I assumed by DVD-ROM and external drive you were using an USB optical drive of some type and would of expected a /dev/sr0 device ID. I don't so I am confused.

I still do not know what linux distribution you installed and it looks like you are running something from RAM. Granted I don't have much experience with Chromebooks.

Looks like you have mounted partition 1 of the internal drive as /mnt/dvd.

To be fair, I am also very confused.

If the device can't even be found then what am I supposed to do? I may have to see if I can find the files online instead and give up on this endeavor.

Thanks anyways guys! If you still have suggestions feel free to give them.

I'm confused too - but assuming you have maybe mounted the DVD(?)
Does entering the following command into the terminal show anything recognisable?
Code:
ls -l /mnt/dvd

loop is a mounted file

mmcblk0 is likely your internal storage, especially on a chromebook, but could also be microSD card

zram0 is a compressed file system in ram, swap in this case

vroot is likely to be your system loaded to ram, or a mounted file

So, having explained, roughly, what you are looking at, with my chromebook, external media was given the /dev/sda designation, so you may find that your DVD is mounted there.

Open a terminal, plug in your DVD, type
Code:
dmesg | tail
you should then see what your O/S thinks it is.
Use that to mount it.
If it says it is /dev/sda, then, in the terminal
Code:
mount /dev/sda /mnt
Then you should be able to see your files in the /mnt directory
Code:
ls /mnt
