2 problems, both involving drives
I'm relatively new to Linux, but I think I've got the hang of things. However, I've come across this weird problem involving both my CD/DVD drive and external floppy drive.
1 - CD drive: When I insert a CD, it reads it, and shows the CD icon on the gnome desktop, along with the title etc...in the case of an mp3 cd I inserted, I could load and play the songs in XMMS just fine. but when I tried to browse the CD through the desktop icon, it opened up the window for the CD, but there was nothing in the window (ie. nothing on the CD at all).
2 - floppy: I have a USB external LaCie floppy drive. It's worked completely fine up until now. Now, it doesn't work at all. I try to mount it, and I get an error saying something like it's not found in fstab or mtab. If I try to have it plugged in at boot so it loads at boot, doesn't work. If I try to insert is after gnome is loaded, the light turns on and reads whatever floppy is in the drive, but nothing happens after that....no desktop icon, no nothing. This is the weirdest one because it's worked fine up until now.
I hope that's enough info for someone out there to help me, if you need any of my config info, just ask.
I'm running Mandrake 10.0 official, on a Toshiba A30 laptop, and I'm using Gnome (2.4 I think...)
