DVD drive only recognized as CDROM


I have a toshiba DVD burner that is only being recognized as a CDROM drive. If I put a cdrom in it mounts automatically. But when I place a DVD in and try to mount it, it just says it is an unrecognized format.

Any Takers,,

Thanks John

You can't mount DVD's, you have to use a program like mplayer or xine to play it.

I have tried to use mplayer to mount the data DVD and video DVD but I can't get it to recognize that there is even a DVD drive instead of just a cdrom there

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

sorry, I posted it in here before I realized that I should have put it in hardware. I will be more careful about it next time
