EEE PC External DVD drive not working


Hi guys,

I am running an Asus Eee PC 4G laptop, with the default Xandros as my OS. I bought an External DVD drive so I can watch DVDs on this PC while traveling. I plugged it in and I can hear it load but then it stops. I wait and wait and wait. So, I went to where it's mounted (/home/user/) and only there is a picture with a broken link and below it it says Storage Media. So I click on that and it Says: 'You do not have permission to run Storage Media'. So now I run file manager as super user and it says the same thing! I have installed libdvdcss and libdvdcss2. What could be wrong?

Thanks!

Hi,

Simple question? Did you reboot with the external drive connected?

Yup. Rebooting does the same thing.
