Ok this is reallysimple but I take it this the place to go once you really out of ideas.
I have mdk 10.0 CE installed. I love it , its just great, except for this little niggle, maybe its not a niggle maybe its a dumb user (me)
I have a dvd and its mounted as cdrom1(hdc) and a cdrw mouted at cdrom2(hdd).
Inserting a cd works great, it brings up the correct app and everything for the dvd drive, but for the cdrw it always says "incorrect Medium ..." and I cant access the drive. I can use it in writing a cd but not to read.
I have tried mounting it in konquoror as root but no luck, same message.
aslo, please tell me the correct way to change a cd in the dvd drive. When i eject using the button on the drive itself , linux sorta still sees the cd there, and right clicking it in konquoror to unmount afterwards doesn't help either, then i reboot and only then i can use the drive again for another cd.
another little niggle is that i inserted a flash drive and voila, it appeared as a drive on the desktop, no user intervention, but i thought maybe the same was relevant for removing it, except i shut down and when i fired it up again it still had the drive mounted there on my desktop, except this time there was no flash drive there at all.
to me it seems all the above are sorta related. seeing that i didn't first unmount before removing the media.
thanks ahead of time
really simple things but
