I installed mythbuntu 11.10, but it doesn't recognize my DVD and CD drives on DELL desktop 8400. How do I make it to recognize them? Thanks,
You need the Medibuntu repository Ubuntu 11.10. Medibuntu (Multimedia, Entertainment & Distractions In Ubuntu) is a repository of packages that cannot be included into the Ubuntu distribution for legal reasons, copyright, license and patents (e.g. advanced DVD playback support, multimedia codecs etc.)
To add Medibuntu repository, run the full command below at once:
You can also run an additional command to add support for viewing Medibuntu packages in Ubuntu Software Center and bug reporting for crashes, if any.
