Installer doesn't detected cdrom O_o


Hi there.
After boot slackware 9.1 from CD and chosing the default kernel when comes to detect the cdrom it does stop for a bit and continues. In the setup itself when comes to the part to choose from where I want to install slack I choose cdrom and he start's scaning my driver without sucess.
I don't understand is why in the boot of slack installer he detectes the name of the cdrom but he can't find it. Kinda wierd.
In my older computer he detects the same cdrom O_o


Can some one help ?

CDRom: Philips CDRW800

Tks,
pSyTrEe

try some other cd, maybe that CD rom device is having problems with that particular cd. Try copying it to some other cd and try again.
