    Default More problems with OS11.1: Dont read DVD

    It appears more and more problems!

    I dont know if they are related to each other, but it startet with when Yast and zypper hung during installation.
    I read in the y2log-file something about problem reading the cdrom.

    So now i checked it by putting the OS11.1 DVD in and try to brows it. It mount up as normal, but i cant browse it.
    If there was some hw-fault then it shouldnt mount the dvd with the right dvd-label.

    Advices?

    Not necessarily, just because it recognizes the drive doesn't mean the drive is good.
    I would try the drive in another known good system, or vice versa.

    Does it read any other DVD's or CD's?

    I would start with some testing and swapping then let us know what you've got.
