Multiple Hardware issues (long post)
 
I have multiple problems I need help with. First and foremost, I'm having a hell of a time with my NTFS drive. I had to switch back to Windows for studying, and now that that's over with, I'm back to Linux, but I need to keep the Second drive's information intact. Mostly because there's 13Gb of mp3 files that everyone in the house uses.

Problem #1
The NTFS drive mounts as Read Only, whether this is the way it's supposed to work or not is beyond me. Though I'm of the opinion that a HD that you can only read is about useless. I remember seeing something about $LOG something on bootup, but I don't see anything about it in dmesg or /var/log/messages. (As an aside, when setting up Samba, windows can see that there is a container for the NTFS drive, but I get a network access denied message when attempting to access it.)

Problem #2
/dev/dvd
Where oh where is this mystical beast that MPlayer, Xine, et all look for? I haven't been able to wrap my head around the whole devfs idea, and I seem to be lacking something, some configuration, some piece of information, that will unlock this whole thing for me. I've done some checking, and I see that the Lite-On drives I have are reported to be just the most compatible drives ever, yet I'm having so much trouble with them.

First of all, the system (to my knowledge) doesn't see the 2nd DVD drive. Well, I take that back, it sees it when booting up, but it doesn't get mounted, though mount /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom will mount it correctly. I'm being forced to go through and pick .vob files when trying to watch a movie. The output of dmesg makes me think there are serious issues with /dec/hdc.

I have the nForce drivers from nVidia installed... for what their worth. (Nothing IMO, they only provide enahnced support for the onboard Ethernet cables, and the drivers for the onboard sound, which I don't use anyway)

Problem #3
I'm a :newbie: all over again and I hate it.

Anyway, thanks goes out to anyone who reads this entire thing. More thanks to anyone that has a suggestion or 5 for me. I've been trying to get Samba and DVD authoring going to no avail, and my wall has a definite head-print going on.

Well, I can answer your first point at least. At present, NTFS write support in Linux is considered unreliable, and attempts by a Linux system to write to an NTFS partition will often end in large amounts of data loss. I'm told that there is a system called "captive NTFS" which can write safely, but I don't really know much about it. A quick search through the forums should tell you more.

Unfortunately, I can't really help with your other problem. Hopefully this information's of some use though.

How did you get on?
It's been a while, but I've stumbled here on another errand ... just in case someone else does, I'll try and make it worth their while even if you are through with the whole thing.

P1: Like the guy says - ntfs is ro by default. Captive is now pretty good at writing to it. However, you shouldn't need rw access to play mp3 files. Your best bet is to copy the mp3's over and convert to ogg/vorbis (the Q loss is undetectable in double-blind trials). Then play under linux.

If you don't like that, then the trick most people use is as follows: create a small vfat/fat32 partition. Get windows to see it (usually as drive D:) and mount it as something like /mnt/wind under linux. This will allow you to share files between windows and linux without worrying about ntfs compatability. (Remember, the partition needs to be below 32Gb so windows will access it properly.)

P2: assuming the dvd drives are /dev/hdc and /dev/hdd... you will find that things get handled by symlinks. So /mnt/cdrom is the mountpoint for /dev/cdrom, but /dev/cdrom is a link to /dev/hdc (go look and see). To get the second dvd drive to mount, you need to (a) create a mountpoint for it, say, /mnt/dvd (b) create a link called /dev/dvd to /dev/hdd, (c) edit fstab to add a line just like the cdrom line, only with the above "dvd" bits instead of the "cdrom" bits.

The nvidia drivers have got better since your post. Even so - it is very tricky to get decent 3D accel under linux. Go complain to the video card companies. (More recent SiS cards and intel-chipsets seem to have open-source drivers though.)

P3: You'll get over it ;)

For the future - it is probably best to avoid mobos with a large proprietary component (like nvidia based jobs). It is unlikely to support linux very well.

Sorry to Necro this thread but...
 
Ok, I'm a Newbie in every sense of the word, so please please please if I sound dumb... I am. But be nice anyway ;)

The situation...

Just finished building a new System, with specs...

AMD Athlon 64 dualcore, Asus A8N-E mobo and 1 LG DVDRW.

I'm installing Kubuntu, everything boots fine, the install menu loads but when it gets to the point of mounting the drive in order to install I receive the following error...

BUFFER I/O error on Device hdc, logical block.

There are some number references too, but I have no idea what they mean, or even if they're useful. This error keeps reoccuring (so far it's up to logical block 6)

Any ideas welcomed.

Your CD is bad. Replace with another one.

Ubuntu Live CD booting issue
 
When booting the Ubuntu 6.06 Live CD, I can get to the initial menu, and then tell it to run the Desktop (so that I may install it to the harddrive), and when it gets to the Mounting filesystem, I will see the following error message...

17179704.704000 Buffer I/O Error on device hdc, logical block 0..
and it will repeat with logical blocks changing numbers 0 - 7.
The first set of numbers will advance by 6 (next set from the above example would be 17179710.824000)

I've tried 3 separate burnings of the CD, one at "optimal" speed. one at "32x" speed, and one all the way down to "4x" speed. Same problem.

I'm thinking hardware issue with the CD-ROM, but I wanted a second opinion.

I'd appreciate any help.

Actually, I swapped CD-ROM's and it's working correctly as far as I can tell. I'll post this in case someone else comes along with the same issue.

You mean you swapped CD-ROM Drives?
