http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello All, I had Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy) and everything was working perfectly but since I am a new Linux user (as many of us are at some point of time) I manage to do something I am not sure of and now Ubuntu doesn't detect my dvd rw. It's got an IDE Interface while all my 3 hard drives are Sata. I faced a lot of other problems too. But I managed to solve ALL of them (Yeah I'm Genius Am I not :p) by just simply upgrading to Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid) but still my dvd rw doesn't seem to work. I can boot my Ubuntu installation DVD when I restart my machine but can never continue with the installation since it says it cant find the 'cdrom' Can anyone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!! PLEASE!!! Help me out?? PS. I will give you a free backstage pass to my concert if you help me out with this ;) (Hardware)
