Unhappy DVD Writer on RHEL5


Hello Linux Gurus,

I have a Intel dual core on DG31PR, 2 GB, 160 GB Sata and DVD writer on my system. I have dual O/S Win Xp and RHEL5. In RHEL on the desktop I get DVDWriter icon. But on double clicking that I dont get the contents of the DCD I inserted in the DVD writer. Every time I had to mount the drive. Linux gurus, please advise a method to use as in windows.

thanks and regards

So you're saying it works fine, after you mount it? Yep..that sounds right. Windows isn't that secure, so it'll auto-mount (and auto-run), whatever you shove in there. Linux CAN auto-mount it, but it sounds like auto-mount isn't enabled for your DVD drive.

Since you have RedHat support with RHEL5, you can call them, or search their knowledgebase.

From a very brief google search

--------------------------------
Check your system-config-services
and see if autofs, haldaemon and messagebus are enabled. You can check your services in more detail by looking under:
/System
/Preferences
/Hardware
/Removable Drives and Media
--------------------------------
