CD writer not working
I have a HP CD-writer. I cant get it to work, It has power to it. Whenever I place a CD in it I just hear it spinning and nothing happens. As a matter of fact I dont even know the address of the CD writer[u know like /dev/*] to check if its reading it. Plz help me to get it up and running.
you mite have to mount the drive if it isnt automaticly doing it the dev addy is /dev/cdrom i believe. so to mount it the best way is
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
most distros create a directory in the /mnt directory for your cdrom and floppy so it should already be there. give it a try and see what happens :)
