Can't see dvd or cd files on Laptop dv2000 with fedora core 9


Hi, 3 weeks ago I installed fedora, and I was able to install everythin with yum, rpm files or tar files by myself, but until now I did not check if my dvd-cd drive burner is working, actually it doesn't, I see on my computer "CD-ROM DRIVE" next to my filesystem HD, but it does not work, I don't now why.

I don't know if the following command mess up my DVD drive (I use this command to install matlab).

as a root I run

# mount -o loop file_name /Iso
where Iso is the folder I use to mount the image.

Please help.

Sergio

Hi again, I just found that K3b found this problem

No CD/DVD writer found.
K3b did not find an optical writing device in your system. Thus, you will not be able to burn CDs or DVDs. However, you can still use other K3b features like audio track extraction or audio transcoding or ISO9660 image creation.


hope this can help you help me.

Sergio

Most of the programs will search your cd/dvd's by a standard names /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd by default. They must be a soft links pointing to your actual cd/dvd-device. Or you should simply tell to a needed program what device it should use.

thanks for your answer, but actually right now I can't see anything in my pc but the filesystem icon so, when I try to go to /dev/dvd or dev/cd the terminal says 'no such file or directory' so I assume is like a driver problem like inwindows, if u can help me with this I will be very grateful. Thanks.
