Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

CD/DVD integration tool question

I have SuSE 10.0, kernel 2.6.13-15.
I just looked at the CD/DVD integration tool in YaST and my DVD drive (Sony
DVD+RW DRU-120A) is listed twice. There's no link or mount point listed in
the window, just the device.

I saw the instructions:
"The list contains all detected CD/DVD drives. If
there are entries for the name of the link and the mount point displayed,
the CD-ROM is integrated into the system. Integration into the system means
that a symbolic link (e.g., /dev/cdrom, /dev/dvd, etc.) to the device name
(e.g., /dev/hdc, /dev/sr0, etc.) is present, an entry in /etc/fstab exists,
a subdirectory below /media is present, and possibly a kernel command-line
parameter is provided (for IDE devices).

Use "Add" and "Remove" to change the state of integration of an entry in
the list."
But I'm uncertain if I need to do this. The drive seems to work ok for
watching movies and listening to music as well as reading files but I can't
burn DVD's with it. The drive will only burns CD's. (see this post:

This is my fstab file:

/dev/hda2 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/hda1 swap swap defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
