I just noticed that if a insert a CD or a DVD of any kind, the Drive will start spinning but it will not show the mounted disc. Earlier it used to ask me what to do with the media inserted. Now it doesn't even do that. I ran the following commands in terminal:
$ eject -n eject: device is `/dev/sr0' $ sudo mount -o ro,unhide,uid=1000 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom mount: mount point /mnt/cdrom does not exist
What can I do to get the functionality back on my drive? I am running Ubuntu 11.10.
thanks Waltinator: I ran the 'dmesg' but don't know what I'm looking for. Im a newbie on this. The same thing with the 'ls -rlt /var/log' command. Should I create the directory for the mount? at this point really don't know what to do. – Cisco Sán 7 hours ago
After I successfully inserted a CD, following are the first 3 lines of
$ dmesg [ 4804.416018] wlan0: no IPv6 routers present [ 8214.125450] ISdit ISO 9660 Extensions: Microsoft Joliet Level 3 [ 8214.136556] ISO 9660 Extensions: RRIP_1991A

The first line is a previous event, my wireless going online. The next 2 lines are a good result. The number in square brackets is "seconds since boot", the rest of the line is usually helpful. And no, you should NOT create the mount point. Let's try to get the automatic mounting to work. – waltinator
These are my last 3 lines of

It looks like your CD/DVD drive is not connected to the data bus, and not causing an interrupt when you insert a platter. Try
dmesg | grep -A8 CD-ROMwhich should show you what the system thought was available when it came up. – waltinator
This is my terminal output:

OK, your system sees the drive. Can you open and close the tray with
eject -t? Run
udevadm monitorwhile you insert a CD (type ^C when done) and see if you get "change" and "add" messages. – waltinator
eject -tdoes nothing.
