Question cd burner detection problems


After so much help, my slackware 11 seems to be going ok. I have a dvd drive and a dvd burner. The dvd drive is working, but the computer doesn't seem to want to find the dvd burner. The model of burner is Nec nd2500 dvd-r/+r. Did a search of there website and they don't have any drivers to help me. There answer is always - well, the operative system (windows) will find it. As you guessed, we are not using windows. Is there anyone with any suggestions, please.

What do you mean computer doesn't seem to find the burner ? You tried it with k3b ?
You can try with cdrecord to force using that device.

update on cd burner

Thanks for your comments on k3b. I have downloaded the files but am unsure of the next step. Don't forget I am a newbie to linux. Regarding your comment on the computer not finding the burner - I meant that the device isn't listed in the system folder and I don't really know the commands to find unlisted devices. If you are up on the command structure, then I would appreciate any help you can give. Not a problem with your English.

updating firmware

I have been checking around a bit and a lot of people say that I updating the firmware could be the solution? I don't want to risk destroying my burner if that route is a bit risky. Any thoughts.

No don't update the firmware especially if you are newbie. Try to install and run k3b it is really easy to use cd burning program and it should detect your drive... If you are using gnome you can try graveman

What kernel are you running?
Look at the output of the command dmesg. This will show if the drive is being recognized by the OS and its device ID.

Getting this error code when I try to run k3b K package does not find any problems with the files, so I don't know what to do about that.


k3b: error while loading shared libraries: libsamplerated object file: No such file or directory
