dvd directory:
Next, edit /etc/fstab with a text editor like pico, KWrite, or something else, so that what I think looks like this:
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
/dev/dvd /mnt/dvd iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
Then, you're done!
