DVD Rom drive is not seen


Hello all. I just installed Slack on my computer and my DVD ROM drive is not noticed.
I have a CD Burner and that is seen just fine.

here is some info.

jeem@faststar:~$ ll /dev/dvd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 2004-08-12 18:15 /dev/dvd -> /dev/hdc

jeem@faststar:~$ ll /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 2004-08-12 18:15 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdc

They both point to the same place

mount
/dev/hda4 on / type reiserfs (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)

cat /etc/fstab
/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda4 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0


What do I need to do?
Jeem

Perhaps you can start by telling us where the DVD Rom is connected? I see the CD-Burner is hdc but what is the DVD?

rm /dev/dvd

ln -s /dev/hdd /dev/dvd

That's all it took.

Mplayer is getting an error though: Couldn't open DVD device /dev/dvd

I can mount it and list the files but that is all.
