    CD Drive, halfway working


    I've just installed Mandrake 10 and I am having a hard time making the cd drive work correctly. It does not recognize CDs. The drive makes sounds like it is working but it never is able to read the CDs. I have a NEC ND-5100A and am trying to find a driver specific for it. Does anybody know where to find this driver, or have any other troubleshooting hints?

    Much thanks in advance

    what are you trying to read from the cd?
    is it a music cd or some sort of data cd or maybe an install cd?

    have you tried manually mounting it?
    type this from a command line.

    Code:
    mount /mnt/cdrom
    (/mnt/cdrom might be different, but that is the default if you have 1 cdrom drive in mandrake 10)
