Thread: CD/DVD doesn't appear

  1. #1

    Default CD/DVD doesn't appear

    Hi, I am a OpenSuse beginner, so sorry for any dumb questions.
    I installed it (OS 10.3) from DVD w/o problems, and in the hardware information the cd/dvd drive (NEC DVD_RW ND-7550A) appears. But I cannot figure out how to access it (on the desktop there's a link to the floppy drive but not to the DVD). Do I have to install some extra driver etc.?

    CPU: mobile Athlon xp 200+ (i386)

    Thanks for any help!

    What happens when you put a CD/DVD in the drive?

    I hear it working, but nothing appears, at least not with my limited knowledge... I don't see any folder, symbol etc.(I see the floppy drive symbol for example)

    A window should pop up asking you what to do. At least with KDE.

    I am using GNOME. Nothing happens, no matter if i use a DVD or CD-ROM.

    Hi,

    I am not so familiar with gnome but you can try to navigate to /media after inserting the CD/DVD, there should be a folder named like the CD/DVD (when all works correct).

    hope this helps
