Installation, cdrom not recognized...


Hey

I just wanted to install Debian Sarge and my CD-ROM is not recognized during installation (detecting hardware part).

Also have slackware and Ubuntu and both of them recognize this cd-rom without any problems, debian not...

I tried installing from cd1, no extra boot parameters...

What to do?

Have you tried the Debian netinst mini-cd?

That's really odd. What kind of CD is it? IDE/SCSI? Something exotic?
