Normally I insert a DVD in the drive and I get a prompt that leads me to the movie player app and all is well. How can I find the drive file in the event the prompt doesn't show up or something goes wrong. I looked in the dev directory and nothing jumped out at me?


you can use dmesg from terminal to find out info about connected drives, but you have to mount a device to browse the file system. DVD is usually mounted in /media directory.

  • I see the dvd in /media; thank you – naftalimich Jul 8 '12 at 17:23
