I'm new to Ubuntu.
I installed Ubuntu 14.04.3 from a disk I downloaded and burned on this laptop whilst it was running Win8.1. Laptop is an HP Pavilion g6.
Clearly the CD/DVD drive works, as the instillation completed, but now Ubuntu does not read the drive.
I put cds in, and get the standard mechanical sounds, but nothing on screen.
media/cdrom is present and correct, but without any contents (regardless of having a disk in the drive or not).
sudo lshw -class disk and received:
*-disk description: ATA Disk product: ST1000LM024 HN-M vendor: Seagate physical id: 0.0.0 bus info: scsi@0:0.0.0 logical name: /dev/sda version: 0002 serial: S2SWJ9ACA11106 size: 931GiB (1TB) capabilities: gpt-1.00 partitioned partitioned:gpt configuration: ansiversion=5 guid=a1e00938-1015-4bb4-9a4b-a95f404e111d sectorsize=4096
Not sure what command I should run in order that I can access cds and dvds on this drive.
