It doesn't matter what type of CD it is, the O/S doesn't want to read the contents -- it's almost as if the CD hasn't been mounted, except if I try to unmount the drive I get a message telling me that only root can unmount the drive.
I've tried rebooting and I've also logged in as root, it makes no difference. When I've tried to install new software with the software manager it repeatedly asks me to insert CD1, but refuses to acknowledge that the disc has been inserted.
