Linuxhelp _ Hardware Support _ cd-rw drive does not work in fedora 5

Posted by: fullur Jan 1 2007, 03:58 PM

I have a 6 year old cd-rw drive in my fedora core 5 machine. It works fine in my other machine. It is visible as the correct drive designation in the BIOS. When I get into the linux environment I can open the drive, but then it will not respond to anything until I reboot the machine. I tried leaving a disk in the drive and then rebooting just to see if maybe the problem starts when I eject but I was not able to read the disk. I immediately put it in my other pc to see if it would work there and sure enough it did. I also used this drive in this exact configuration (jumpers cables and all that) to install my current install of Fedora Core 5. Anybody know what I might be able to do about this?

What type of disk are you trying to read data or audio?
