  • None of these looks like it would definitely be a CD drive - closest is /dev/sg0 which is a generic SCSI device but that's not definitely a CD. That, along with the lack of a general /dev/cdrom indicates your system may have other issues recognising that drive. Apr 13 '15 at 1:52

    kng190's suggestion for using lsblk command is a good one - try that and post output here for more assistance. Apr 13 '15 at 1:53

None. You do not seem to have the usual ones, i.e., cdrom, cdrw, dvdrom, dvdrw, and sr0.

  • @Danatela are you sure? Cuz it perfectly answers the title. None of the listed devices is a cdrom ...
