Debian :: Optical Drives Don't Show Up Unless Boot With Media - Then They Disappear

Aug 8, 2010

I have two optical drives (not SATA) that previously showed up as /dev/hda and /dev/hdb. No longer. I see no mention of them in fstab and catting all the /dev/dvd /dev/cd... /dev/sr.. turns up nothing. If I place a disk with info in the drive nothing appears anywhere I can see (not in dmesg).

K3b tells me no devices found. wodim tells me Detected CD-R drive: /dev/sr1 wodim: Cannot do inquiry for CD/DVD-Recorder. Errno: 5 (Input/output error), test unit ready scsi sendcmd: fatal error CDB: 00 00 00 00 00 00 cmd finished after 0.000s timeout 40s (These are not SATA drives.) I noticed rebooting will show drives if there is media in there. However, that disappears after a while as well. Then inserting and reinserting cdroms gives no messages in dmesg.

Ubuntu :: Get Extra Media Drives To Auto Mount At Boot?

Apr 10, 2011

Im trying to get my extra media drives to auto mount at boot, having problems with it. Does this line look right?

/dev/sdb /media auto auto,user,noexec,rw,sync 0 2

The one thing I'm not sure about is the mount point, am I just putting '/media' or am I putting '/media/MKV' or whatever the name of the drive may be?

Hardware :: Life Span Of An Optical Media

Aug 27, 2010

I recently read about recommendations for increasing the life span of optical media as follows:-

1) storage at constant temperature in the range 41F-68F with relative humidity 30%-50%
2) no exposure to direct sunlight
3) marking only with water soluble markers

How water soluble marker becomes a factor in the life span of an optical media ?

CentOS 5 :: Install Using An USB Key Than Optical Media Drive?

Aug 1, 2010

1- If I have a motherboard that supports USB boot (a Supermicro one), how can I put the CentOS DVD .iso that I just downloaded onto the stick to have the computer boot from it?

2- Certain Supermicro boards support IPMI (Kvm over LAN) and Serial over LAN and most notably Virtual Media Over Lan. I am wondering if there would be any problem installing CentOS using the Virtual Media over Lan.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot Screen Doesn't Show And Installation Media Won't Load

Jun 7, 2010

I've got a dual-booting system with Windows 7 and Opensuse 11.2. I had a few other random kernels so I edited /boot/grub/menu.lst to remove them. This was fine after a reboot, then I went to YaST and changed the default boot partition to Windows, because I had edited the MBR and put Windows above the other boot partitions, YaST changed "default" to 0.

Now after a restart the Boot Loader doesn't appear, I just have a flashing cursor. When I try to boot from an OpenSuse installation disc and try repair the Repair Kernel loads but freezes on the OpenSuse splash screen. I've heard this is due to the fact I have an ATI Radeon card, if I hold shift during the CD load to prevent the graphical interface of the CD loading. I can type to boot "rescue" but it freezes on "starting udev...". Essentially I just need to be able to edit menu.lst back to the backup I made or change the "default" value back to 1.

General :: Disappear Desktop Icon For Removable Media?

Mar 16, 2010

Ubuntu 9.04 Gnome Desktop (although I have seen the same situation in other versions).When I have a removable media device installed such as a USB flash drive, a CD/DVD or an SD card in the built in reader I have a corresponding icon on the desktop. So here is my situation...I have a 16 GB SDHC card installed in the reader in my netbook as additional storage. As the main solid state "hard drive" itself is only 16 GB I leave the card in at all times. I would like to do away with the desktop icon as I never use it to access the SD card. Any way to do this? I believe it appear as part of the HAL process so perhaps it will go away with 10.04.

Slackware :: No Optical Drive Found - K3b Did Not Find Any Optical Device In Your System

May 22, 2010

I dont know when k3b stopped working but have just gone to burn a disk and when opening it tells me

Quote: No optical drive found. K3b did not find any optical device in your system. Solution: Make sure HAL daemon is running, it is used by K3b for finding devices.

I can boot from cd and can mount cds from within Slackware but for some reason k3b insists that i don't have a drive.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Optical Out From TV Into The SPDIF / Optical In On PC

Jul 5, 2010

I currently have the following:-

Optical Out from my TV into the SPDIF / Optical In on my PC
Optical Out from my PC into my Sony 5.1 Theatre Kit

The audio from the PC comes through ok when listening to music and movies. But unfortunately I can figure out how to enable the audio passthrough from my Tv so that the audio comes out of my theatre kit. In Sound Preferences, the hardware is set to 1 Output / 1 Input [Digital Stereo (IEC95 Output + Digital Stereo (IEC95 Input]. When I click on the audio tab, the Input Volume is at 100% and the Input Level is moving in conjunction with the audio coming from the Tv.

I saw it mentioned in another thread to install Gnome Alsa Mixer which I've done, it seeems to identify the audio chipset as Realtek ALC882, the motherboard is an Abit AB9 Pro. Hopefully I'm missing some config somewhere or there a box I should be ticking but I just can't find it.

Hardware :: Can't Get Pc To Boot From Optical Drive

Mar 9, 2010

I have a pc with linux mint installed, and wanted to try edubuntu with my kids. The first time we tried, it booted just fine from the dvd, as the bios is already set to boot from dvd as priority. So it ran off of RAM.

Subsequent tries however, result in the pc booting mint from the hdd, and no sign of edubuntu at all. I have tried different distros/isos, but to no avail. I have also opened the box to see if the dvd drive had somehow come unplugged.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing With No Optical - USB Boot Or FDD

Jan 18, 2010

I have a Dell Lattitude LS. It gets used for very light web browsing, RDP into my main PC and also to access Megasquirt in my car. It had until recently a stripped out XP install there that ran ok despite the laptop being a P3 500, 256mb RAM. That install is now damaged, it gets as far as the login screen and then hangs. Instead of repairing it, I want to put ubuntu on there as i think it'll manage the (lack of) resources better. However, the laptop has no optical drive, cannot boot from USB and I'm not sure if the external FDD. I have for it works either (it's a bit crusty).

I do have a pata > usb convertor to access the drive via my main PC though. Am just not sure what I can put on there to let me boot and then install. Is it plausible to make the HDD act like a LiveCD? Should I partition it, and copy the install ISO contents into one of the partitions, and go from there - but how do I make that bootable? I do have another laptop with a PATA HDD that does have a working optical drive. Could I begin the install on that, then pull the drive and swap it over at some point during the install - or is that a no go?

Ubuntu :: Optical Drive Not Mounting After Boot

Jun 8, 2010

So if I boot without a DVD or CD in my optical drive, then I attempt to put one it, it doesn't mount. I try mounting with the terminal and that fails as well. If I boot with the media in the optical drive, it works fine. (this problem occurs both on my desktop and laptop and I know the DVD and CD's work in both 9.10 and in windows, This error also occurs with Linux Mint and Sabayon leading me to believe this is a kernel issue).

[Code]...

What do I need to do to get this to work like it should? I have been asking about this since the beta of 10.04

Ubuntu :: Duplicate Drives In Media Folder?

Sep 6, 2010

Ive been noticing lately that in my media folder, where I am able to see all the drives I have connected, it seems that each one is duplicated. For example, if I have a drive called "WD" theres another called "WD_", or "Lacie" and "Lacie_". And when I click on the ones with the "_", it says I don't not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of 'lacie'. But when I click the ones without the underscore, I get in. But heres the funny part, when using jdownloader, and i choose the folder where to save the files, I have to select the drive that has the underscore in it. Heres some pics and if you look at my info screenlet to the left, you will see that it shows the drives with the undercore.

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows Dual Boot - One HD No Optical?

Dec 15, 2010

I am pretty new to ubuntu, I have a machine without an optical drive booting meerkat from the only partition on the only disk. I would like to move from this situation to duel booting with windows 7. Can anyone advise on general strategy/path for achieving this? In particular addressing the following:

1) Can I unmount the partition that ubuntu is running off in order to repartition the disk? If not (how) can I partition my OS boot disk?
2) Is there any way to install windows onto a clean partition using the windows disk ISO from within ubuntu? Could I perhaps somehow mount the ISO as a drive then use Wine to run the windows installer? Would this approach break down when the windows installer restarts the machine to continue installation? I assume its impossible to boot off the ISO?

FYI I'm absolutely loving ubuntu - the only reason I want windows too is so I can play some windows games without an emulation layer.

Fedora Installation :: 4 & 6GB Drives Show As 3.9 And 5.9GB?

Sep 16, 2009

OK, I obviously did something wrong, but I dont think I did because i checked my kickstart file after installing.

When i do a df -h it shows that drives i set to 4096MB and 6144MB when I just installed the server, are showing as 3.9GB and 5.9GB respectively.

This is my first Linux install, does it not do the # x 1024 for partition sizes?

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot 2 *seperate* Drives \ Several 1.5TB+ Drives, And One Of Them Is Not Being Used?

May 1, 2011

I've used it once before but got fed up with the boot asking me everytime I turned my laptop on because I wasn't using it enough. I have Windows 7 on drive C . I want to keep it on drive C. I have several 1.5TB+ drives, and one of them is not being used. I want to dedicate it to Ubuntu, and be able to do a dual boot with my Windows 7 install. Is this possible? If it is, what about when this drive is not connected to my laptop? Will that mess up the boot process?
