Problem with apt-cdrom on a Presario F700 (756NR)


I posted a similar question last week and got one midly sarcastic reply. So let's try again.

Hardware: Presario f700 laptop

Software: Debian 4.3 AMD64 Etch 3-dvd set

What I've done so far: After installing, wanted to install gcc and other stuff. Tried apt-get update. That failed.

Then I tried apt-cdrom all. It unmounted the DVD but would not mound the DVD back on. It seems to know the name of the DVD but that's all.

I've reinstalled Debian 5 times. Get the same result each time.

sources.list appears normal. fstab appears normal.

Please, any thoughts?

Jack

'apt-get update' is for updating your repo.
'apt-get install <package>' will install a package .deb
If you have an error with 'apt-get update', show the error text, please.
No command 'apt-cdrom all' ==> it's 'apt-cdrom add'
All commands shown works with root# ('su')
Else not.
