My cdrom drive was working until yesterday it didn't mount at all. It said 'special device /dev/scd0 does not exist'. I went and checked in BIOS and the CD rom was not identified there as well I would like to know if there is a workaround for this problem. I am using an ACER aspire 4520 laptop with only ubuntu 9.10 on i
I'm trying to install Lucid on a computer with windows already present. When I ran trough the install procedure no drives show up at the partitioning stage. So I check some things out and it turns out that /dev/sda1 is mounted to /cdrom and I can't umount it because it says the disk is in use. I'm booting with the live-cd downloaded from ubuntu. Why is this happening? Previously with older live-cd's I always have to mount the HD manually if I wanted to access it for any reason?
I have installed Ubuntu server 10.10 today and I am trying to mount the scsi cdrom drive in a Dell Poweredge 2850. I can see the device in dev listed as scd0, but when i try to mount it to /media/cdrom or /mnt/cdrom I get a long list of I/O errors: Buffer I/O error on device sr0.
I exchanged my CDROM drive for DVD drive. The DVD is recognized in the BIOS (will boot to DVD install disc) and in CentOS 5.2 (when I list the hardware), but CentOS must still think it's a CDROM drive. When I run VLC in a terminal it kicks back these errors code...
I think this means that "hdc" is linked to a CDROM configuration somewhere, but I don't know where to find it to change it (or out it). It also appears thee is no DVD module loading. (Of course, I could be making poor guesses.)
I thought there might be something in the fstab, but it doesn't appear there is anything there (for the CDROM or DVD drive)?
Is there somewhere else I should be looking? /dev/*** ?
I have just installed Xubuntu and suprisingly it did not ask me to create a partition within its installer like Ubuntu does. So now, I am left with 150mb of free space. I want to expand that amount. The problem is, I do not know where it has been installed on. I have a C and an E drive. Currently, the C drive is mounted and the E drive will not mount even if i press the mount button. Does anyone have a solution?
My cdrom was sort of working, but the tray was physically damaged. The usb was working without a problem.
After replacing the the cdrom drive with a similar model known to work well I could not get it to mount. I then tried to move important files to usb to try a fresh install. The usb stick flickered when I put it in, but it didn't mount. Same behaviour as the cdrom, the light goes on when I turn on the computer, but once I'm logged in I can't access the cdrom.
I have tried multiple variations of playing with fstab and trying to mount things in terminal to no avail. I just can't get Ubuntu to recognize the usb or cdrom even though their lights go on when I first try to use them.
I've just installed Ubuntu desktop 10.10 (32 bit). No matter what programs I run, the CD-ROM (DVD-ROM) drive is checking for a new CD/DVD every 5 seconds or so (even if no applications are running). It is quite annoying because of its robotic noise. The drive is empty. How could this be turned off? Is the media manager misconfigured by default?
I browsed through the forums last night for several hours looking for a solution to this and nothing specific to 10.10 came up but i tried several of the methods suggested for previous versions yet none of them seemed to help. the disk spins up when inserted but ubuntu doesn't even show that the drive exist .
I'm trying to create a new VM with Debian 7.6. I downloaded the 3 install iso discs and tried to install. When I begin the installation it seems to take control of the CDROM and I am no longer able to eject it by either pressing the eject button or trying to eject through Windows. The installation goes fine until it asks if I have any other discs to install (which I do ... I have 2 more). At this point I say "Yes" but I cannot get the CDROM to open up at all since it doesn't automatically eject for another disc and as I mentioned before ... I can't do it manually or in Windows.
- I cannot do an installation over the internet because this is a government computer which is requires to be hooked to a government network. There are certain certificates required to access the network which are not available to my newly made (or in the process of making) Linux system but rather only to my host Windows system. - I cannot use a newer version of VirtualBox because that opens up a whole new set of issues dealing with WinVerifyTrust getting CERT_E_REVOCATION_FAILURE most likely due to our symantec security software.
So my Storage Settings in VirtualBox are as follows for my CDROM drive: - Controller: IDE Controller - Type: PIIX4 - "Use Host I/O Cache" is checked - Host Drive D: - CD/DVD Drive: IDE Secondary Master - "Passthrough" is checked
I cannot install the Debian 7.6 OS because I cannot eject each disc and put in the next disc. The only way I can eject the disc is if I reboot my entire system (host windows system) which obviously leaves me at an unfinished point in my install and therefore I have to restart the install and end up right where I was 30 minutes earlier.
The CDROM/DVD drive in the new computer was defective. Everything is working now.
My ancient Dell desktop finally kicked the bucket but the hard drive was relatively new (less than a year old).So I replaced that old desktop with a new desktop (not Dell this time) and decided to just plug in the old hard drive - to see what happens.Well, I was pleasantly surprised when Debian booted up and executed as normal (ok then, ALMOST normal)!
The problem is that the CDROM/DVD-RW is not recognized.For example, I have an audio CD in it, but neither file managers or multimedia players can see it (where 'it' is either the CD itself or the CDROM device).
I've tried GUI applications like mplayer, kplayer, Vlc, dolphin, pcmanfm; and I've tried the command line as well (bash).Short of doing a complete reinstall of Debian, is there a way to get it to recognize this 'new' hardware?
just installed squeeze today, all went well but when I put a cdrom or dvd disc in it will not auto mount.. have to manually mount them from terminal. I've looked a /ect/fstab and do not see any problems there. Anyone else run into this problem on a squeeze install and fixed it?
I downloaded and burned the Fedora-13-x86_64-dvd iso to install on my shiny new box (MSI NF980-G65 MB, AMD Phenom II x4 945 CPU, 8GB Corsair DDR3 memory, generic ATAPI DVD drive, 2 500GB SATA drives, 2 1.5TB SATA drives). I boot from the DVD and and take the default install/upgrade option on the menu. I've tried with the default boot options and with about a dozen different options, all give the the same thing.
Looking console 3, shows the following:
ERROR loader: removing ddmode.conf failed ERROR loader: got to setupCdrom without a CD device
It can't find the CD/DVD drive that it booted from. The install on console 1 is prompting for a driver to load. Do I need to download a driver for a generic ATAPI/IDE CD/DVD drive?
I inserted a disc and tried to access it through Dolphin. It shows up in the directory explorer thing as a disc and with the disc name, but it has a little / thing in the bottom corner of the icon, and when I try to access it, it gives me this long error on the bottom of the file area (can't remember what all it said, something about 'harvey' and being unable to find the directory in /etc/fstab). The same thing happened with an external drive, which seemed to work fine before but now has the same problem.
I bought a new CDROM drive, as recommended by HP. It still doesn't work. I can open and close it now; so that's changed. But it still doesn't appear as a drive, and I can't use it.
Here's as best as I can describe it:
When starting up, the boot order doesn't recognize the cdrom drive, but I can open and close the drive during this time.
In Windows 7, I can't open the cdrom drive, and it doesn't recognize it in device manager, disk management, or my computer.
In Ubuntu Linux, I can open the cdrom drive, but it still doesn't recognize the cds, and it won't mount.
If I reformat everything, would my cdrom drive work again? Can I reinstall Windows without a cdrom drive? I've deleted the upper and lower filters as was suggested in Google searches. Took the disk drive out and checked that it was installed correctly (no reason it shouldn't have been). Still: nothing works.
I have successfully setup a FOG server to image my Windows clients, so I have tftp, pxe and anything else related to booting to a pxe server setup and rocking. What I'm trying to do now, is use the CentOS net install files to setup CentOS on an old server with no USB boot option, and a broken scsi cdrom drive (it's a Dell PowerEdge 2400, with a single PIII 733 and 1.25GB ram).
Using the FOG Projects gparted wiki entry (adding gparted to the pxe boot menu) I was actually successfully able to pull the net install files over to the PE, and install CentOS 5.5 via local ftp server. At first it kept erroring out (I kept picking and choosing individual packages from the package groups), so I thought it may be an issue with the GUI install (the python script kept spitting back errors forcing a reboot). In any case, I finally got through the GUI install, but now I need / want to know how to force a text mode install.
the bolded "append" line is where I thought I could force the text mode install script, but that didn't work. The vmlinuz and initrd.img files were both pulled form the net install iso, NOT the livecd. Would that have made a difference? If not, what / where / how should I force the text mode install script?
Whenever I right-click on a mounted usb drive, I have the option to "safely remove" it. However, it I choose this option, I inevitably get the following error message:
Unable to stop drive Error detaching: helper exited with exit code 1: Detaching device /dev/sdb USB device: /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.6) SYNCHRONIZE CACHE: synchronize cache(10): Fixed format, current; Sense key: Key=9 Additional sense: Logical unit not ready, cause not reportable Info fld=0x0  FAILED: No such file or directory (Continuing despite SYNCHRONIZE CACHE failure.) STOP UNIT: start stop unit: transport: Host_status=0x07 [DID_ERROR] Driver_status=0x00 [DRIVER_OK, SUGGEST_OK] FAILED: No such file or directory
I'm currently using Lucid, but this happened on Karmic as well. The way I see it, the result I would like would be either: 1. The "safely remove drive" command just unmounts the drive (I can't imagine what else it does anyways, besides give me this stupid error) 2. There is no "safely remove drive" option.
I have been having the hardest time with this. I am trying to mount a share on a Ubuntu 10.04 system from another Ubuntu 10.04 system.
The system with the share has the OS on one drive and then data on a second internal sata drive that is mounted. The share is on this second drive.
I can see it when I browse networking from the other system but it won't mount. I get a message saying that the folder contents can't be displayed. I do not have permissions necessary to view the contents...
I have tried setting the share folder permissions as permissive as possible but can't get passed it.
I use davfs2 to mount a Webdav drive at startup. It mounts correctly and I have read access to all files my account gives me access to. One big problem though: I can't create of modify any file. I know it is not a user account problem because everything works well when I mount the drive in Windows 7 using WebDrive.
Here's the entry in /etc/fstab to automatically mount the drive:
I am trying to access a mounted secondary drive through FTP, and when I try to connect to it I am not able to see any of its contents. Any suggestions? I am using Gadmin-proftp to configure. I can point it to any other folder on the main drive and see it perfectly.
I have two machines. Desktop and X61s. I have a drive on Desktop called Ianthe. This is in /media. This is remotely mounted on my X61s machine (a laptop), as /media/Ianthe. It automounts when I boot it up. BUT, the same drive looks different when viewed on the remote machine. An example is a certain directory, which when viewed on Desktop has 21 files in it, but when viewed on X61s has on 7 files in it.
If, on the X61s machine, I go to Network > Windows Network > LBBARNET > DESKTOP > Ianthe and navigate to the relevant folder, I can see all 21 items. But if I mount it, I can only see the 7. I have tried rebooting X61s, but it remains the same. The permissions on all the files in the folder on Desktop are identical, so I can't see any permission reason why this should happen. And, if I copy one of the files on the Desktop which doesn't appear on mounted view on X61s then the copied version appears immediately on both views.
I observed a problem with the Yahoo Mail Attachments.If I want to attach a file from a drive that's mounted (one of my windows partitions), the file who I attach to mail seems attached but after I send the mail the recipients do not receive my file. First I thought it was a mistake, but then it happened several times. Does anyone know any workarounds except copying the files who you want to send to an Linux drive and then sending it from that location?
How do you find the device (e.g. /dev/*) for a mounted USB drive in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)? I'm trying to format a Cruzer USB flash drive, and when I plug it in, the icon for the mounted filesystem appears on my desktop. However, when I open GParted, it doesn't list the filesystem as an option to partition.
The recommendations I've found through Google include monitoring tail -f /var/log/messages, which they claim should list the device name when the drive is mounted, but this never happens for me. I've also read that the USB drive would usually be linked to /dev/sdb, but this appears as a broken link on my filesystem. How else would I find the device?
About every couple of days, my linuxfiles mount will disconnect. I notice this because I have created a symbolic link from my user's home folder to this drive. So when I log in, if the drive isn't mounted I get the following errors:
Quote: Could not update ICEauthority file /home/johnathan/.ICEauthority Quote:There is a problem with the configuration server. (usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)
I keep having to remove the mount folder and then readd it. Then I have to reapply the permissions for it to connect back to those files. How can I correct this? This only happens to this mount, the others stay connected with no issue. Also, when I log in and I have this issue... I cannot get out of this or log off unless I shutdown my laptop... is there another way? I guess I could do an init 3 from the CL.
I just got ubuntu installed for the first time, I tried mounting my hard drive to my desktop so i can have easy access to it, but when i restart ubuntu it always dissapears and i have to go to places then click on the hard drive again to mount it to my desktop.
Is there a way of keeping this on the desktop without having to do this all the time? I have the latest ubuntu version.
