Problems with CD-DVD Drive
Hi everybody, I am a Linux user from 2 months, but I am really really desperate!
In fact I have a problem with my cd-dvd drive. The problem is that if I write a cd iso with the drive, I am not able to use that cd with Linux! I tried to burn it with Windows and Nero, and then with Linux, but both the cds I got don't work with Linux and are perfect with Windows!
I discovered this while I first tried to install RedHat Linux with the cdroms I created with the images downloaded from RedHat Network. Even during the installation only the first cd didn't give me problems, but everytime I needed to change it in order to go on with installation, the cdreader did always the same: while it tries to read the cd I hear sounds like "woooooom", as it reads the cd at the maximum speed, and then I hear a big "toc", as it stops reading, and then a message "no media in the drive" appears I had the same problem while I tried to install the Mandriva LE distro with the 3 cds I burned in Windows.
But the strange thing is that all the cds are perfectly readable with Windows XP! So I cannot think that the drive is damaged, but there must be something to configure in Linux, even during the installation.
But what is it?! I tried to disable DMA but nothing changes.... so now I really do not know what to do.
I have to say that I can use anyother cd/dvd, that I haven't burnt by myself, with Linux.
My PC is a Dell laptop Inspiron 8600c, with a NEC Cd, DVD+RW.
I really hope that somebody can finally help me.
Thank You All very much!
PS:I'm sure that I burnt the cds perfectly with Nero Image Writer, so I have not copied the iso file on cd, but correctly used it.
