How to know if my drives are working after recieving new hard drive.
My hard drive died in my new comps so I got a new one. I've installed Ubuntu and now it seems both of my CD/DVD drives aren't working. I don't think one of them has ever worked. Have I missed something I need to install? I've gone through all the updates etc but the one that was working before doesn't read my audio CD and I can hear a quiet clicking noise. The other is worse that before, when I open it, automatically it closes itself the second it opens.
My warranty on this computer is going to run out soon so I need to know how I can double check that the drives need to be replaced. I have a Dell comp so there is no retail store that I can have it checked in.
