i would like to use my dvd/rw but it isnt working.
the Graphical User Interface sais that it is in '/media' so i guess it is '/media/cdrecorder' (?). BUT, in typing 'lsmod' there appears to be no drivers loaded for this device (or for my non-existent /dev/cdrom for that matter). Also, when i tried to 'modprobe ide-cs.ko', 'FATAL: module ide-cs.ko not found' was printed onscreen. this also happened when i tried using the full path and in trying the word 'legacy' in which ide-cs.ko is placed.
ALSO(!) when i type 'modinfo ide-cs.ko' the 'description' line of this short piece of info is;
description: PCMCIA ATA/IDE card driver
mmm.either the description is wrong or i am trying to load the wrong driver, because IDE/ATA interface is not for use with cards but with cd-roms/dvd-rw/hdd etc. (is it not?)
ALSO..if this is the correct module to load i would have no idea what text to put in 'etc/X11/xorg.conf' so that the driver will be used.
if this is any use to the (extremely) helpful person who answers,
1) the '/media/cdrecorder' line of my fstab file reads;
/media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole, fscontext=sys.
the word 'fscontext' is highlighted in red.
2) ide-cs.ko is in /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667/kernel/ide/legacy
the '2,6.9-1.667' referes to your kernel version number therefore might not be the same.
am complete "newbie" (dont like this term, though it IS humbling;P) and burning a cd is the first thing iv tried to do so please explain carefully
