How can I find out the capabilities of my CDROM device? I've been trying to burn the live CD, but I can't. Ubuntu software says me there is no media in the CD drive. I then used a USB stick, but I'd like to use the CD drive too. Should I try to get a new hardware driver for it, since it does seem to be unable to recognise an empty disc.
Quite new to Ubuntu, or Linux in general, so please keep the solution simple.
