CD Burner not recognized
I am having issues with my CD Burner not being recognized. I have 2 separate drives, one is a CD-ROM and one is an Acer 24X10X40 Burner which is hooked up to the Drive 1 ribbon and P3 plug on the inside of the computer (if that helps).
The CD-ROM is recognized fine, but the Burner is not. When I try to open Serpentine, i get this Error message:
'No recording drive found on your system, therefore some of Serpentine's functionalities will be disabled.'
When I just looked at my burner I noticed there are 2 LEDs on the front of it, one labeled Disc In and the other labeled Waiting. The 'Waiting' LED is on (solid red). If I hit the button to open the drive, it will not open.
Here is the output of my typing mount into the terminal:
/dev/hda1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro) proc on /proc type proc (rw) /sys on /sys type sysfs (rw) varrun on /var/run type tmpfs (rw) varlock on /var/lock type tmpfs (rw) procbususb on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw) udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw) devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620) devshm on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw) lrm on /lib/modules/2.6.15-25-386/volatile type tmpfs (rw)
This computer is a Compaq 5WV271 desktop. (fairly old)
So, How can I get my CD Burner recognized so that I will be able to burn CDs?
I probably provided too much information here, but i'm just trying to make it as easy for you guys as possible.

Can you post the output of
dmesg | grep -i cd | grep -i rom
cat /etc/fstab"To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."
