http://ubuntuforums.org – I've just fitted a Matshita (Panasonic) UJ-875S which I transplanted from a USB caddy. Works well except for some issues: Eject keyboard shortcut does not work unless I unmount first I can't always browse the media from Nautilus Rhythmbox sometimes refuses to play CD's and then won't play any files complaining: "Failed to open output device", but I can make Totem play it as well as gstreamer from a command line I never had these issues with the last drive (LG drawer type). I'm using Jaunty. (Hardware)
