I can't seem to get my cd drive working in both windows and Mint Elyssa (Ubuntu Hardy). In linux it doesn't seem to appear and nor does it appear in windows. As soon as I delete my linux partition and restore Win's MBR, it works fine in Vista. I've seen a couple of threads similiar to my situation and they all link this problem to Grub.

Before you ask me why I've got Mint Elyssa installed and not the latest (helena), I've been installing different versions all day including Ubuntu 9.10 (w Grub2.0) and all fail to solve the problem.

Anybody help?


EDIT: Problem solved - I used Lilo instead and all is good.
