Grip Fails to Find CD Drive in Ubuntu 12.04


grip fails to find the CD drive regardless of what /dev name I use, such as /dev/cdrom1 or /dev/sr1 via the Config tab. My Ubuntu 12.04 computer has a CD drive and a DVD drive.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Code:
$ dmesg | grep "sr0"
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/24x cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
Note: your drive might be called sr1 or sr2 if you have several; in that case replace sr0 with sr1 in that case (or simply sr to catch them all).

Code:
$ dmesg | grep "sr" 
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/24x cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 5
and since Mint is based on Ubuntu. A rant of sorts

Hi, Everyone,

Thanks very much for your help. lshw confirms that my CD drive's logical names are /dev/cdrom1 and /dev/sr1. Tonight grip suddenly worked for me whether I chose /dev/cdrom1 or /dev/sr1 in the Config tab. Each time after I selected the tracks and clicked Rip Only, grip ripped several song CDs rather fast. But once in a while the old problem of it failing to detect an inserted CD popped up again. I suspect that this might be a system problem.

At least I now know grip works and that's good enough for me.
