Talking FC3 Setting up Sony DVD burner DRU-710A


I have this dvd burner, it recognizes it but nothing else. I can not get the dvd to open at all. I have a creative cdrw which works fine, but how would I go about setting up this Sony burner?

You couldn't be any more LESS spesific

What type is it, and what is the problem with it?
k3b is really worth checking out

Good luck

Sorry, i didn't see it.

Have you tried k3b?
What do you mean with "I can not get the dvd to open at all."

HELP!!!!!!

Sorry if it came off bad I typed after my Jets blew the game today Anyway

When i press the button for the dvd tray to pop open so i can put a dvd in it won't open. Also now that you said install k3b i had my butt handed to me. I had gotten all the way up too, make. The next step was to, su -c "make install", which i typed I then received this message

shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
make: getcwd: : No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.

It then laughed at me.
Thank you for your replies!!!!
