    Default 2nd dvd burner I have tried no luck seeing dvd's

    Hello been messing with linux for about 8 years now so i'm still a newbie .

    I've run into a problem when i put dvd's in it don't see them when i put cd's in it pick them right up?
    I have added my self to groups audio cdrom disks and a few others but no luck...
    I even changed out my dvd burner thinking it was messed up and the new one does the same.

    I'm thinking it something to do with the permission but i might be wrong or maybe something to do with permission for a dvd software dvdrw tools or something i don't know but i'm at a wits end.

    When i put in a cd and goto yast>check media its all good but a dvd it say no media found...

    Any and all help will be greatly appreciated thanks...

    And you are sure it is a DVD reader? :-)

    If it is IDE, make sure the jumpers are properly set and the cable is good. If it is SATA, try a different port on the mainboard.

    Do you mean data DVDs that are not being mounted? KDE, Gnome....? Device notifier issue perhaps? Please supply more context...
