hl-dt-st cd-rw & toshiba dvd-rw issues


i'm running redhat 9. neither of the above drives acts as if it recognizes a cd in the the particular drives. both devices are set at "noauto" on mounting. if that is all i need to change i could use the help in how to, otherwise i think it's a driver issue with both.

also of note(maybe not), the default gnome-cd player seg faults when launching the program.

thanks in advance for any suggestion/help, and if i need to include some more information will happily do!

error messages?

you haven't provided enough information. you might want to find error messages generated during your boot and post the relevant information here.

For example, open a terminal as root and type:

dmesg > boot_errors.txt

Then read the messages by typing:

vi boot_errors.txt

you should look for something like this:

hdc: CD-ROM CDU701, ATAPI CDROM drive


you also might find this thread useful.

in addition to the above

data cds mount/load just fine. looks like just a problem with audio cds in either drive, and movies on the dvd drive, in addition to the deafult gnome-cd player crashing when loading it

you don't have to mount an audio CD to read it. just insert and run a player -- have you tried another CD player app, like kscd or xmms (plugin?), or tried upgrading/reinstalling the gnome player? how are you trying to read the DVD movie - you should be able to view it using mplayer or xine, provided you have installed all the components.

i will try reinstalling the gnome cd player, although i'm not exaclty sure how to do this with redhat 9. i do have the install cds, so i'm sure i have the necesarry software. i also recently installed realplayer, but it acts as if there is no cd in the drive when i put in an audio cd.
same with a diff cd player app that was provided by redhat 9 installation, but different one from the gnome cd player that seg faults when opening...

I haven't used the gnome player, so I can't help on that - but freshmeat lists 52 projects under audio CD players, so you have some choices if you can't get it to work :
