Debian 5.0.4 DVD (AMD64) does not recognize Toshiba L500D-ST2532 DVD Drive
I am new to Linux. I am trying to install the subject Debian on the subject Toshiba. Both recent purchases. Debian boots on the DVD but during the install routine it says that it can not find/recognize my CD-DRIVE. I have tried every install option and rebooted several times without success. The bios were changed to boot from the DVD.
I have accessed the Help on the Debian DVD #1 disk and reviewed the relevant sections but I can not determine what to do next?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
