After a fresh install of 12.04 on a dell Inspiron 530 when right clicking on the CD/DVD drive and selecting properties it indicates for location: "///" Obviously this drive does not work.

Whats the best fix for newb? Please don't go cryptic on me give me a long shot answer.

Much thanks in advance.

I think the default device path for CD/DVD Drives is: /dev/sr0

And when you have a CD/DVD in, you need to go to /media/[userame]/[devicename]

  • you need to view the contents of the CD/DVD or it doesn't list the drive at all? – Halta Dec 16 '12 at 17:21
  • Drive contents are not listed at all. the drive icon shows up under places then computer. It appears as an icon next to an icon labeled "file system" Clicking on the CD/DVD Drive with media in it, I've tried several difference media results in - nothing happening. – The Real Mike Dec 16 '12 at 17:31

  • "And when you have a CD/DVD in, you need to go to /media/[userame]/[devicename]" may indeed be where I need to go yet the question remains: How do I get there? – The Real Mike Dec 16 '12 at 18:11
