Linux driver for Iomega USB CDRW
I have an external USB CDRW from Iomega and am trying to connect it to Linux laptop, with no luck! :confused:
I plugged in the USB and Linux didn't automatically detect the drive and so I went to the Iomega site to find the relevant driver, but turns out they don't have one. Any idea if this is available from a third party? Any other suggestions are welcome.
Trouble installing external USB CDRW
Thanks for your reponse geese.
You were right, I realised that my USB cable was faulty, so I can now see the device. For example when I plug in the USB CD drive with a CD in it it brings up a prompt window asking me what I want to do with the contents of the CD that is in the driver.
However, when I try to explore the contents of the CD I get the following error message:
" The path '/home/user/CDRW86522EXT3-B' does not exist. "
I tried to manually mount the device by following the link you posted, but didn't get much luck probably because I am a complete novice to Linux and don't know my way around the Shell Console much.
However, my gut feeling judging from the error message I get is that it is not a mounting issue but a case of bad referencing, which I am not sure how to fix!
Apologies if I sound ignorant, but would appreciate your help a lot.
Thanks in advance
