Creative DVD-ROM doesn't install


After installing slackware 9.1 my creative dvd drive doesn't show up /dev. Anyone know how to manually install or detect the drive?

Do "dmesg | grep hd" and post the output here. That should tell you where it is on the IDE bus.

Is that DVD Drive a burner also, or just DVD-ROM ? Where is it installed ? (master or slave and what IDE chain?) Any other optical drives? (type and where installed)
What does your /etc/fstab say?

Regards...

The dvd is on /dev/hdb, which is not yet included in fstab. It is not a dvd burner.
My other optical drive is a cd burner it is located on /dev/hdc.

If it is /dev/hdb, make sure it is correctly jumpered as the slave on that primary IDE chain. Then you can just go to your /etc/fstab as root and add a line for it.

Eample:

/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrecorder auto noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,user,exec 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

My /dev/cdrom is actually my DVD. Once you have it in, just do a link from your /dev/hdb to your /dev/xxx on your fstab.

HTH

Regards...
