A bit new to Linux - wrestled with a few things, video related and fixed. But upon trying to burn a new distro ISO file to disk, I noticed that Linux Mint 7 is not seeing the DVD/RW drive at all.
It is slave to a CD drive. The Linux Mint 8 Helena disc can't see this drive either. A Bart-PE disc can see the drive, and it was working under XP. The Bios sees the drive also.
What does one do in such a case?
