Relatively new to the Xubuntu game (was recently gifted an archaic dual-core desktop that I'm trying to make my Plex server). I have tried finding the DVD drive on the directory and only found CDROM, which, following the commands, is still not showing up alongside the floppy disk drive on my desktop.
So unfortunately this didn't help: Ubuntu won't recognize dvd drive
And since I can't rightly find the drive by browsing the folders, I'm almost positive this is not a codec problem. I'm not trying to play the movies anyway, just rip them.
I don't know if any problems like this can even be specific to XDE, or what. I installed the OS from the drive in question, I haven't the slightest why it would disappear. Thanks for taking a look!
